2017 Litigation Management Institute

Presented by the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance, the Litigation Management Institute (LMI) is the first certification program specifically designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the business of litigation management. The program is designed to bridge the gap between legal theory and litigation strategy, and the business aspects of litigation management.  Each of the courses is a combination of pre-work and in-class course instruction, and each evening, small groups will work on projects related to the course material covered that day. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive the Certified Litigation Management Professional (CLMP) designation.
The 2017 Litigation Management Institute will be hosted at Loyola Law October 19th-October 22nd.

A limited number of students will be able to attend this great tuition-based program, free of charge!  This is the perfect opportunity for those interested in insurance defense to learn a great deal and network with practicing attorneys and claims adjustors. 

All available student registrations were given out on a first come, first serve, basis and are now filled.

Here is what our students who attended the program in 2016 had to say:

"Choosing to participate in the Litigation Management Institute was one of the best decisions I've made in my time at Loyola.  Any student who intends to practice in insurance defense should absolutely try to get into the LMI.  Even though the program was only one weekend, I learned a ton about effectively managing an insurance defense practice, as well as substantive insurance issues that don't get talked about in law school.  I also now have the benefit of being a "Certified Litigation Management Professional," which is a highly esteemed designation typically reserved for professionals with at least 15 years of industry experience.  I am certain that this will give me an edge over other recent graduates during interviews and in the course of my practice.  Furthermore, as a young professional, the LMI was also a tremendous networking opportunity.  The program places a large emphasis on small group work.  I was able to form relationships with a group of professionals that I sincerely admire and respect, and I'm confident that those relationships will be ongoing.  In short, I cannot say enough about how great of an experience the LMI was and I would highly recommend it to any law student who intends to be an insurance defense lawyer."

"Being invited to participate in the Litigation Management Institute was an enriching experience. The weekend long program exposed me to various topics related to insurance defense litigation and equipped me with skills that I can apply to my future career. As a student participant, I was welcomed by those running the conference and the professionals who were in attendance. Furthermore, I was encouraged to contribute in the small group activities and discussions. At the end of LMI, I became a "Certified Litigation Management Professional." However, the most valuable thing I received was the immense support from the insurance professionals and attorneys in my group. As a law student who is about to enter the professional world, the support I received was invaluable."
