Lawsuits against lawyers arising from errors and/or omissions in the
performance of legal services are on the rise. It is now an integral
part of a law firm’s business practice to evaluate its legal risk
and malpractice insurance needs.
This program is designed to educate attorneys on how to prosecute and/or
defend a legal malpractice action. In addition, this program will
educate attorneys about their legal malpractice exposures, what they
should do in the event that a lawsuit is filed against them, and what
they should do when situations arise that indicate that a legal
malpractice claim is likely. Both solo practitioners and members of
larger firms would benefit from knowing how to assess professional
liability risk and manage legal malpractice litigation.|
The faculty consists of experienced attorneys and representatives from
leading insurance companies.Program Topics• Identifying and Responding to
