MDJW UNIVERSITY: TEXAS INSURANCE SEMINAR (NOVEMBER 15, 2011)

October 27, 2011

The lawyers of MDJW will host a free continuing education seminar in Dallas on November 15, 2011 covering the latest developments in Texas insurance law, litigation management, and trial strategy. Lawyers from the firm’s tort trial group and its insurance trial team will provide updates on a host of cutting edge topics for those in the insurance industry who handle claims or manage litigation.  This free one-day program will cover the latest claims handling issues, coverage issues, and litigation strategies arising out of auto and HO claims, construction defect claims, responsible third party claims, and primary/excess issues.  We will also be examining the implication of the 2011 Texas “Tort Reform” Legislation, the future of Texas bad faith litigation, continuing Stowers exposures, and much more. A special lunch presentation from one of the nation’s best jury science researchers will examine recent discoveries from Texas jury research projects.  Chris Martin, Mark Dyer, Barrie Beer, Andrew Schulz and many of the other lawyers of MDJW will be speaking at this program.  CE credit from the Texas Department of Insurance (including consumer protection hours) and CLE credit from the State Bar of Texas will be available for each attendee.  The program will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on November 15, 2011 in the large auditorium at the Studio Movie Grill, 4721 W. Park Boulevard Plano, TX 75093.  The venue is located in north Dallas just off the Dallas North Tollroad, one mile north of the George Bush Turnpike.  The venue is easy to reach from Love Field and any location in the DFW metroplex.  Although attendance is free, we do need each attendee to register in advance so we can get an accurate count for lunch.  Registration can be completed by emailing  teresai@mdjwlaw.comor calling Teresa Ivory-Jones at 214-420-5534.  We hope to see many of our friends and clients in the insurance industry on November 15th in Dallas for the 2011 MDJW Texas Insurance Seminar.
