This Third Edition
includes many new cases and notes, as well as a thorough revamping of a number of sections and chapters. For example, Chapter 2 now brings together materials on fundamental assumptions of insurance law. A new Chapter 3 brings together a variety of materials on both judicial and legislative regulation of the insurance business.
The authors designed this edition towards three primary goals: (1) To impart an understanding of basic insurance law through the cases and notes;
(2) To raise fairly debatable, provocative issues, which will involve students in legal analysis and resolution;
(3) To inform students about basic insurance business practices, as well as some of the more practical problems faced by attorneys, judges, and insurance regulators in the real world.
The overall aim is to impart a sound foundation in law and legal analysis, an understanding of the business of insurance, and an appreciation of the role of insurance in modern society.
The book is designed for either a three- or four-hour course in insurance law, but through some judicious editing it may also be used in a two-unit course.
