Insurance Law Course: Admission of extrinsic evidence where there is an insurer’s duty to defend

The liability insurer’s duty to defend is based on the true nature of the allegations against the insured and the exhibits supporting these allegations. Documents explicitly referred to in the pleadings are also taken into consideration.

As an exception and under certain conditions, the insurer or the insured may be allowed to present additional evidence. This course will address recent trends in the courts regarding the administration of extrinsic evidence and their implications for the hearing of Wellington Motions.

On March 11, Jean-François Gagnon, lawyer, partner and chief executive officer at Langlois lawyers and Jean-François Landry, a lawyer at Langlois lawyers, delivered a course in insurance law. Our lawyers regularly present courses to update your knowledge and provide new skills.
