Professor Raymond Friel, Director of ICEL, School of Law University of Limerick, hosted a summer school from the Technological University of Cologne (TH Köln).
Around 16 students spent a week in UL learning English Insurance law as a part of their Master in Insurance law offered by Cologne. Regardless of Brexit, English Insurance law and its closely related American Insurance law will remain crucial in the insurance world both within the EU and globally. This programme, taught in English, is an intensive course which covers English jurisprudence which provides a radically different perspective from that of German law. The school was very well received by the participants and continues a growing tradition for Cologne, second largest venue for Insurance companies in Germany, to see Limerick as a source of excellence with regard to English Insurance law.
