Illinois Defense Counsel

Online Webinar

Blank Rome partner Seth D. Lamden will serve as a panelist at Illinois Defense Counsel’s (“IDC”) BIPA Bonanza—A Year in Review, Insurance Coverage, and Best Practices Moving Forward webinar, being held Friday, January 13, 2023, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. CST. 


As many predicted, 2022 was another busy year for Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) litigation. This one-hour webinar will bring attendees up to speed on the latest BIPA-related decisions, BIPA-related insurance coverage issues, and the current state of BIPA jurisprudence. Experienced speakers will discuss compliance; workers’ compensation exclusivity issues; and BIPA’s potential impact upon insurers, insureds, and employers. BIPA-related litigation continues to rapidly expand, and the case law interpreting and applying the Act continues to evolve at a rapid pace.

This course has been approved by the Illinois MCLE Board for 1.0 hours of CLE Credit.
