Alberta Lawyers Insurance Association (ALIA) & Insurance Claims
The Alberta Lawyers Insurance Association (ALIA) manages the insurance program for Alberta lawyers. Similar to malpractice insurance, the program provides professional liability insurance to Alberta lawyers.
Professional liability insurance ensures lawyers are protected if they are liable for negligence and ensures that clients receive the compensation they are entitled to.
The Alberta Lawyers Insurance Exchange (ALIEX), managed by ALIA is a reciprocal insurance exchange that provides professional liability insurance for all practicing lawyers in Alberta. ALIEX is able to provide lawyers with a reliable and permanent source of insurance.
Every Alberta lawyer in private practice must purchase the mandatory insurance coverage. Excess coverage is voluntary and is available through the Canadian Lawyers Insurance Association (CLIA). CLIA offers excess limits of $1 million to $9 million.
