This presentation will shy away from more cutting edge topics, sometimes of fleeting importance and, instead, will re-center lawyers’ attention to what the presenter has proposed are the five core components providing the “recipe” for ethical lawyering. While limiting its scope to broad topics that are alliterative, this presentation will manage to discuss many more ethics rules than just five, including Model Rules 1.1, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 1.7-1.10, 1.15, 1.18, 3.3, 4.1, 7.1, and 8.4 among several others.

Have you ever been the target of bullying or bias or observed others being bullied in the practice of law? According to a 2019 study by the International Bar Association, a significant number of legal professionals worldwide have been subjected to bullying at work or observed others being bullied, bias based on gender, race, age, LGBTQ+ status, disability and other characteristics impact who is most likely to be targeted. Despite employer policies on diversity, inclusion, anti-harassment and anti-bullying, the problem persists. This program will equip individual attorneys with ethical strategies to deal with bullies effectively and increase civility within the profession.
Brand owners in the packaged food business often contract out many of their essential functions – from product development to manufacturing, sales, and distribution. This course introduces participants to several of the most common contracts that CPG food brands need, especially in their early stages. Lauren Handel of Handel Food Law LLC will provide background on important aspects of the food business that must be considered in crafting and negotiating contracts for brand owners. She also will explain key provisions of five common agreements: non-disclosure, product development, co-manufacturing, sales representation, and distribution.
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act -- otherwise known as CERCLA or Superfund – is the federal statute that provides a funding mechanism to clean up uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous waste and accident sites. In this course, Connie Sue Martin will lead you through the CERCLA liability framework, contribution and cost recovery, and the roles of key players such as EPA, states, and Indian tribes.
Many legal consumers are only familiar with traditional, full-scope legal representation. However, this is not practical or affordable for many, and perhaps even most, Americans. This leads many to decide to “go it alone” and represent themselves. However, some representation is almost always better than no representation at all. Offering flexible representation, also called unbundled, limited scope, or à la carte services, allows you to connect with legal consumers who may otherwise feel priced out of the legal market. During this hour long seminar, we will address what precisely “unbundled” and limited scope services are (and are not) and what benefits can be achieved not only to the consumer but also to you as an attorney in offering these options. We will also provide you with resources, from the relevant ethical rules to tips on how to identify appropriate candidates for unbundled or limited scope services.
In this course, we will cover the basics of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Attendees will gain a working knowledge of the FMLA and important terminology used in that statute. We will also review the process for notification, certification, and designation under the FMLA.
Our country’s criminal justice policies intersect with voting rights through felony disenfranchisement. Voting is a fundamental right and the cornerstone of democracy. Yet over 5 million U.S. citizens are denied the right to vote due to a previous conviction, even though many of them have returned to their communities or completed their full sentence. This CLE will first provide a definition of felony disenfranchisement and the process of rights restoration. We will then summarize felony disenfranchisement policies and their practical effect on our democracy. The course will then discuss case law on felony disenfranchisement and focus on the difficulty of protecting the voting rights of those with a prior conviction in federal courts. We will then turn to state court challenges to felony disenfranchisement and differing state policies on rights restoration. We will end with a discussion of developing litigation strategies, and opportunities for protecting the right to vote of citizens with a conviction through advocacy.
The changing reproductive health landscape has created confusion and fear among individuals identifying as female as to the privacy and security of their sensitive health data. Following the Dobbs decision, many women have abandoned their period tracking and female health technology (femtech) apps out of fear that their health data could be used to prosecute them for an abortion-related crime. This presentation (i) provides an overview of the shifting reproductive health landscape and privacy laws applicable to healthcare providers and femtech companies, (ii) describes how reproductive health data may be accessed and used by law enforcement officers, and (iii) provides suggestions for practical steps that femtech companies and healthcare providers can take now to help the women’s health industry regain consumer trust.
Disabled tenants have rights to reasonable accommodations throughout the United States. Failing to honor those rights can quickly cause a landlord, property manager, and real estate broker to face a six figure lawsuit. Now, the State of New York has stepped it up a notch by requiring landlords, property managers, and real estate brokers to provide a written notice to all tenants and prospective tenants about their rights. The notice explains which accommodations are available under law, how to request an accommodation, and how to bring a claim for discrimination if an accommmodation is wrongfully denied. This course will get you up to speed with the statutory and regulatory framework under which the NYS notice exists while offering you a full compliance protocol for your clients to follow. It will also show you how to leverage a defendant's failure to give the notice in a plaintiff's failure-to-accommodate discrimination case so that you can properly advise tenants who have faced discrimination.
Although lawyers do not receive formal training on how to assess capacity, they make capacity judgments on a regular basis. Lawyers should be familiar with the signs of “diminished capacity” that may be apparent when meeting with a client and how to address such a situation. Lawyers must be aware of the ethical guidelines for assessing capacity as well as the standards of capacity for specific legal transactions under state statutes and case law.
