Thank you to Larry Bennett, the Insurance and Indemnity Law Section’s Chairperson Elect, for organizing our first educational program for the 2016-2017 year. It was a great success! The Event was held at the Birmingham Athletic Club and offered appetizers, beverages and dinner to about 50 attendees from various sections of the State Bar, including the Business Law Section and the Young Lawyers Section. Our speakers addressed the grievance process, issues affecting in-house and general counsel, the tripartite relationship between insurer, insured and counsel, and waivers. We will be organizing other programs in the future that hope to address issues that bear on a range of practice areas, so please look for announcements in 2017.
