February 8, 2007, Alexandria, Va. — The American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) released the updated Bankruptcy and Insurance Law Manual, Second Edition, to cover the basics of insurance law for the bankruptcy professional, as well as bankruptcy principles for the insurance professional. Author of the first edition, published in 2004, Susan N.K. Gummow (Clausen Miller PC; Chicago) updated theManual to incorporate legal changes implemented by the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, as well as a glossary of key bankruptcy and insurance law terms.

The updated Bankruptcy and Insurance Law Manual distinguishes 'claims' in an insurance sense from those under the Bankruptcy Code, and describes the duties of both the insurer and the insured under insurance law.

The 204-page softbound manual is available for purchase at ABI’s Online Bookstore. Click here to order. http://www.abiworld.org/source/orders/index.cfm?task=3&SKU=07_003
