The theme of the conference is: "Liability trends in a transitioning world”. Each of the three session explores an area in which both legal standards and political choices are highly uncertain and could possibly shift. The first session on the dynamics of social inflation in light of the pandemic investigates the drivers of social inflation and its potential to spread beyond the U.S., with COVID-19 as a potential catalyst. The second session on climate liability risk will shed light on the rise in climate-related litigation in a number of countries. Finally, the third session addresses potential regulatory frameworks for efficiently allocating liabilities related to the use of artificial intelligence.
The Evolving Liability Conference (ELC) is an annual convening of experts from the re/insurance industry, academia and the legal community to discuss the dynamics of liability law, litigation and underwriting and the implications for the re/insurance industry.
