    A Holistic Approach to Representing Victims of Intimate Partner Violence

    4.8 (20 reviews)
    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.

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

    4.7 (13 reviews)
    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.

    Cannabis Conundrum: Weeding Among the Hazy Legal Ethics Lines

    4.7 (113 reviews)
    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.

    Cell Phone Forensics

    4.9 (41 reviews)
    The purpose of this class is to educate legal professionals on how cell phone forensic evidence is extracted from cell phones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Explanations will be given on what is in accordance with forensic best practices, and how this evidence is properly preserved. In addition, attendees will learn about the fragile nature of digital evidence, and the extent to which this information can be changed if not handled correctly. Attendees will learn the types of evidence that can be recovered from cell phones, including location-based information, messaging application data, voicemails, multimedia such as photos and videos, meta-data, and more. The different forensic artifacts will be explained in detail. Given the rising instances of fake text messages and call spoofing, a section of this class will explain how this is commonly done, even by people with little technical knowledge, and how an investigation is performed todetermine the authenticity of such evidence. Upon completion of this class, attendees will have a working knowledge of how cell phone forensic data collections are performed, the types of forensic artifacts that are recoverable, how data is authenticated, and how such evidence can be used for their purposes when working a case.

    Representing both the husband and wife in estate planning? Assisting with the divorce of your favorite friends?

    Dirty Litigation Tactics: How To Deal With The Rambo Litigator image

    Dirty Litigation Tactics: How To Deal With The Rambo Litigator

    4.5 (28 reviews)
    From graduation day of law school to the retirement party, no lawyer can avoid encountering the "Rambo"-type lawyer who, both in litigation and out, uses aggressive and oftentimes unethical behavior to advance their client's cause. Are these types of dirty-tactic attorneys unavoidable? Can they be sympathized with, effectively battled, or at least partially understood? In this seminar, we approach all those goals in the entertaining format of positing a look at them through A Natural History of the North American Silver-Tongued Rambo Litigator (Rambus litigatus), and we closely examine their cultural and jurisprudential origins; their "anatomy and physiology"; their development, range, and distribution; tool use; fighting behaviors; and finally ponder some proposals for their potential conservation or extinction.

    Doing More in Less Time For Lawyers

    4.8 (53 reviews)
    Have you ever felt frustrated by technology? Or, have you ever wondered how to be more productive? Often, you can get more done in less time if you improve your workflow, and if you learn how to use technology more efficiently. Many lawyers and staff struggle with these concepts, in large part because they were never trained how to do the programs their offices rely on. This program, based on presenter Dan Siegel’s popular book, How to Do More in Less Time, demonstrates practical, easy-to-use and implement ways for attorneys and busy professionals to use technology to be more effective – doing so in less time than through traditional methods. The program will explain how to customize and take better advantage of the technology already in use in law offices.
    eDiscovery Primer: What You Need To Know And Why image

    eDiscovery Primer: What You Need To Know And Why

    4.7 (30 reviews)
    Electronic evidence necessarily touches every case. Even a simple rear end car accident case is going to have potentially relevant electronic evidence on the drivers’ cell phones. Not only is a basic understanding of electronic discovery (eDiscovery) critical for effectively requesting and finding key evidence, but it is also mandated under an attorney’s duty of competence. The nuances of eDiscovery rules may very from state to state, but best practices for dealing with electronically stored information (ESI) are universal. The truth is, the key evidence in most cases is electronic. Finding that piece of evidence requires knowing what to ask for and the right tools to find the needle in the haystack. In this CLE course, attorney and eDiscovery specialist Aaron Cronan will help answer the common questions he encounters while advising litigators who finally decide to go after electronic evidence. He will demystify the seeming incomprehensible process of requesting, compelling, receiving and searching electronic evidence. He will discuss eDiscovery techniques to increase negotiating leverage early in the discovery process, and how to spot and defeat common dilatory tactics. This session will include examples from actual cases and real experiences to illustrate real-world application and raise the level of familiarity and comfort with eDiscovery.

    Education Rights of Homeless Children and Youth

    4.8 (25 reviews)
    The federal Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (“McKinney-Vento”) guarantees homeless children and youth access to free, appropriate public education and the right to educational continuity and stability. With a global pandemic that has put many students at risk of housing instability and displacement, lawyers can play an important role in addressing their legal needs through McKinney-Vento. States and school districts are required under this federal law to review and revise laws, policies, regulations, and practices that may act as a barrier to the education of homeless children and youth. This course provides an overview of the educational rights of homeless children and youth and how lawyers can help them navigate and enforce these legal rights and ensure compliance of the law. Participants will learn the legal considerations when working with the educational rights of homeless students.

    Employee Handbook Do's & Dont's image

    Employee Handbook Do's & Dont's

    4.8 (36 reviews)
    Employers must comply with a litany of federal, state and local laws which govern virtually every aspect of the employer-employee relationship. Most employers wish to communicate the steps they will take to comply with the law in an employee handbook. This crucial document is responsible for distilling a variety of complex and constantly-changing legal topics into one easy-to-read guidebook for employees, and managers. We introduce a variety of concepts which counsel preparing these critical documents should be aware of, and how handbooks can be used as both a sword and a shield later in litigation. In doing so, we highlight a number of hot topics in the employment law space, including teleworking, medical and adult-use cannabis, and paid sick leave laws.

Although the course is basically an ethics course, ideas on how to better represent a client in litigation and comply with the rules will be discussed.

    From a Click to a Contract - Formation and Enforcement of Agreements in the Digital Age

    4.7 (37 reviews)
    Electronic communications and e-signatures have amplified the speed and number of contracts entered into everyday. The rapid changes in technology have also imposed rapid changes on a legal system that is traditionally slow to adapt - the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act has been implemented in almost every state for close to 20 years, yet many attorneys still insist on printing, signing and scanning signature pages. In this CLE course, attorney and eDiscovery specialist Aaron Cronan will cover some of the most important implications for contract formation and enforcement in the digital age. He will focus on a legislation overview, electronic signatures, Statute of Frauds, UCC, assent of the parties, Browser/Clickwrap, and best practices. This session will include examples and case law from across the county to identity trends and traps.

    4.7 (44 reviews)
    Mental health issues and substance use disorders can impact any law student, attorney or judge regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, orientation of socioeconomic status. But no matter the background, the legal profession seems to suffer in silence. Why? Stigma – the cultural prejudice and discrimination that labels an individual as defective or weak has the power to create a reluctance to speak about the issues and be a barrier to seeking treatment.

Throughout the presentation, the speaker will focus on several different “life stages” of an attorney and how stigma affects each group and identify best practices to conquer stigma in the legal community.

    Human Trafficking Prevention & Mitigation: Counseling Corporate Clients

    4.6 (40 reviews)
    Human trafficking knows no limits, and this predatory crime plagues rural, suburban, and urban communities in the United States and throughout the world. Traffickers deprive their victims of their identity, self-worth, autonomy, and freedom through force, intimidation, and false promises. This continuing legal education course will review the various federal laws protecting child and adult human trafficking victims. This course will review two scenarios that in-house or external counsel may encounter when advising businesses and health systems: (1) drafting human resources and procurement policies that effectively prohibit human trafficking activities (e.g., avoiding suppliers that violate human rights laws by engaging in labor trafficking activities, prohibiting employees from viewing or receiving child or trafficked pornographic materials on company or personal devices on work time, and prohibiting employees from purchasing sexual activities while traveling out of state or to a different country for work), and (2) advising a health system on devising a community-wide protocol and health system policy to respond to and aid victims of human trafficking.

    Introduction to Cybersquatting - What the Heck Is It & How Do You Prevail at It?

    4.7 (38 reviews)
    Before the Internet, there was no such thing as cybersquatting. But once the Internet came into existence, domain-name disputes soon followed. Although cybersquatting does not fit into the traditional trademark paradigm, in 1999 Congress passed The Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act ("ACPA"), 15 U.S.C. 1125(d), and it became part of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1051 et seq., which is the primary federal trademark statute in the United States. The ACPA established a legal recourse for entities who are the victims of others registering, trafficking in, or using a domain name that is confusingly similar to, or dilutive of, an entity's trademark or a person's name. In this "Introduction to Cybersquatting", attorneys learn the origins and history of cybersquatting, as well as the elements of the cause of action. Participants will also analyze several cases in which courts have addressed cybersquatting at various stages of litigation.

Actual case examples are utilized to illustrate the usefulness of these forensic artifacts in litigation. Attorneys will also learn the difference between an information technology expert and a digital forensics expert, with case examples illustrating the problematic outcomes of having information technology experts attempting to testify about digital forensics.

    Restrictive Covenants: Legal Trends, and Negotiation and Drafting Tips

    4.8 (70 reviews)
    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.

    In today’s complex world of federal procurement, many times the government’s desired “solution” cannot always be met by one contractor. Teaming, subcontracting and the utilization of contractors that make up the federal supply chain can become a necessity for a winning bid in response to a solicitation. Managing those relationships can be challenging but also critically important. The ultimate success or failure of contract performance likely will depend not only on the performance of a federal prime contractor, but also the performance of the entire team of subcontractors and other supply chain contractors. In this course, we will explore a wide range of federal supply chain issues including basic compliance issues related to the scope of subcontracting and flowdown obligations to more complex issues concerning Contractor Purchasing System Reviews (CPSRs) and ever-evolving cybersecurity requirements that can affect the entire supply chain. We will also suggest strategies for establishing and maintaining a fully compliant supply chain.
