This casebook is the product of the authors' nearly sixty collective years of teaching and practicing Insurance Law. One of the authors has over two decades of experience litigating and trying insurance coverage claims, which means the casebook is written from both academic and practice-oriented perspectives. The casebook lends itself to teaching Insurance Law as a traditional 2- or 3-credit doctrinal course or as an experiential course because it includes numerous practice-oriented exercises that can be assigned throughout the course. The casebook covers traditional Insurance Law topics such as insurance contract formation and interpretation, insurance regulation, insurable interest, bad faith insurer breaches, property insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, commercial general liability insurance, claims made liability insurance, and auto insurance. In addition, unlike some Insurance Law casebooks, this casebook includes sections on choice of law, personal and advertising liability coverage for intentional torts and intellectual property infringement claims, proofs of loss, examinations under oath, efficient proximate cause, ensuing loss clauses, anti-concurrent causation exclusions, and business interruption insurance.
