CLE Course: Recent Litigation and Legislation in Insurance Law

CLE Course: Recent Litigation and Legislation in Insurance Law by Evan Schwartz

In addition to my law practice, I have the honor of serving as a faculty member on, which is the largest online, continuing legal education (CLE) provider in the United States. I have 11 lectures available, some of which I delivered on my own, and some with the help of my partner, Matthew Conroy. Those lectures are available for purchase and viewing on LawLine.                             

Today, I want to talk to you about two lectures that Matthew Conroy and I will be giving on May 1st. The first part of the series is titled, “Recent Litigation and Legislation in Insurance Law.” We will offer an update for the legal profession on the trends in insurance coverage litigation. The focus of this particular lecture is going to be on topics like first-party insurance coverage, what’s going on in the long-term disability industry, the life insurance industry, and the health insurance industry, all from a law and litigation perspective.                             

The lecture will cover a broad swath of what’s going on in the law of the United States, with a specific focus on states like New York, California, and Virginia. Additionally, we plan on spending some time on the Affordable Care Act,  now that it’s going to be around for awhile. We’ll also spend time on recent developments in ERISA law, which is a federal statute that governs employee benefits. 

In addition, we’ll be updating people on recent events in third-party liability coverage. The particular areas we’ll be covering include:

•General liability and the duty to defend;

•Employer Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI);

•Directors and Officers Liability Insurance (D&O); and 

•Cyber Liability Policies.

Anyone interested in learning about particular areas of insurance recovery should feel free to look at and view any of my other lectures on LawLine with both Matt Conroy and myself. If you’re not a lawyer, you can still watch them for a fee for each lecture individually. 

Those that are lawyers are able to get their CLE credits without having to go to physical lectures, simply by buying a subscription to LawLine and then watching anything that’s available on it. Matt and I look forward to making our years of experience available to everyone, and we hope to “see” you there. 

In my next blog, we’ll discuss our lecture concerning ethically representing parties in insurance coverage matters.
