Upcoming Juristenrunde: Insurance and the Tort-Crime Boundary on the Roads: UK Developments
The Institute would like to announce a lecture on ‘Insurance and the Tort-Crime Boundary on the Roads: UK Developments’ by Jenny Steele, Professor of Law from the York Law School (UK) on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, 10:00 am.
In what ways do insurance, and insurance law, help to shape the relationship between tort and crime? This lecture considers such questions with a particular focus on road traffic liability and liability insurance in the UK. In particular, the lecture will explore the role of the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), first established in 1946 and operating through agreements with the UK government to provide compensation for those injured by the torts of uninsured and untraced drivers. Inherently the MIB deals with the tort-crime boundary, and seeks to reduce uninsured driving as part of its mission. The lecture will compare compensatory responses in both civil and criminal proceedings, and contemplates the continuing role of personal responsibility in the context of the compulsory insurance regime, with particular reference to the role of the MIB and recent developments in the courts.
All are welcome to attend.
