INSURANCE LAW BLOG
Insurance law falls into three major categories. First, the insurance company will hire lawyers to represent the insured in case they are sued for something related to their insurance contract. These are known as "insurance defense attorneys." The second category of insurance law helps insured people determine when an insurance company must pay a claim. Third, insurance companies typically hire attorneys to make sure the company complies with all applicable laws and regulations, which can vary by state.

INSURANCE LAW – History
The practice of insurance law, including insurance policies and claims can be broadly broken into three categories -  regulation of the business of insurance;  regulation of the content of insurance policies, especially with regard to consumer policies; and  regulation of insurance claims.
Philosophy of law is a branch of philosophy that examines the nature of law and law's relationship to other systems of norms, especially ethics and political philosophy. Philosophy of law and jurisprudence are often used interchangeably, though jurisprudence sometimes encompasses forms of reasoning that fit into economics or sociology.
