LSU Law was recently represented by three students at the Houston Marine & Energy Insurance Conference for the first time.
“Attending the conference has broadened my understanding of the interconnected nature of energy, maritime, and insurance markets. We were able to learn so much about the industry by networking with insurance representatives, attorneys, manufacturers and industry experts,” says Daniel Bosch, president of the LSU Law Maritime and Admiralty Law Society. “The conference is truly a meeting ground of so many diverging areas that all play a part in the region’s energy market.”
Attending the conference—which annually attracts top talent in the marine, energy insurance and admiralty law industries—with Bosch were Cecilia Vazquez and Jay Knighton.
Conference sessions attended by the students focused on Anadarko’s legal battle to force underwriters to cover over $100 million in costs to defend claims stemming from 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the reorganization of Lloyd’s of London, and the use of federal government sanctions against marine vessels and shippers, among others.
The students were alerted about the opportunity to attend the conference, was held Sept. 15-17, after Norman “Skeet” Anseman III (’97) of Kraft Lege Anseman in Lafayette contacted the Alumni Relations office about. Anseman and his wife, Vanessa Anseman (’03) of Liskow & Lewis, also attended the conference.
