Substantive and practical knowledge of private insurance law.

Insurance aims at coping with (economic) risks by spreading/variance and thus plays a central role in business. Correspondingly, more than a third of all civil law cases also tackle insurance law issues. Insurance contract law has been codified in a specific statute and differs from general contract law in important details that are explained and exemplified in this course. Important topics are conclusion and contents of insurance contracts (including the law of incurance intermediaries) in general and with reference to special branches, the parties' rights and duties (with regard to "Obliegenheiten"), handling of insurance claims, end of contract; but also issues of state control of insurance business and international aspects.

Lecture with power-point slides; questions and discussions welcome. 

Written test; mandatory attendance.

Legal texts (e.g. Kodex Versicherungsrecht or printouts from OLAT); textbooks and technical literature presented in one of the first units.
