CLIA Voluntary Excess Program

The Alberta Lawyers Insurance Association (ALIA) recommends that law firms consider purchasing excess coverage for additional protection from the Canadian Lawyers Insurance Association (CLIA).

Excess Professional Liability Insurance

As the value of client matters and transactions increases over time, so does the need to secure adequate levels of errors and omissions insurance.

Excess coverage is effective upon acceptance of your application by CLIA.

CLIA Voluntary Excess Program applications are available at
