The primary objective of the National Insurance Law listserv is to facilitate the sharing of information and ideas to assist members in their practices. In order to encourage full participation by all members, participants share a responsibility to be respectful of the broad diversity of opinions, personal backgrounds and practice areas of our members. Where possible, postings should be concise and repetition avoided. Participants are expected to balance the relevance and importance of any posting with its potential impact on other members. The integrity and effectiveness of the listserv is dependent on the professionalism and collegiality of all members.

The Insurance Law Section brings together CBA members with an interest in all facets of insurance law. Our members include in-house counsel and private practitioners from all parts of the country. Our members deal with all classes of life, accident, and casualty insurance, as well as corporate governance, human rights, insolvency and administrative law issues for insurance industry stakeholders.
The Section presents a seminar at the CBA Annual Meeting, either in one of the conventional continuing legal education streams or as part of its business meeting.
We plan to develop this page into an on-line presence that we hope you, our members, will find useful in your practice. Your comments are welcome; please send them to Graham Nattress by email.
