Rating: Law and Practice 2018 - Applying Case Law to Practice
Best rating practice cannot be achieved without understanding case law. This event is far more than a case law review. A panel of leading Lawyers and Practitioners will review the important, topical cases and explore the nuances of what is best and effective practice in the light of these decisions.

Rating: Law and Practice is now an established and successful annual feature within the
rating calendar. It goes to the very soul
of what rating is about, which is how the impact of case law in rating work is profound and
dictates how you practice. It is always
valuable to hear about the cases, but the real value is in understanding the
impact and significance of those cases on the way you work. This event provides commentary from the Lawyers, the VOA and those from Private Practice on the key areas of rating and
on the major cases impacting on it.
The formula is a simple one. We take a landmark case or an area of practice that is topical and/or contentious. The cases are then summarised by the panel, which then turns into a debate between the Practitioner, the VOA and the Lawyer to extract the nuances out of the subject.
This event is so much more than a case law review. It goes to the very heart of whether, based on existing case law, you have an assessment you can appeal.
This event has identified 8 core areas of rating practice. Leading Lawyers and Rating Advisors, along with senior VOA contributors will review key cases that create precedent, under the auspices of Upper Tribunal Member Mr Paul Francis. They will then explore the extent and limits of how they impact on rating practice. The audience will be encouraged to join in on the unfolding debates.
