Everest mountaineer Mark Inglis and tv reporter Mike McRoberts are among the guest speakers appearing at the annual conference for the New Zealand Insurance Law Association (NZI
LA) this September.
The conference theme – Is fair, fair? – promises to look at the concept from various angles. The first keynote address sees Professor Aldolfo Paolini from the University of Buckingham discussing UK reforms, civil liability and fairness.
From the University of Exeter, familiar face Professor Rob Merkin
QC makes a repeat appearance alongside Amokura Kawharu of the University of Auckland asking whether reinsurers have got a fair deal in light of cognition.
And there is a panel session on the Fair Insurance Code looking at the implications for self regulation and the effect on the current environment and legal thinking featuring panellists Crossley Gates
of DLA Piper NZ
, Tim Grafton from the Insurance Council of New Zealand and Susan Taylor
from Financial Services Complaints.
Mike McRoberts will talk about reporting on natural disasters as the dinner speaker while Mark Inglis is set to wow with his story of climbing Mt Everest as a double amputee the following morning.
Other sessions include Delta
Insurance’s Craig Kirk and Leah Mooney of Minter Ellison looking at cyber risks and law and a panel discussion on the impact of the new HSE law on underwriting and risks.
Some sponsorship opportunities are still available for the conference which is being held at the Viaducts Events Centre in Auckland on 10 and 11 September 2015.
Registrations are now open and can be made here.
