St. John's University "Profiles in Excellence," Part 1
Welcome to the first installment of a three-part series titled, "Profiles in Excellence," in which Brandon Sweitzer, Dean of the Maurice R. Greenberg School of Risk Management, Insurance and Actuarial Science at St. Johns University, interviews the recipients of the School of Risk Management's inaugural "Student Innovation in Insurance" Contest.
Held during the spring semester this year, the contest was conducted by the Greenberg School of Risk Management’s Center for the Study of Insurance Regulation and was sponsored by the Society for Law & Insurance Inc. The competition aimed to promote students’ awareness of key issues in the insurance industry and to help them develop professional research and presentation skills.
The winners were selected after an evaluation of the students' respective essays and virtual presentations, judged by a panel that included representatives of the law firms supporting the Center for the Study of Insurance Regulation --Eversheds Sutherland, Greenberg Traurig, Kennedys, and Mound, Cotton, Wollan & Greengrass – as well as members of the Greenberg School of Risk Management's faculty.
John Pruitt, Partner at Eversheds Sutherland, serves as co-host for the interview.
