The Insurance Commission brings fellow members working in the field of insurance law together, who wish to share their knowledge and discuss issues related to specific problems concerning their subject-matter.

Its other aims are to promote the dissemination of legal and case law information concerning this field, to come up with common approaches and encourage collaboration between fellow members who work within the framework of different legal systems.

The Insurance Law Commission regularly deals with issues relating to insurance coverage, types of risks, policy wording, litigating insurance claims and numerous other topics relating to insurance and reinsurance. The Commission frequently participates in joint presentations with other commissions including the Health Law Commission, the Tort Law Commission and the Transport Law Commission.
