    Join this panel as it breaks down the considerable issues involved in protecting the public regarding professional liability insurance for lawyers.

    Two states recently passed measures mandating professional liability insurance for lawyers, the first to do so since Oregon created its Professional Liability Fund in 1978.  Some states have considered and rejected a mandatory insurance model; still others have added teeth to mandatory disclosure rules.California, with 266,000 licensed attorneys, is conducting a statutorily mandated study of all insurance options, through a Malpractice Insurance Working Group. The Group's findings, due in 2019, are sure to provoke great debate.

    This program provides current and valuable information on regulation of lawyers’ financial accountability to clients, in particular mandatory liability insurance and disclosure of lack of insurance:

    • Is this a solution chasing a problem?
    • Is there solid information that supports the need?
    • Will imposition of these requirements impact lawyers' ability to provide low-cost (or no cost) services to clients, or prevent lawyers from practicing at all if they cannot acquire the required insurance?

    In addition, the program will detail how different jurisdictions have chosen to address these issues; and will address the legal and market ramifications of the various insurance models.
