This course will cover critical elements of insurance contracts, such as the insuring agreement and the rules regarding exclusions. Also covered will be duty to defend and the implications of the tripartite relationship between insurer, insured, and defence counsel.

This half-day program is an essential introduction for solicitors and litigators to what they really need to know to navigate insurance contracts and insurance law generally.
