November 8, 2017 - Utmost Good Faith: Yesterday and Today

— filed under:

Law Society Classroom, 219 Kennedy Street, Winnipeg

November 8, 2017     12:00 pm to 1:30 pm


Although decided in another age and time, the seminal insurance case of Carter v. Boehm is perhaps more relevant today than ever. In this case the eminent jurist, Lord Mansfield, discussed the duty to disclose and introduced the concept of utmost good faith in insurance law. 250 years later courts are applying Lord Mansfield’s principles to more than just contracts of insurance with significant implications for general contract law.

  • Examine the facts of Carter v. Boehm in their historical context;
  • Review Lord Mansfield’s findings and reasons;
  • Discuss how the case has been applied in the last 250 years; and,
  • Review how the legal principles enunciated by Lord Mansfield have relevance today beyond insurance law.
