About the GCBFL- Manupatra Academy Certificate Course:

The COVID-19 pandemic and the recent natural disasters have shown us that our world is full of uncertainties and risks. Individuals, families, businesses, properties, and assets are exposed to different types and levels of risks. These include the risk of loss of life, health, assets, property, etc. As it is not always possible to prevent unwanted events, the financial market has developed products that protect individuals and businesses against such losses.

Insurance is a financial product that reduces or eliminates the cost or effect of loss caused by different risks and compensates with monetary resources. It is a social device that safeguards people’s interests from loss and uncertainty. Apart from protecting individuals and businesses, it also contributes to the general economic growth of society by providing stability to the functioning of the process. The insurance industries develop financial institutions and reduce uncertainties by improving financial resources.

Further, it strengthens the functioning of businesses and generates long-term financial resources for industrial projects. Among other things, it also encourages savings among individuals and creates employment for millions. Considering the significance of the insurance sector for people from Law and other disciplines as a specialized area of their expertise, the GNLU Centre for Banking and Financial Laws (GCBFL), in Co-partnership with Manupatra Academy, is offering a Certificate Course on “Insurance Law and Practice.”
