Description The lecture deals with insurance contract law containing the provisions of the law of obligations for insurance contracts. It also covers the law of insurance mediation. The central source of law is the Insurance Contract Act (VVG). The VVG of 1908 has been fundamentally reformed for the first time by the Act on the Reform of Insurance Contract Law, which came into force on 1st January 2008. The lecture focuses on the general part of insurance contract law and the references to civil law. Using selected examples from the areas of health, life and damage insurance, typical problem areas of special insurance contract law will also be examined.
