    Advance Care Planning

    4.4 (8 reviews)
    by Renee Mallett
    Attorneys can play a vital role in discussing advance care planning options with their clients prior to, during, and even after initial estate planning conversations. The Patient Self Determination Act and state laws govern the utilization of advance directives, the primary set of documents that explain a client’s advance care wishes. Advance directives typically consist of a living will or health care directive, which determines what types life-sustaining treatments the client may elect to receive, and a durable power of attorney for healthcare that affords them the ability to select a healthcare agent to make decisions should they lack decision-making capacity. This course will provide examples of a conservative approach to advance care planning using the state of Ohio as an example and contrast with the state of Washington’s approach in allowing natural death planning per its Natural Death Act.

    A Holistic Approach to Representing Victims of Intimate Partner Violence

    by Renee Mallett
    Intimate partner violence (commonly known as domestic violence, but also called family violence or interpersonal violence) is a pattern of assaultive and coercive behaviors, including physical, sexual, and psychological attacks, economic coercion, financial abuse, or litigation abuse, that perpetrators use against their intimate partners. The violence can happen frequently or only occasionally. Partners may or may not be married, hetero- or same sex couples, living together, separated, or dating. It crosses the boundaries of all ages, socio-economic statuses, religions, races, ethnicities, and nationalities. Because this is a public health issue, this continuing legal education course will assist participants in representing clients that are victims of intimate partner violence, should they want to pursue legal protections, prosecution, or child custody. This course will provide victim-centered and health-informed strategies for all aspects of intimate partner violence cases.

    Animals in the Service of People: Sense and Nonsense on Lawful Uses of Assistance Animals image

    Animals in the Service of People: Sense and Nonsense on Lawful Uses of Assistance Animals

    by Geordie Duckler
    Whether it is the Yorkshire terrier in the carrier on the airplane or the emotional support rat on the shopper’s shoulder in the grocery store, one encounters people insisting on and resisting about the use of animals to assist them with a variety of activities in the world. What are the allowable options in that regard? What does the law permit, what does the law prohibit, and what does the law simply not pay attention to at all when it comes to the service animal, the assistance animal, or the emotional support animal in a public setting. This seminar examines both the sense and the nonsense of not just the players involved but the rules that are imposed on those players – which can include not simply the animal owner but the merchant, bystander, government agent, and affected consumer as well. We do so by ferreting out the scope of regulations across jurisdictions, by specifying the questions that can and cannot be asked of certain participants, and by trying to glean what rationalizations lay behind protections and penalties in the use and abuse of dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and other animals in the service of people.

    Patent Law is a very complex and specialized area of the law.

In this introduction to Patent Law, we cover some of the basic aspects of each of those tasks: searching for patents, applying for patents, and engaging in patent litigation. We also address two lesser known patent-related subject matters—Patent Misuse and Joint Inventorship—and analyze two recent federal district court cases that focus on the topics.

    Buying and Selling the Web-Based Business: Legal, Tax and Technical Issues image

    Buying and Selling the Web-Based Business: Legal, Tax and Technical Issues

    by Cliff Ennico
    Business mergers and acquisitions are complicated transactions for any attorney representing a buyer or seller, but there are special challenges when representing a client who wishes to buy or sell a Web-based business. Unlike their “brick and mortar” counterparts, the assets of a Web-based business are primarily intangible and can easily lose value – or disappear entirely -- when the business changes hands. Making sure that all of the seller’s web domain names (URLs), e-mail and e-commerce accounts, social media pages, and web traffic transfer smoothly to the buyer without interruption requires an in-depth familiarity with Web-based businesses and how they operate. In this fast-paced presentation, hosted by a leading small business attorney, author of “Advising eBusinesses” and nationally syndicated legal columnist who has helped dozens of clients buy and sell Web-based businesses over the past 10 to 15 years, you will learn how to handle the special issues involved in selling and buying such businesses so that your M&A transactions close smoothly, on time, every time.

    4.9 (17 reviews)
    by Jan L. Jacobowitz
    The entrepreneurial cannabis industry requires legal assistance like any other growing, innovative business sector. However, the cannabis industry does not necessarily resemble other evolving start-up business areas. Unlike most other industries, cannabis continues to be a federally designated illegal controlled substance, while various states have legalized cannabis and planted a patchwork garden of cannabis statutes, regulations, and ethics advisory opinions. What’s a lawyer to do? Legal ethics questions abound! What type of legal assistance may a lawyer provide to a client involved in the cannabis industry? May a lawyer accept product or an interest in a cannabis business in lieu of fees? Will a lawyer who participates in a medical marijuana program or indulges in recreational cannabis face ethical repercussions? This course will explore the historical context of the cannabis debate, the legal ethics implications for lawyers seeking to represent cannabis clients, and the current state of the legal profession’s response to legal ethics questions posed by lawyers traipsing through the patchwork garden of state regulations.

    Restrictive Covenants: Legal Trends, and Negotiation and Drafting Tips

    4.8 (10 reviews)
    by Kristen Prinz
    Non-compete agreements shape the American employment landscape, affecting both employees and employers. Because these agreements prevent an employee from working within a particular industry for a defined time period, courts tend to closely examine these provisions. In recent years, many states have passed legislation to modify non-compete provisions in both employment agreements and business purchase agreements. Some states uphold non-compete agreements only when a legitimate business interest is at stake, while others have banned non-competes altogether. Certain states require employers to provide additional consideration or benefits to an employee to bind them by a non-compete. If employers are to adequately draft non-compete provisions, and if employees are to successfully negotiate such provisions, they must understand how the law is evolving in this area. Kristen Prinz, the Founder and Managing Partner of the Prinz Law Firm, P.C., will discuss best practices for drafting non-compete clauses from an employer’s perspective, and best practices to negotiate and handle non-compete clauses from an employee’s perspective.
