    Amusing panel. I wish it was on video. It was incredibly helpful to hear the U.S. Marshal's perspective! It really helped break down the practical reality of trying to seize a vessel--beyond just what the law is.

    Good multi-disciplinary information.

    Excellent course and wonderful faculty members

    Excellent Course. Covered a number of topics and did it well. Just wish there could have been a video of Professor Johanson. Only audio was available (but still great).

    This is one of the better courses I have taken. Excellent speakers.

    Good Material but I wish the website provided more details when you are looking for a good set of materials to use. Some presentations were in areas that have nothing to do with my practice.

Ethical Considerations for Attorneys: Dealing with Insurers and Misbehaving Clients

Session 1: Ethical Issues When Insurers Won't Fund the Defense - There's a gap between Hamel's "fully adversarial trial" requirement and Lyda Swinerton Builders' permission for insureds to "settle or litigate, at [the insured's] option."

    Very informative and well organized, notwithstanding the title of this presentation.

    Interesting panels. The last one w Judge Hughes was a bit too conversational (he is funny, I did like that) and could've had a bit more discussion of maritime law. The first panel could've just been dubbed an intro to state court for federal practitioners, lol. Not much maritime. Love all the written materials!

Maritime Insurance Coverage and Alternative Dispute Resolution

Session 1: Mediating the Maritime Claim When Insurance Coverage is in Dispute - Explore challenges and get suggestions for handling disputed coverage in conjunction with mediating a plaintiff’s underlying lawsuit. Examine the practical and legal perils and pitfalls of handling coverage issues in mediation by a defense lawyer hired by the insurance company under reservation of rights, the respective roles of defense lawyer/coverage counsel/insurance representative, and additional complications in educating the mediator on highly specialized insurance and maritime concepts. Session 2: Complex Insurance Coverage and Dispute Resolution Issues - The wording in insurance policies is often underappreciated by the insured, particularly for catastrophic event coverage that is seldom called upon. But when a claim is pursued for a major incident such as the BP Deepwater Horizon blowout, both specific coverage and dispute resolution provisions can become serious obstacles to the insured’s ability to collect. What should be in your clients' policies?
