A contemporary, easy-to-teach text by the Reporters for the new Restatement of the Law Liability Insurance, this casebook invites students and teachers to re-imagine the field of Insurance Law. The authors demonstrate the big-picture role of insurance law and policy in American business and society, exploring federal-state regulatory roles in depth as well as the traditional topics covered in casebooks. Insurance Law and Policy: Cases and Materials uses more statutory material than any other casebook, with statutes typically presented through problems. Manageable assignments contain one major case followed by informative notes, questions and a problem. This text appeals to Insurance teachers as well as teachers of Torts and Contracts considering a new course. The Teacher's Manual--with case briefs, backgrounds on selected cases, simple diagrams that explain complex issues, and answers to questions and problems--is especially useful for instructors new to the course.
