What It Takes to be a Trial Lawyer If You’re Not a Man: The Ethical, Professional, and Personal Costs of Confronting Gender Bias in the Courtroom

Program Number: 2906 Presenter: Lara Bazelon

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** Today, women make up more than one half of all law school graduates. Yet they remain dramatically underrepresented at the top echelons of the profession. Two thirds of state and federal judges are men, as are 83 percent of elected prosecutors; less than one percent are women of color. In the majority of law firms, large and small, women make up only a fraction of the powerful inner circle: partners who bring in clients, lead litigation teams, and sit on powerful management and compensation committees. In the coveted position of first chair at trial, the number of women shrinks further. In this MCLE, law professor and trial lawyer Lara Bazelon explores the systemic gender bias exhibited by judges, opposing counsel, jurors, or the clients themselves that impedes women’s

Right of Publicity Dangers: Small Mistakes--$Millions of Costs

Program Number: 2883 Presenter: Rick Kurnit, Esq.

The movement in-house of marketing communications has left brands exposed to $millions of claims for use of their own materials. This webinar will guide you through the dangers and describe best practices. The California Appeals Court this month upheld millions of dollars awarded to a model whose photograph was used in advertising after the brand neglected to exercise its $4, 000 option to extend its right to use the model for another year. The marketing department thought the advertising agency handled such things, the National Brand, like so many today, had fired its ad agency and chosen not to replace it. With the materials you own being continually repurposed in many different ways by many different people, often without an outside agency involved, you need to know what you can do with what you own and how to handle these materials. Small projects and incidental uses of existing materials can result in

A FISA Primer- Everything You Didn’t Know, You Didn’t Know

Program Number: 2878 Presenter: George W. Croner, Esq.

Electronic surveillance represents the most important foreign intelligence collection tool available to the U.S. government. Correspondingly, the ability to surveil constitutes one of those activities most susceptible to abuse by a government against its citizens. For years, electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes was considered an exclusively Executive Branch authority, and every president from Franklin Roosevelt to Richard Nixon authorized its use. When serious abuses by U.S. intelligence agencies were revealed during congressional hearings held in the aftermath of Watergate, Congress reacted by passing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act which, for the first time, subjected foreign intelligence electronic surveillance conducted in the United States to a statutory regimen that included approval by a newly created Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Today, there is more discussion, and controversy, about FISA than at virtually any other time in its history. This program is going to discuss the evolution of the use

Confidentiality and Context in the Workplace

Program Number: 2875 Presenter: Dove A.E. Burns, Esq., Benjamin A. Waters, Esq.

Courts have struggled for decades to define and enforce reasonableness in the context of NDAs. However, the legal debate over NDAs has only now entered public debate due to disputes amongst notable figures like Omarosa or Stormy Daniels. Further complicating is that the enforceability of these agreements is also affected by the United States Constitution, state Constitutions, and other state laws, as well as practices and Regulations of the various government agencies. The complexities are only exacerbated when you look at different employment contexts. Context and tailoring is key to the creation of enforceable and effective NDA’s.

Mastering Bitcoin, Blockchain and Digital Currency Law

Program Number: 2873a Presenter: John Rafferty, Esq.

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are unique from other currencies in that they exist on a continuously growing, immutable database, that when linked together, form a blockchain. Cryptocurrencies are largely decentralized and as such, are subject to competing regulations. This raises some interesting legal issues, especially with regard to the recovery of lost assets. In 2018, individuals around the world are using hundreds of different cryptocurrencies to pay for coffee, new homes and even legal services. But blockchain-use cases are not limited just to cryptocurrency. Increasingly, blockchains are being used for supply-chain management, intellectual property, fraud detection, regulatory compliance, audits, data storage and even smart-contract creation.
