The Legal Malpractice Symposium includes two presentations designed to educate attendees on basic and emerging issues involving claims against attorneys. The Symposium will provide information all lawyers should know, especially lawyers involved in defending claims against attorneys or who serve in a general counsel capacity for his or her firm.

Session I: Insurance 101 for Law Firms
Although most lawyers are covered by their firm's insurance policy, many are not familiar with it. This program will provide you with a better understanding of your lawyer's professional liability policy and discuss coverage issues that arise in claims against attorneys

Session II: Emerging Issues In Claims Against Attorneys
Curious as to what types of practices or errors most often give rise to claims against lawyers? Are you aware of the cutting-edge claims that clients are asserting against attorneys? Come learn from an attorney who prosecutes claims against attorneys and an attorney who defends claims against attorneys and learn what you can do to reduce the risk of being sued.
