This program will equip individual attorneys with ethical strategies to deal with bullies effectively and increase civility within the profession.

Unfortunately, the uniqueness of social security disability law scares many new and curious legal practitioners away. A non-adversarial process lacking in both rules of evidence and rules of procedure, and with a unique government-regulated fee process, it can be both intimidating and confusing for newbies. This program, presented by national industry leader Michael Liner, will provide an overview of the medical and non-medical eligibility requirements of the Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. The nonmedical criteria covered for will include quarters of coverage, insured status, as well as income and resource rules.

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.
According to the ABA, women make up approximately 37% of the legal profession. Yet, research indicates that female lawyers are much more likely to suffer from mental distress and contemplate leaving the profession. Struggles with earning less, decreased advancement opportunities and pressure to choose between family and career, are only a few root causes behind the mental health crisis women lawyers are experiencing. This unique course offers neuroscience nutrition and natural health strategies designed to help women thrive. Learn emotion regulating tools that can help us maximize our mindset for improved outcomes and discover self-care concepts every woman can incorporate for professional wellness.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the workplace for lawyers and law firms. The pandemic brought the workforce to a halt in early 2020. Suddenly, law firms, among other businesses, were required to implement technology that allowed attorneys and support staff to work remotely. Two years later, many lawyers have returned to the office and members of the judiciary have returned to the courthouses. However, some have remained at home or enjoyed a hybrid work environment. The impact on our clients, firm culture, firm finances, and our collective mental health will be long lasting.

With the acceleration of the globalization of business over the last 20 years, alliances between companies have become commonplace.

The last four years have been a watershed moment in amateur college sports. From the possibility of losing eligibility for pursuing endorsement offers in 2019 to signing multi-million dollar deals in 2022 this is a new era for student-athletes. Sports lawyers will learn about how we got here and how the intersection of NIL deals, the NCAA Transfer Portal & Boosters have changed the college sports landscape. And we know this much…where we are now and what is allowed or not allowed today will change rapidly and frequently. It will be critical for lawyers to stay up to date as the NCAA, federal legislators and states continue to jockey for position in controlling the direction of college sports.
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.
When we think of criminal antitrust enforcement, we often think of monopolies and widespread price-fixing schemes by behemoth-sized companies. However, over the last few years, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division has become increasingly aggressive, particularly as it relates to alleged antitrust violations by employers of all sizes in the labor market. In this discussion of the DOJ’s renewed antitrust enforcement efforts, we will focus on recent cases involving wage fixing, no poach, and non-solicit agreements. Our presenters, who served as defense counsel in the DOJ’s first-ever criminal wage fixing case, will also share lessons that they and their colleagues have learned trying cases against the DOJ’s [markedly more aggressive] Antitrust Division.
