Ethics Essentials and Leadership Tips for Staff and Outside Insurance Defense Counsel
Temple University Beasley School of Law, 1 PM GMT
This program focuses exclusively on ethics and leadership issues for insurance defense counsel. Working with insured clients and claim departments, whether as staff or outside counsel, presents unique ethical challenges.

· An ethics author and practice expert will lead an interactive presentation on conflicts of interest, including current and prior representations, multiple representations, and insurer and insured issues.
· An insurance defense ethics scholar and practitioner will speak on the duty of confidentiality and the challenges presented with ever-evolving modes of communication.
