Overview of Construction Law - the Basics

 

Overview of Construction Law - the Basics

This course is designed to review basic contract provisions uniquely encountered with construction projects, such as provisions regarding “pre-bid inspections and liabilities imposed,“ “no-damage-for-delay,” “pay-to-be-paid,” and scheduling issues. The course will also address common contract provisions, but in the context of a construction project, such as indemnification and insurance, scope of work, issues with privity of contract and pass-through provisions, issues with fixed-fee and cost-plus projects, termination and abandonment, and damage limitations. In addition to expressed provisions, the course will cover implied terms, such as workmanship and code compliance. The course is designed to alert an attendee of the various contractual issues experienced with construction projects and how to generally address the issues when reviewing or preparing a construction contract or litigating the contract. The course will be beneficial for both the attorney who only periodically works with construction projects, as well as more experienced attorneys. Case law is cited in the materials to assist in identifying issues and their resolution.

by Jason Potter
Millions of uninsured people in the United States have the right to receive emergency medical care thanks to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). Signed into law by President Reagan in 1986 and still in force today, EMTALA provided the first limited federal right to health care regardless of ability to pay. In this survey of EMTALA, we dissect the “golden rule of the emergency room” and introduce the major statutory and regulatory mandates, as well as case law interpretations thereof. In that vein, we also cover hot-button issues and present some of the top compliance challenges for hospitals.

The Ethical Implications of Legalized Cannabis

by Jason Potter
Public support for legalized cannabis is at an all-time high, and at least 33 states have legalized it in some fashion. In light of the booming cannabis industry and the significant regulatory challenges that cannabis-related businesses face, the need for legal advice is industry-wide. However, giving cannabis-related legal advice can raise some hazy ethical issues for attorneys, due in part to the continued illegality of cannabis at the federal level. In this presentation, we will examine both the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and a selection of state rules and opinions as we work through the ethical implications for lawyers who don’t stay off the grass.
