Insurance Seminar / Course

This course will provide an overview of insurance coverage and the factual and legal issues that are often the subject of disputes between insurers and policyholders. Attention will be given to the contractual foundation of the insurer-policyholder relationship, as well as the unique set of legal principles that have come to govern that relationship. Both first-party and third-party liability lines of coverage will be addressed, with a focus on commonly held types of commercial coverage, including Property, Business Interruption, Cyber, Commercial General Liability (“CGL”), Professional Liability, and Directors’ and Officers’ Liability (“D&O”).

The course requires all students to write a paper. The writing requirement can be satisfied by submitting a paper in conjunction with the Cordish writing competition.
