While the First Amendment is most commonly associated with "free speech,” there are five distinct freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment: freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of assembly, freedom to petition the government for redress of grievances, and the prohibition of an establishment of a state religion in America. These limitations on government power over individual expression and association stand at the core of the American conception civil liberties, to such an extent that we often disregard them in our day to day lives. In this course, the celebrated retired civil rights attorney Samuel B. Cohen will explore the historical purposes and present applications of the First Amendment, showing the evolution of original concepts and the ways the law has adapted to meet new concerns in light of First Amendment rights. He will provide guidance for identifying and pleading First Amendment issues in litigation, as well as talking points for discussing the First Amendment with non-lawyers.

Welcome to NFL Contract Advisors – “So You Want To Be An Agent…” A big part of sports law is getting agents ready for the obligations of managing high-profile clients. And that’s where lawyers come in. NFL Contract Advisors covers NFLPA certification requirements, agent eligibility, standards of conduct and prohibited actions, key points of agent-player contracts and player-team contracts, and the NFL’s personal conduct policy. And most importantly, we’ll look at some recent episodes of “bad client behavior” in the NFL (aka – The 3 AM Phone Call). Stories include a mercurial QB skipping a game to party (in disguise) in Las Vegas, a star wide receiver allegedly throwing furniture off a 14th floor Florida condo balcony, the league’s highest-paid player bankrolling a dog fighting operation, and of course…“DeflateGate.”

On June 15, 2020, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) issued a landmark decision regarding the scope of protections afforded under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, for gay, lesbian and transgender employees in a trio of consolidated cases: Bostock v. Clayton County, GA., Altitude Express, Inc. v. Zarda and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission et al., 140 S.Ct. 1731, 2020 U.S. LEXIS 3252 (Jun. 15, 2020) (consolidating No. 17-1618 (Bostock), No. 17-1623 (Zarda) and No. 18-107 (R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes). In a 6-3 decision authored by Justice Neil Gorsuch, SCOTUS found that the plain meaning of Title VII’s prohibition making it illegal for an employer to discriminate against an individual employee “because of such individual’s . . . sex” [42 U.S.C. §2000e-2(a)(1)], was sufficiently broad to prohibit an employee from being discharged merely for being gay or transgendered. Id. at 1739. As a result of that decision, and prior directives from the Department of Labor (“DOL”), and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), federal law bars discrimination and harassment on the basis of sex to protect employees and applicants for employment from being harassed, denied employment or promotion, or otherwise subject to adverse treatment because they do not conform to societal gender expectations. This program will help employers to make sure that their workplace conforms to federal law and provides a safe space for employees to express their gender identity.
The retainer agreement is an often neglected tool to meet our ethical obligations to our clients while simultaneously managing and reducing professional risks inherent in the practice of law. The retainer agreement touches on virtually every kind of private practice and directly addresses the two greatest sources of professional risk to attorneys – ethical obligations and legal duties to clients. This course explores the basics of the retainer agreement along with corresponding ethical considerations in the context of every day professional risks lawyers face through a review of the ABA’s model rules, sample retainers and ethics opinions. The “living” retainer agreement as a risk management device and best practice tool, including an overview of paralleling ethical considerations will be explored, along with how to develop a firm-wide retainer agreement plan.
Amidst a pandemic quickly turning endemic, people are learning the value and power of the virtual world, from education to work to healthcare. A doctor on vacation in Hawaii conducts a follow-up appointment with her 83-year-old cancer patient in New York City while a Florida Cardiologist checks in to see why his patient in Nevada has such a low heart rate at the moment. These are just some of the exciting ways that telehealth can benefit patients and providers, but what are the rules in this fast-changing environment? This course will provide you with the tools you need to advise your clients on the legal and regulatory aspects of telehealth from both a federal and state perspective.
In August 2021, The Washington Post released a transcript of a February 2018 interview in which Rudy Giuliani told federal agents it was permissible to “throw a fake” during an electoral campaign. Just weeks before that transcript became public, Giuliani was suspended from the practice of law in New York for baselessly asserting that thousands of felons and dead people voted during the 2020 presidential election and that Georgia voting machines had been manipulated. This program will examine the ethics rules implicated by Giuliani’s recent conduct—ABA Rules 3.3, 4.1, and 8.4—and provide guidance on how to avoid suffering Rudy’s fate.
I once heard that the legal profession is like a pie-eating contest where the prize is more pie. As lawyers, the more work that you get done, the more pie, or work, that you are assigned. If young lawyers do not learn how to manage their time and case load effectively, this can be a source of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm throughout their entire careers. This presentation discusses what time management is, why lawyers should care about time management and discusses various methods and techniques lawyers can use to get organized. This course will discuss why multi-tasking is not effective, why procrastination seems so satisfying in the moment, and how to break the habit loops that can keep lawyers stuck. By the end of this presentation, the participants will have several tools to utilize to become more productive and manage their legal practice and lives more effectively.
As more and more physicians and other healthcare practitioners enter the workforce, employers, whether they are hospitals, clinics or private practices, are updating their employment contracts to be more restrictive against practitioners. It is important when reviewing these contracts, not only to confirm that the terms of the offer are correctly included within the contract, but that practitioners will not be prevented from practicing within their field and/or within a reasonable area should their employment be terminated. In order to negotiate on their behalf, you need to understand the language utilized within the industry, including HIPAA, billing procedures, payment structures and restrictive covenants. This course will provide you with an overview of the key aspects, clauses and terms common to healthcare employment agreements. You’ll have a better understanding of whether the contract terms are reasonable in their scope, whether practitioners will have the ability to continue to provide services should they leave the employment and how to identify missing language that should be included in order to protect the practitioner.
