IADC's Practical Guide for Insurance Defense Lawyers

The IADC website has available for free download, in pdf format, the "Practical Guide for Insurance Defense Lawyers" (Nov. 2002), 71 pages. The preface indicates that it examines in depth the professional responsibilities of insurance defense lawyers. The preface goes on to say that:

This guide does not attempt to answer all questions, but it does provide a coherent and systematic way of thinking about them. Lawyers and law professors who read it carefully, study its logic, and ponder its arguments honestly will find their opinions about the professional responsibilities of insurance defense lawyers forever changed. More important, they will be equipped to deal coherently and pragmatically with the problemsthey confront every day.
