JUR5450 – Marine Insurance
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
New course code starting from the springsemester 2012 - please see the website for JUS5450 – Marine Insurance (the course now gives 10 credits).
The Marine Insurance law deals with the rules and regulations regarding marine insurance. The course is purely contract law, and includes the Norwegian Marine Insurance Plan 1996, Conditions relating to Insurance for the Carriage of Goods, and P&I Insurance conditions. The course is divided into two main parts. The first part relates to the rules that are common for all or most marine insurance branches. The second part relates to the rules for the individual branch, i.e. hull insurance, insurance on interest, war risk insurance, loss of hire insurance, P&I insurance and cargo insurance.
You will learn how the marine insurance market is organized in different types of contracts and what is covered under these contracts. You will also learn what kind of issues the insurance contracts address. The aim is a good understanding of the concept of marine insurance and the content of a marine insurance contract.
