Law school prepares you to issue-spot, analyze hypothetical facts against the law, and professionally advise your client as to what is legally possible, but it is not generally focused on what to do once you have completed these tasks.  This course is designed to explain those potential next steps.  Specifically, this course will introduce students to Risk Management and how, as future lawyers, you must understand and apply its basic concepts to succeed in the practice of law. The first portion of the course will provide an introductory overview to the concept of "risk," including a discussion of the roles and responsibilities of the client/attorney/risk manager, the traditional tools used to manage risk, and how to apply these tools in support of your client. The second portion of the course will focus on one of the most common (and misunderstood) ways lawyers assist their clients in managing risk: contractual risk allocation (including the role of insurance). Please do not miss this unique opportunity to learn and discuss such an important topic with a former corporate risk manager and current in-house counsel.
