Professional / Student Malpractice
Northwestern University maintains professional liability insurance that can be broken down into two components.
The first is entity coverage that protects the University and its employees and volunteers while acting within the scope of their duties.
The second is coverage for students who as part of required educational coursework, take part in field experience assignments or internships. These students are often asked by their host institution to provide evidence of professional liability coverage.
