Blog on liability and insurance law

The leading German portal for insurance, liability and claims law offers a VersR Online Blog in which renowned experts from academia and practice comment on current topics.

Prof Dr Loacker has been a member of the blog's permanent team of authors since it was founded and has just published the article "New regulation of Swiss insurance distribution law"

We have developed a new portal.

It's aims are:

  • To collect and digitise as much material as possible on insurance contract law since 1890 and make it available in one place.
  • To present all content in a clear graphical format and in chronological order.
  • To index all documents and make them simultaneously searchable in full text.

These goals have already been largely achieved with our recently launched v1. However, we are continuing to work consistently on optimising and perfecting our offering for legal practice.
