The American Law Institute's Restatement of the

Rutgers School of Law-Camden

The Rutgers Center for Risk and Responsibility and the Institute for Professional Education present a conference on The American Law Institute’s Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance. The full-day conference will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, February 27, 2015, at the Rutgers School of Law-Camden.

The Restatement aims, as former Director Lance Liebman said, to seek “the efficient and fair rules that should govern the insurer/insured relationship.” The project has sparked spirited debate, and this is an appropriate time to assess the work while still early enough to influence the project.

The conference will engage academics and practicing lawyers in discussion of the issues raised by the Restatement. Topics will include insurance contract interpretation; the duty to settle; the duty to defend; vicarious liability of insurers for actions of defense counsel; and the concept of “large commercial policyholder.”

Papers presented during the conference will be published in the recently integrated journal the Rutgers University Law Review.
