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

Live Cary | North Carolina Bar Center
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Available formats

   

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.

  • Highlights of recent complex business litigation case law

The Masters series features previous winners of the Smith/Gilchrist awards, given annually to one outstanding defense attorney (Smith Award) and prosecutor (Gilchrist Award) statewide.

This program provides valuable information, strategies and techniques for attorneys practicing in criminal courtrooms in North Carolina.

  • Why do we do this work? Joe Cheshire examines the way criminal defense attorneys need to approach their jobs and the damage done to the justice system when they fail to perform their function.
  • The many faces of argument. Locke Clifford delves into the world of framing an argument, including techniques and approaches for making winning arguments to a trier of fact in trial, to a prosecutor in plea negotiations and to a judge in sentencing.
  • Theories? We don’t need no stinkin’ theories. Tommy Manning discusses developing an overall strategy for a trial centering on theory of the case. Attendees are given tools and strategies that can be used to build a cohesive and comprehensive trial plan tied to the theory of the defense.
  • Let’s make a federal case out of it! Sandra Hairston and Randall Galyon explain the policies, guidelines and factors that their offices use in determining whether to initiate a federal prosecution.
  • The ethics of prosecution. Howard Cummings and Barton Menser participate in a panel discussion of ethics in the criminal justice system with an emphasis on the specific ethical challenges and obligations of prosecutors.

Don’t miss out as we learn “how good lawyers become great business partners” by:

  • Contributing to a successful legal department and exuding executive presence as in-house counsel
  • Taking care of your company’s brand and formulating sound legal arguments in a crisis
  • Creating efficiencies in managing contracts and handling contract negotiations

Corporate Counsel Section Pro Bono Cause 

At this year's Corporate Counsel Section Annual Meeting, attendees are again encouraged to donate to the Corporate Counsel section’s pro bono cause. 

As in prior years, the section is aiming to provide support to an organization that helps alleviate hunger from our communities. However, rather than bringing a non-perishable food item, we ask that each attendee donate (online or by check) to H.O.P.E. of Winston-Salem

Our goal is to have 100% CLE attendee participation in this initiative, so please make any contribution that you can! Together, we can help reduce hunger for less fortunate North Carolinians. Click here to donate!

H.O.P.E. (Help Our People Eat) of Winston-Salem was founded in 2013 by Hon. Ben F. Tennille upon his retirement from the bench as the inaugural judge of the North Carolina Business Court. Judge Tennille and his wife Marty, a pediatrician with a passion for child development, recognized that Forsyth County, North Carolina has the highest rate of food insecurity in the state and is among the highest in the country. Read more about this fantastic organization’s mission and vision here
