1 CPD point: Substantive Law
In Australia, like many countries, insurance is an everyday part of life. Its absence can be devastating in so many ways. But unlike many countries, the Australian insurance law regime is very favourable to the insured. This presentation explains why the Australian insurance law regime is so favourable and how to unlock some of its tricks which may assist insured to access funds that they thought inaccessible or had otherwise overlooked.
Some of the key issues which will be touched upon include:-
The Australian insurance law regime generally;
The Insurance Contracts Act and its key provisions;
What lies ahead – unfair contract terms.
