  • The most important AB cases over the previous twelve months, and their practical implications
  • What’s in and what’s out at the Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT)?
  • The LAT Rules: buried treasures and hidden pitfalls
  • The developing law on what constitutes an ‘accident”: going beyond the obvious
  • Everything you’ve wanted to ask about accounting and the SABS
  • Catastrophic impairment: where the law currently stands and appears to be heading
