Webinar - For Better or For Worse

Wednesday, 10 August 2022
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm (UK time)
    • Jeff Heasman

This thought-provoking session will provide an insight into some of the more bizarre cases that have had an impact on the insurance industry, from the curious case of the snail in the ginger beer bottle, through to cannibals in a boat and many more. It will focus on how these cases have thrown up the practical and ethical issues the law has grappled with and how, ultimately, this has impacted on the evolution of the insurance industry over the years.

This is a must for anyone with an interest in the historical development of the insurance industry and how it adapts to judicial decisions.


By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Assess the social and economic context of cases that have shaped the insurance industry over the years.
  • Critically analyse previously decided case law.
  • Understand how, for better or worse, the industry has adapted to judicial decisions
