Insurance Law

Law 250






This course focuses on private insurance contracts, the practice of insurance lawyers, the insurance industry, and the role insurance plays in the lives of our clients.  At times we will also study the regulation of insurance as well as such public-insurance programs as the National Flood Insurance program, and some health- and disability-related public programs.  The principal skill students will learn is how to read an insurance contract -- an especially valuable tool for attorneys to possess. Insurance is one of the world's largest industries (often claimed to be the world's largest), involving over 3 trillion dollars of annual premium payments, and in the United States the insurance industry is directly or indirectly one of the largest employers of attorneys and law firms.
