Description The lecture deals with insurance contract law. Insurance contract law contains the regulations under the law of obligations for insurance contracts. It also includes the law of insurance mediation. The central legal source is the Insurance Contract Act (VVG). The VVG of 1908 was fundamentally reformed for the first time by the Act on the Reform of Insurance Contract Law, which came into force on 1 January 2008. The lecture concentrates on the general part of insurance contract law and the references to civil law. From the areas of health, life and non-life insurance, typical problem areas of special insurance contract law are also examined.
