Update on Insurance Law

When: 4.30pm to 6pm, Thursday 8 August 2019

Where: Northern Club, Princes St, Auckland

The last few years have seen a variety of significant judgments and reform developments concerning insurance law. In this MASTERCLASS™ Rohan will focus on those that are likely to have a lasting significance for insurance law and practice.

In particular Rohan will examine:
•    Judgments of New Zealand courts concerning the indemnity principle, assignability of replacement benefits, concurrent causes of loss, and the insurer’s duty of good faith.
•    The abolition of the ‘fraudulent devices’ or ‘collateral lies’ rule in England.
•    The MBIE’s Insurance Contract Law Review.
•    Overseas legislative developments of interest and relevance to New Zealand.

Rohan is a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Law, and a consultant to specialist litigation firm, Adina Thorn Lawyers. Previously Rohan practised in commercial litigation at one of New Zealand's leading law firms, where he was a Senior Associate. Rohan has also worked as a Judges' Clerk at the High Court in Auckland.

He is a graduate of the University of Auckland and holds the degree of Master of Laws (First Class Honours) from the University of Cambridge.

Rohan is the new review author for the Insurance Law Review in the New Zealand Law Review. His latest review will come out in NZLR Issue 2 2019.
