About the Program:
This year the annual symposium, co-hosted by CBA Insurance Law Section and the Insurance Law Center at the UConn School of Law, will address bad faith litigation in Connecticut and throughout the United States. The first panel will discuss the current state of the law in Connecticut and elsewhere on what is, and is not, bad faith.  The second panel will address discovery and proof at trial and whether the attorney-client privilege is eroding in the context of bad faith litigation.

You Will Learn:

  • The restatement draft on bad faith
  • The standard for bad faith–is it objective or subjective, etc.
  • Bad faith in claims handling, investigations, and settlements
  • CUIPA and other states’ unfair insurance practices acts
  • Challenges of proving bad faith at trial
  • Challenges of obtaining discovery necessary to prove bad faith at trial
  • The role of the attorney-client privilege in insurance coverage litigation
