The lecture will provide the history of force majeure law from its early beginnings under common law and will trace its development through modern times. We will also be discussing other closely related legal principles such as Acts of God, impossibility, impracticability, and frustration of purpose. In addition, business interruption coverage will be covered, along with an in-depth discussion on what triggers direct physical loss and how these determinations vary in different jurisdictions.
