    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." How insureds and their counsel fill that gap when insurers refuse to defend raises issues from legal creativity to outright chicanery.   Session 2: What To Do If Your Client Is Misbehaving, Part VIII - Real-world questions and answers regarding ethics, the law, and what your client has asked you to do—or hide.
