Legal Malpractice 2017

Total Credits: 4.0 (Ethics 3.0, Law Practice Management 1.0)
Lawsuits against lawyers arising from errors and/or omissions in the performance of legal services continue to rise. It is an essential part of a law firm’s business practice to evaluate its legal risk and malpractice insurance needs. This program is designed to educate attorneys on how to prosecute and/or defend a legal malpractice action. In addition, this program will educate attorneys about their legal malpractice exposures, what they should do in the event that a lawsuit or a grievance complaint is filed against them, and what they should do when situations arise that indicate that a legal malpractice claim is likely. Both solo practitioners and members of larger firms would benefit from knowing how to assess professional liability risk and manage legal malpractice litigation.
You will learn to:
Identify potential legal malpractice claims and avoid professional liability risk
Identify the main elements of a legal malpractice suit
Prosecute and defend a legal malpractice action through trial
Understand the Attorney Disciplinary Process
Interact with professional liability insurance companies
