*Identify potential defenses to indemnity;
*Understand the mechanics of third-party-over actions;
*Identify potential problems when working on specifications calling for contractual liability insurance;
*Avoid potential problems when arranging both contractual liability and additional insured status;
*Assess the coverage grant of CGL, policies in providing contractual liability coverage, and identify pitfalls associated with this coverage; and
