HANOVER, Md. — CounselorLibrary.com announced the release of an updated CARLAW F&I Legal Desk Book. Winner of the Axiom Business Book Award, the 390-page eighth edition of CARLAW gives readers 363 things to know about auto, marine, and RV dealer finance laws and regulations.
Authored by Thomas B. Hudson, Michael A. Benoit, Ralph J. Rohner, and the attorneys at Hudson Cook LLP, this new edition reflects the latest updates to the federal laws and regulations affecting F&I practices. Using a straightforward “Q&A” design, the book seeks to address many of the everyday compliance issues dealers face and includes links to the actual laws and regulations discussed in each chapter.
The book has been designated as the official textbook for the Association of Finance & Insurance Professionals and endorsed by the Reynolds and Reynolds company, which will host a book signing featuring Hudson and Benoit at NADA Show 2019. Reynolds and Reynolds’ director of compliance, Terrence J. O’Loughlin, described the book as “indispensable” to anyone working in an F&I-related segment of the auto industry.
“Doctors have the Physicians’ Desk Reference, lawyers have Black’s Dictionary, and engineers use the Fundamentals of Engineering,” O’Loughlin wrote. “For practitioners involved in finance and insurance, the F&I Legal Desk Book is just such a book and is a must for a true F&I professional. I personally keep it close at hand.”
