    Collapse Back to the Basics (2019 Insurance Law Section Annual Meeting and CLE)

    The Insurance Law Section’s 2019 CLE is premised on a “back to basics” concept to assist attorneys and insurance adjusters both new to and well versed in insurance law.

    Insurance law encompasses many issues and areas of practice, including whether a policy of insurance potentially provides coverage for a claim and disputes between third parties and individuals or entities listed as named insureds or identified as additional insureds under a policy.

    In addition to those matters, learn from exceptional attorneys as they share, explain and provide helpful practice information in the areas of commercial general liability insurance, excess and umbrella insurance, directors and officers insurance, errors and omissions insurance (malpractice insurance), medical health insurance, disability insurance, automobile insurance and homeowner’s insurance.

    The program also addresses issues concerning insurance carriers’ duty to defend and provides an excellent role play of an insurance coverage dispute.

    This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about analyzing and handling insurance law matters, and is useful to attorneys from a wide range of practice areas.

    Fine-tuning the relationships between the law, attorneys, citizens, government and the Constitution can seem as if it requires that perfect pitch so few of us have. The maestros in the sound booth adjust the volume, tone, rhythm and other elements of music, musicians and instruments as they record.

    Similarly, attorneys work to adjust the sometimes-competing elements of the music of our law, government and democracy, leading to harmony or discord.

    This program presents a full-day’s concert of sessions dealing with the legal music of our lives.

    Topics include:

    • A view from the bench regarding Section 1983, government and citizen suits
    • Protecting voting rights and empowering citizens in environmentally vulnerable areas
    • Data privacy and legal ethics
    • Administrative searches and warrants
    • Injunctive relief when citizens participate in democracy
    • Protecting rights and citizens from debtors prison

    Come join us on Friday, February 22, as we turn up the volume on our knowledge of these chords of law.
