CLEonline.com, together with the Houston Bar Association (HBA), are pleased to present a special online CLE program in the area of insurance law. This seminar will provide an overview of the basics of general liability insurance, designed primarily for the litigator. Some of the topics addressed in this informative presentation include: the insurer's duty to defend versus its duty to indemnify, the three types of coverage under the typical general liability policy, to whom the coverage applies (including the limitations of Chapter 151, Texas Insurance Code), the most commonly used and litigated exclusions, issues regarding coverage for punitive damages, and Stowers (what it is and what it isn't). This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on December 11, 2015. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.



Some of the subjects to be discussed during this course include:

  • Basics of General Liability Insurance

  • Three Types of Coverage

  • Who is Covered

  • Limitations of Chapter 151

  • Texas Insurance Code
