American College of Coverage Counsel COVID-19 Webinar

The UConn program on November 12 will focus on the liability claims and related insurance issues that are now emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic.  The webinar, which has been organized by ACCC Fellows John Buchanan of Covington & Burling and Rhonda Tobin of Robinson & Cole, is being presented in conjunction with the Insurance Law Center at UConn Law and the Connecticut Bar Association.  The keynote presenter will be Professor Tom Baker, the William Maul Measey Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania and the first Academic Director of UConn’s Insurance Law Center, who will discuss the case law trends that he has observed in the course of developing Penn’s COVID Coverage Litigation Tracker website with Lex Machina.  The program will also feature a presentation on emerging liability claims by Jeffery Vita of Saxe Doernberger & Vita and Jay Sever of Phelps Dunbar, to be followed by a roundtable discussion of liability and insurance issues involving our panelists, members of the Law School community, and members of the Insurance Law Section of the Connecticut Bar Association.  UConn’s Insurance Law Center is the preeminent academic center for insurance law and risk regulation and offers the only Insurance Law LLM program in the country.  Each year the Center organizes conferences and events bringing together leading scholars, lawyers and regulators to discuss and debate the legal and public policy issues surrounding insurance law and regulation.

This webinar is free to all ACCC Fellows as well as their clients, partners and colleagues, and students, staff and faculty at UConn School of Law.
