Applications are now being accepted for the Diploma in Insurance Law. This diploma will provide participants with an overview of the (re)insurance industry in Ireland and provide comprehensive coverage of all key issues relating to (re)insurance law and the litigation of insurance claims.
Ireland has become a major location for international insurance, with ten of the top twenty largest global insurance companies operating here. Particular strengths of the industry lie in the captive insurance and reinsurance areas. As well as huge growth in the industry, there has also been significant change, particularly in the regulatory environment, with the introduction of Solvency II Directive in 2016.
The course will examine insurance concepts and underline the importance of understanding key insurance documentation. It will ensure that participants are aware of the important legal issues relating to both personal and commercial insurances and the legal issues pertaining to claims.
Leading experts will consider the main legal liability insurance areas such as public liability, occupier liability, professional indemnity, and employer liability insurance. There will be a detailed examination of the Court process, case management, and alternative dispute resolution. We will offer an insight into key issues such as the reinsurance industry, insurance fraud, the MIBI, legal issues relating to intermediaries, assignments, and liquidations. The effects of new legislation on compliance in the industry will also be analysed – regulation (Solvency II Directive) and data protection (the introduction of GDPR). Finally, the applied insurance module will give an overview of construction, cyber insurance, and other growth areas.
Lecturers and tutors will be drawn from the leading law firms specialising in insurance law, insurance and reinsurance companies, insurance brokers, captive insurance and intermediaries from Ireland and the UK, and from the Central Bank of Ireland.
