About this event

This Unit will commence with a short introduction to insurance law, examining key concepts associated with general insurance as a risk transfer loss spreading arrangement. It includes analysis of the common law and relevant equitable principles and close examination of the Insurance Contracts Act 1984 (Cwlth), covering topics such as the duty of utmost good faith, causation, subrogation and double insurance and contribution. This will be followed by advanced teaching of insurance law topics selected for their interest, complexity, controversy or topicality.

The Unit will be taught intensively using a combination of presentations by interstate and local leading insurance practitioners/academics with tutorial and whole group discussion of each Topic. It will be taught by Greg Pynt (Barrister), Ian Enright (Chairman of the Australian College of Insurance Studies), Fred Hawke (Clayton Utz, Melbourne), Mark Doepel (Partner, Sparke Helmore, Sydney) together with local presenters and tutorial facilitators, all faculty members of the Australian College of Insurance Studies.

For attendance at this short course, practitioners are entitled to up to 6 CPD points to be selected from the competency areas Ethics and Professional Responsibility (1 point available) and Substantive Law (14 points available) depending on the sessions they attend.

The CPD rules differ for jurisdictions outside Western Australia and if you are outside Western Australia, we recommend that you check with your local relevant authority whether you can claim any CPD points.
