USI Affinity, CNA and the Pennsylvania Bar Association Announce New Graduate Attorney Lawyers’ Professional Liability Program
- USI Affinity
New program offers complimentary lawyers’ professional liability coverage for newly admitted attorneys in Pennsylvania
USI Affinity, CNA and the Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA) today announced the availability of a “New Graduate Attorney Lawyers’ Professional Liability Program,” which offers up to two years of complimentary Lawyers’ Professional Liability (LPL) Insurance coverage to attorneys admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar within the past three years. This program is the first of its kind to be offered to Pennsylvania attorneys.
USI Affinity’s Vice President of Bar Association Programs, Shelly Lawson, stated: “With new attorneys facing many challenges opening new firms, we wanted to develop a solution to help them lessen the financial burden without sacrificing the important coverage and risk management protection that a Lawyers’ Professional Liability policy affords.”
The “New Graduate Attorney Lawyers’ Professional Liability Program” will reduce costs for existing CNA insured firms by discounting the rate for adding a new attorney to the policy as long as the individual is a PBA member, and they were admitted to the Bar within the past three years. The program also alleviates the LPL expenditure for new attorneys and ensures the completion of proper risk management courses.
“USI Affinity and the Pennsylvania Bar Association continually work together to better serve Pennsylvania attorneys, and we are thrilled to pioneer this new offering to our members,” stated Barry Simpson, executive director of the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
Pennsylvania Bar Association President, Dave Schwager, added: “I am excited to launch this first of its kind program, available exclusively to PBA members, to help young lawyers secure the insurance they need to establish their practice at no cost. Programs like these that help further the success of new lawyers in our community are an essential part of the value the association brings to attorneys across the state.”
