LAW 8511 - Liability, Risk and Insurance

All businesses and governments face potential assertions of legal liability, and run the risk of having a penalty assessed against them by a court; they must therefore insure against or otherwise offset the risk of such liability. This course will explore the liabilities faced by modern businesses and governments, the kinds of risks that can flow from those liabilities and the instruments and strategies employed to offset that risk, including choice of a particular business structure.
