Program Number: 3118 Presenter: Sixtine Bousquet-Lambert, Esq., Luke McGrath, Esq., Carolina Pineda-Martinez, Esq., Eden P. Quainton, Esq., Ludovico Rossi, Esq.

Program Number: 3111 Presenter: Joshua Gold, Esq.

Participants in this session will learn the nuances of these defenses against coverage, the grounds on which state and federal courts have rejected them, and the terms in which to credibly resist coverage denials under crime policies when their organizations are the victims of cyber scams.

Program Number: 3076 Presenter: Kathleen Caminiti, Esq., Cheryl Pinarchick, Esq.

The topic of harassment, and sexual harassment in particular, has become an increasing concern for employers – not only in regard to their own personal behavior but also regarding the overall reputation of their organization as a harassment-free workplace. The #MeToo movement has heightened awareness of gender and power issues. However, an unintended consequence of the #MeToo movement had been risk of segregation of women professionals, a phenomenon that ultimately can lead to the denial of advancement opportunities and pay disparity.

We will explore the ramifications of gender segregation in the #MeToo era, provide an overview of current pay equity laws, and offer practical advice on how to identify and address implicit bias that can lead to potential gender discrimination and pay

Program Number: 3068 Presenter: Professor Brian Fitzpatrick, Esq.

In this program, Professor Fitzpatrick discusses his new book The Conservative Case for Class Actions (University of Chicago Press, 2019).
