Main themes
The course is structured around the types of insurance which make up the category of property/casualty insurances: property insurance, fee insurance, liability insurance. For each of these categories, the course analyses the specificities of the most-frequently-used insurance policies on the market (fire insurance, theft insurance and credit insurance as for property insurances, legal fees insurance and business income coverage as for fee insurances, professional liability insurance, automobile insurance, personal and commercial liability insurance as for liability insurance).
Other information
The course of property-casualty insurance is part of a consistent optional bloc made up of three courses. For the students to fully benefit from the course, they are required to know the rules commonly applicable to all the insurance contracts such as they have been taught in the course of Insurance Law. The course of Insurance Law is thus a prerequisite. The training relies on a syllabus of documents containing all the policies examined during the classes. Naturally, the examination of the policies supposes an active participation of the students. As in the other courses of the option, the acquisition of the Code of Insurance, edited by Bruylant (collection Code en poche) is highly recommended. The final exam will be oral in front of each of the professors, respectively for the part they are teaching. A written preparation of 20 minutes precedes the exam.
