Parties to insurance disputes increasingly resort to litigation. This course examines a variety of cases and issues, many of them on the front pages of today's papers. It will look at insurance-related litigation stemming from the destruction of the World Trade Center, the high-profile investigations of brokers and insurers, and the asbestos liability crisis. The course will also examine recent judicial decisions affecting property casualty insurance, both personal lines and commercial, as well as reinsurance disputes. There will be class exercises and a final exam. Pre-Requisite of Principles of Insurance
