|Estate Planning for the Modern Family||
In this on-demand webinar, we will discuss drafting considerations for the modern family. Drug usage, failed careers, second marriages, and children who “still live at home” are part of the modern family. How does one draft to avoid unintended consequences when these circumstances arise? How does one draft efficiently without a crystal ball into the future? We will talk about how to avoid fiduciary disputes that often result from these circumstances. Every document we draft will eventually be administered and affect people in their everyday lives.
|Ethical Use of Social Media in Law Practice||
In 2018, the import of social media as a transformative technological, cultural, and political phenomenon is no longer in dispute. Nor has the law been immune from its impact. Indeed, under various state professional codes, lawyers are subject to an ongoing duty of competence to keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with technology such as social media. Social media can be a valuable investigatory and marketing tool for legal professionals. Its use can also pose risks to legal professionals and their clients.
|Ethics & Issues in Title IX Cases with Endless Loose Ends||
Title IX cases based on allegations of sexual assault and/or harassment have ethical, privacy, and discovery issues that are unlike most other litigation.

|Ethics & Technology in the Workplace||
Technology has become an essential part of a modern law practice. It is commonly used to do everyday tasks such as sending communication to clients and opposing counsel, receiving, sending, and storing client documents, and even filing documents with the courts. In the digital age we now live and work in, it is more important than ever to understand how technology should be used competently per the Rules of Professional Conduct and know what safe guards should be in place to protect client confidences.
|Ethics and the Law||
Ethics and the Law focuses on the law and the ethical issues that arise when laws provide a certain outcome that may not be fair, ethical or necessarily the “right thing.” We analyze and debate some key Constitutional and State Court Cases that deal with ethical issues outside of the law. Specifically, discussion includes the ethics attorneys and paralegals face with the Attorney/Client Privilege, 4th Amendment’s Search and Seizure, 5th Amendment’s Due Process, 8th Amendment’s Cruel and Unusual Punishment, 1st Amendment’s Right to Free Speech, and the Right to Privacy.
