Message from the Chairs

Greetings Fellow ICLC Members:

The Journal Coverage

The Spring 2023 edition of ICLC’s journal Coverage is now available on the ICLC website. This issue of Coverage features articles on these timely and educational topics, and we urge you to get your quarterly dose of law-review quality discussions of cutting-edge issues impacting the insurance coverage practice area. Special thanks to our Coverage editor-in Chief Mike Levine, and associate editors Karin Scherner Aldama, Robert Chesler, Andrea DeField, Margaret T. Karchmer, Ian McLin, Ellis I. Medoway, Benjamin Ritz, and Andrew Willis for making this important committee resource possible.

ICLC Website

Be sure and follow the ever-changing content posted to the ICLC website, including substantive Articles on areas of law and trends relevant to the insurance coverage practice area, as well as Practice Points offering insight and guidance in an easy to access and digest format on a wide range of topics. Special thanks to our website editors, Laura Hanson and David Kroeger for their hard work in maintaining this important ICLC resource.

New ICLC Communications Platform “Committee Update”

ICLC is currently participating in Committee Update, a pilot program of the Section of Litigation that allows us to directly communicate with members of the ICLC via email. Prior to the launch of this platform, our communications were scheduled through and completed by the ABA staff, so we are pleased to now be able to efficiently share committee news, announcements, and updates with you.

Be on the lookout for future communications from ICLC, and don’t hesitate to use the platform to respond with any questions you may have

Join a Subcommittee

Please consider joining one of our many subcommittees, which will be active throughout the year generating content for our newsletters, website, and seminars. That is one of many opportunities the committee provides to form deep friendships, grow our professional networks, and of course, expand our knowledge base and sharpen our skills. Whether it's contributing articles to our Coverage publication, web content, webinar and roundtable programs, social media, our CLE events, or even a book idea, we encourage each of you to share your talents. A list of the subcommittees is available at the bottom of this page.

Also, please be on the lookout for ABA Connect emails (and make sure your preferences allow you to receive emails) because we will be announcing upcoming events and other committee-related opportunities. Of course, you can also reach out to any of the committee's cochairs or co-vice-chairs if you'd like to get involved.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Our best,

Committee Cochairs
