Welcome to LawShelf’s course on insurance law.  This course looks at the rules that govern many kinds of insurance and introduces you to the purposes that insurance fulfills and the regulatory landscape against which it is governed.

This is an introductory level course and no prior knowledge of law or the insurance industry is required.

The course starts with an overview of insurance, its purposes and the parties to an insurance contract. We also look at the origins of federal regulation of the insurance industry and discuss the concurrent state regulatory activities that are also binding on insurance agreements.
