Course Description

Time 61 minutes
Difficulty Beginner

What do extreme weather, environmental disasters, ride/home/work-sharing, artificial intelligence and cyber breaches have in common? They are all part of the brave new world we call the 21st Century. This course will assist coverage attorneys and those in coverage-adjacent fields recognize potential coverage issues in these emerging areas and demonstrate the ways in which traditional policies may respond to them, as well as identifying new coverage products designed to address these insurance trends.

Presented by attorney Mirna Santiago, the discussion is fast-paced and wide-ranging, all while providing answers to your pressing coverage questions, whether you are an experienced coverage attorney or new to the field.

  4. Obtain practical guidance on how ambiguity in a policy may operate to widen the scope of coverage
  5. Identify new insurance products and how they apply
