CALBAR MIWG

California Bar Association Malpractice Insurance Working Group

About the MIWG

The California State Bar has formed the Malpractice Insurance Working Group (MIWG) to study several legal malpractice issues to “protect the public.”

The California State Bar Board of Trustees is considering:
1 — Mandating Legal Malpractice Insurance for attorneys as a condition of licensing, except for in-house counsel and government attorneys.
2 — Establishing a Captive Fund run by the State Bar, a private insurance company, or an entity created expressly for this purpose.

Past meeting agendas are provided below. Please review the material and voice your opinion about how such a decision would impact your practice, access to justice and any other consideration.
