    Join us for the annual CBA Insurance Law Committee seminar where speakers will address cutting edge insurance coverage issues associated with BIPA claims, Artificial Intelligence, and the GIPA class actions vs. life insurers.

    Join us for the annual CBA Insurance Law Committee seminar where speakers will address cutting edge insurance coverage issues associated with BIPA claims, Artificial Intelligence, and the GIPA class actions vs. life insurers.

    Topics and Speakers:
    Insurance Coverage for BIPA Claims
    Fingerprint mapping, retinal scanning, facial and voice recognition, and other biometric identifiers are no longer just the stuff of futuristic films. These are all metrics that have become increasingly common in our everyday world from accessing your phone, to starting your shift at work. And while these advanced technologies can certainly elevate our lifestyle and productivity, the collection, storage, and use of these metrics can also present new and unique questions when it comes to insurance coverage. These unique questions and disagreement among courts in how to handle them in the legal landscape will be discussed.
    Nicholas J. Daly, Cruser, Mitchell, Novitz, Sanchez, Gaston & Zimet, LLP
    Prathyusha Matam, Cruser, Mitchell, Novitz, Sanchez, Gaston & Zimet, LLP 

    Artificial Intelligence 
    We are finding ourselves in the brave new world. Artificial intelligence is here and permeating our lives more and more.  While involving issues of privacy, the use of AI also raises other issues, many of which impact insurance. One recent example of the challenges of AI is reports by Tom Hanks that ads for dental plans that appeared to feature him were deep fakes created by AI.  These issues, including legal developments in insurance, including regulations, will be discussed.
    Daniel Cotter, Dickinson Wright 

    GIPA Class Actions vs. Life Insurers
    As the speakers discussed, BIPA claims are prevalent. In recent months, a new development has occurred under a second act in Illinois, the Genetic Information Privacy Act.  Life insurers doing business in the state have been sued for alleged violations of GIPA.  A brief analysist of GIPA and the nature of the suits, including questions of insurance coverage, will be discussed.

    Diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DEI”) efforts have never been universally accepted within the legal profession. Nevertheless, slow but steady progress was being made. Please join the Chicago Bar Association for a candid discussion about the impact of the SFFA cases and what’s next for DEI efforts in the legal profession. (HYBRID SEMINAR)

    Rule of Law and DEI-The Future of DEI After Students for Fair Admissions 

    This is a hybrid event with an in-person and a webinar option. Please select the appropriate button when registering if you plan to attend in-person. Event will take place at the Chicago Bar Association, 321 S. Plymouth Court, Chicago, IL 60604. Complimentary reception following event at the Chicago Bar Association.

    Diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DEI”) efforts have never been universally accepted within the legal profession. Nevertheless, slow but steady progress was being made. With the rulings in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, 600 U.S. 181 (2023) and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina, the Supreme Court held the consideration of race in university admissions decisions unconstitutional.  With that decision, affirmative action, an integral part of the strategy to advance DEI generally, was overturned. Since that decision, those opposing DEI have set their sights on corporate America and even on law firms.  Now, it’s time to take stock of DEI efforts under this new rule of law and assess the impact the SFFA decision has had and will have on undergraduate and graduate school admissions, DEI efforts in the legal profession, and DEI efforts in businesses.  How can educational institutions, businesses and law firms that value DEI continue to advance that aim consistent with this new law?

    Please join the Chicago Bar Association for a candid discussion about the impact of the SFFA cases and what’s next for DEI efforts in the legal profession and stay for a complimentary networking reception at the program. 

    Speakers:
    Linda Greene, Former Dean,1855 Professor and MSU Foundation Professor of Law, Michigan State University College of Law 
    Lea Guitierrez, Administrator, Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois 
    Andrianna Kastanek, Partner, Jenner & Block 
    Anna Lloyd, Executive Director, Chicago Committee on Minorities in Large Law Firms
    Angela Winfield, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Law School Admission Council

    Are you still practicing bad password habits, like using one or a handful of passwords for all your logins, or using easy to guess passwords like “123456” (still the most common password in use)? In this seminar, we’ll take a look at a few cloud-based password management options, then demonstrate how you can install and use Dashlane, one popular option.

    Are you still practicing bad password habits, like using one or a handful of passwords for all your logins, or using easy to guess passwords like “123456” (still the most common password in use)? If so, you and your firm’s security are at a significantly greater risk. Utilizing a password manager is one of the most significant steps you can take to improve your security online. A password manager helps you securely store your passwords and generate extremely secure ones, so you can have increased peace of mind without having to remember a million different combinations. In this seminar, we’ll take a look at a few cloud-based password management options, then demonstrate how you can install and use Dashlane, one popular option.

    In this seminar, we’ll dissect our understanding of how trauma functions in the brain, and how a client’s trauma often presents itself throughout the course of representation.

    Trauma is increasingly at the front and center of our current cultural conversations surrounding mental health, and breaking down the science behind it can significantly boost our comprehension of how it functions in society. Lawyers frequently encounter trauma in the clients they represent, and absorption of that trauma can threaten the lawyer’s own mental health. In this seminar, we’ll dissect our understanding of how trauma functions in the brain, and how a client’s trauma often presents itself throughout the course of representation. There are no quick fixes when it comes to mental health, but we’ll also discuss methods lawyers can utilize to minimize the impact of secondary trauma on their own mental health, as well as methods to lessen the likelihood of re-traumatization for their client during legal proceedings.

Initiative (Diversity, Inclusion, Culture, Equity & Engagement), would like to help CBA members learn about social justice focused organizations and how they use ADR to effect change in this second annual program.

    Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a popular term in the legal world, but what some may not know is that ADR is a proven mechanism to achieve social justice results because people learn how to peacefully solve problems as well as new processes and skills to manage conflict.

CBA members often serve on boards or represent not for profit organizations in their communities and this program will offer information about how ADR can be used to meet the needs of those organizations. 

    The event will be co-sponsored by the CBA D.I.C.E Committee and the YLS Racial Justice Coalition.
