Steven Gursten will be speaking on February 12, 2008 at Cooley Law School. Steve will be speaking to the law students on future legal careers in personal injury and insurance law. The lecture is being presented through the Career and Professional Development Office of Cooley Law School, in Lansing Michigan.
As a personal injury lawyer who handles car accidents and truck accidents throughout Michigan, Steve will be explaining to the Cooley law students how personal injury lawyers and insurance defense lawyers have been adapting to new challenges in Michigan, especially with the advent of legal caps for pain and suffering for victims of some areas of personal injury in Michigan. Steve will also talk about the challenges that auto accident attorneys face when helping car accident victims after the decision of Kreiner v. Fischer by the Michigan Supreme Court and the resultant “threshold creep” that has occurred in Michigan’s automobile accident threshold laws in the last two years.
Steve spoke at Cooley Law School last year on future legal careers in trial advocacy. Steve has been a guest lecturer for the Michigan No Fault Insurance Class, which is taught by Professor James Borin at Cooley Law School in recent years. He also volunteers at the University of Michigan Law School Trial Advocacy class, where he has served as a judge for the law students in past years.
