IIK-EKU CLE/CE Seminar Series

IIK and Eastern Kentucky University's Risk Management and Insurance Program for the past several years have collaborated in offering several CLE/CE seminars for attorneys and claims professionals. We tentatively plan to do so again in the spring of 2016 and we will announce topics and dates when they are finalized later.

Amicus Briefs

From time to time IIK will file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in cases which could have an impact on insurance law in Kentucky. We have developed a set of procedures for the filing of amicus curiae briefs in cases which merit IIK involvement and we have set aside funds for that purpose.

Members or othjer interested parties who would like to propose a case may do so by sending an application to us at amicus@iiky.org.

The application form and the memorandum outlining the policies and procedures for filing amicus briefs as approved by IIK membership are shown below:
