The Insurance Law Section is having its second annual CLE program with top-flight insurance coverage attorneys ready to present on engaging topics.  

The program is intended to provide practitioners with valuable insight and the tools needed to stay on top of insurance coverage issues.  

Skills will be sharpened and awareness levels will be raised.

And there will be plenty of opportunity to network with experienced coverage counsel from across the state.

  • Hear the latest hot topics on additional insureds, property coverage litigation, and the American Law Institute’s anticipated Restatement on Insurance
  • Find out about insurance coverage case law of great significance from North Carolina and across the country in the past year, and hear tips/traps for deposing the insurer representative  
  • Hear observations about insurance litigation from four perspectives: insured’s counsel, insurer’s counsel, mediator and judge
  • When government investigators come calling, will your policy respond and what are the strategy considerations?  
  • Learn about the ethical considerations facing coverage counsel, from pre-litigation through civil action resolution

Planned by the NCBA Insurance Law Section.

Families who come to the attention of the juvenile court system have often experienced violence or traumatic events.

This workshop informs lawyers who work with children and families about practical advice for working with children, youth and parents who have suffered traumatic stress.

Case studies and examples are used to highlight interventions before, during and after court. 

By the end of this program participants will know:

  • Age related reactions to traumatic events in young children, school-age children, adolescents, and adults
  • How court stakeholders can minimize trauma for child and adult clients before and after court in child welfare cases.
  • How court stakeholders can work to minimize trauma for children and adults in court situations

This program is funded, in part, by the US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families and the North Carolina Court Improvement Program.

Attorneys attending this program are given a historical perspective to the phenomenon of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and the evolution of the laws that affect them.  

They are provided an in-depth look at the laws enabling the relief and a step-by-step guide on how to obtain a custody order in North Carolina from filing with the clerk of court to the final custody hearing.

This program covers the best practices for applying for special immigrant juvenile status (SIJS) with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and looks at current trends in North Carolina.

Participants walk through several common case scenarios in engaging small groups. The expectation is that each participant in this training accepts at least two pro bono cases from Legal Services of Southern Piedmont (LSSP) within a year of the training date representing a UAC residing in North Carolina.  

The attorney will be fully supported by LSSP with technical assistance and guidance.

A special thank you to Legal Services of Southern Piedmont and the North Carolina Justice Center for their help with this program.

Planned by the NCBA Pro Bono.
