Course number: LAW 3022
The objective of the class is to prepare you to be an articling student to an insurance lawyer.
This is done by introducing you to basic concepts and terms in insurance law (e.g. how to interpret insurance contracts, understanding the duty of good faith at the time of contract formation and at the time of administering the policy etc.). The course will involve review of insurance policies (as assigned in class).
The class is taught primarily through lectures. Students are expected to have read the materials in advance of class and be prepared to offer their insights into the materials when requested.
The required books for the class are listed in the syllabus. Students are evaluated on a research memo due before the class on November 8, 2018 and an exam held during the exam period. Each is worth 50% of the grade.
