The declaration of legislative policy of this subtitle is as follows:
It is hereby declared by the general assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky that
the availability of legal professional liability insurance for attorneys-at-law is
a necessity; and without such insurance, legal services may be severely curtailed;
and that while the need for such insurance is increasing, the supply is not adequate
and is likely to become less adequate in the future; and that present plans to provide
adequate legal professional liability insurance in Kentucky have not been sufficient
to meet the needs of our citizens. It is further declared that the Commonwealth has an obligation to provide an equitable
method whereby every insurer licensed to write personal liability insurance in Kentucky
be required to meet this market demand. It is the purpose of this article to define this obligation and provide a mandatory
program to assure an adequate supply of legal professional liability insurance coverage
in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
