The American Law Institute’s “Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance” 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 yet still early enough to influence the project. The conference will engage academics and practicing lawyers in discussion of the issues raised by the Restatement. Papers presented during the conference will be published in the Rutgers University Law Review.
Topics will include:
• Insurance contract interpretation
• The duty to settle
• The defense of claims
• The concept of a “large commercial policyholder”
• Insurance Against Fines, Penalties, and Punitive Damages
