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

Program Number: 2904 Presenter: Elizabeth G. Litten, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** According to a recent IBM survey, nearly two-thirds of consumers are more concerned about a breach of their private data than they are about going to war. Companies of all types and sizes collect and maintain customer data, and the customer assumes and expects that the company will protect their data and will not use, store, or share it in a way that puts them at risk. Today, a company should put as much effort into defending and protecting its customer data as it puts into defending and protecting its proprietary data and trade secrets, since breach, loss, or misuse will, at the very least, erode customer trust and the company’s reputation.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** For years, e-mail has been both a vital communications tool and a growing liability for many organizations.

And with the advent of technology platforms that allow for more sophisticated indexing and analysis of data, including Microsoft 365, cleaning-up historical e-mail and developing processes that leverage new technology will be transformative for e-mail risk management. This program will review strategies for managing the risks associated with e-mail, including retention, Records categorization, legal hold implementation, auto-disposal, and centralization and will review case studies on: (i) the use of record classification technology to categorize 1.5 billion e-mail messages; (

In addressing medical marijuana, the program will touch upon the impact medical marijuana is having in the workplace from both the employee and employer perspective. The medical marijuana portion will focus on Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act.

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

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** 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,

Program Number: 2877 Presenter: Kenneth E. Sharperson, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** Corporations are selecting law firms that have active diversity and inclusion initiatives, and are working less with law firms that do not have verifiable programs enhancing the diversity of their law firms. In fact, Hewlett Packard (HP) states that they may withhold up to 10 percent of invoiced fees for failure to meet HP’s diversity standards. Specifically, HP requires firms to “field (i) at least one diverse firm relationship partner, regularly engaged with HP on billing and staffing issues; or (ii) at least one woman and one racially/ethnically diverse attorney, each performing or managing at least 10% of the billable hours worked on HP matters.” In order to obtain work from larger companies that support increased diversity, many law firms have created diversity initiatives in order to meet

Confidentiality and Context in the Workplace

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

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** 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.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** 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.
