New Appleman on Insurance: Current Critical Issues in Insurance Law

New Appleman on Insurance: Current Critical Issues in Insurance Law is a quarterly periodical that addresses the most urgent challenges facing insurance law practitioners. The articles either are on cutting edge issues in insurance law or recurring and still unsettled issues in insurance law. Several of the articles feature charts of how the appellate courts of many jurisdictions have decided key insurance law issues. The articles are written by practitioners and scholars of the highest caliber.
