    Product Description

    Most lawyers know about the “assumption of risk” doctrine and liability waivers, but COVID-19 has changed our perspective on what is considered reasonable or risky behavior. So how should we assess risk, or insulate ourselves and our clients from liability—if dinner-and-a-movie may be an inherently dangerous activity?

    Time to enroll in an online class addressing liability waivers in the age of COVID-19.

    This new program surveys existing Massachusetts law regarding liability waivers, including whether and why courts will enforce them. The panelists provide guidance for businesses and attorneys thinking about implementing a waiver requirement. Learn about considerations for drafting effective liability waivers, and hear helpful insight about whether and when to sign them pending resolution of this public health crisis.
