Sovereign and Central Bank Digital Currency – Is Cash Still the King? (05/27/2020)

Program Number: 3079 Presenter: Joel Telpner, Esq., Mari Tomunen, Esq.

With the ease of using a mobile bank, one might forget that all current monetary systems are based on the fact that technically only physical bills and coins are legal tender. The need to build digital layers on top of this setup leads to inherent friction. Why is not money natively digital? After the rise of Bitcoin and other digital blockchain based assets, practically every central bank around the world is now exploring the potential risks and benefits of turning money digital. The attorneys in this program are helping countries to issue natively digital sovereign currencies. They discuss the reason and future of Central Bank Digital Currencies, different approaches that countries are taking, and the roadblocks that need to be overcome before this major shift in the theory and makeup of money can happen.

Demystifying Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies (05/07/2020)

Program Number: 3078 Presenter: David Kalat

In conventional usage, the term “hacking” generally refers to an unauthorized user gaining access to an electronic resource. Hackers use various means to steal, guess, calculate, or otherwise obtain credentials to access systems and data they are not allowed to access. When we talk about “hacking” a blockchain, however, this does not adequately or accurately describe what has happened and blinds us to understanding where the real risks lie in this new technology of distributed ledgers and crypto-assets. The high-profile, most destructive, and expensive “hacks” in blockchain environments actually represent *authorized* users misbehaving. In some cases, these are authorized users acting on their own behalf to exploit weaknesses in the system to their own gain at the expense of other users, in other cases these are authorized users who are misusing the trust placed in them by their customers. The key to protecting yourself against fraud in this new alien

Failure to comply with this new statute authorizes the Attorney General to obtain statutory damages and the actual damages to consumers.

Money at Work -- the Gender Pay Gap: Effective Strategies in the #MeToo Era (04/30/2020)

Program Number: 3076 Presenter: Kathleen Caminiti, Esq., Cheryl Pinarchick, Esq.

The topic of harassment, and sexual harassment in particular, has become an increasing concern for employers – not only in regard to their own personal behavior but also regarding the overall reputation of their organization as a harassment-free workplace. The #MeToo movement has heightened awareness of gender and power issues. However, an unintended consequence of the #MeToo movement had been risk of segregation of women professionals, a phenomenon that ultimately can lead to the denial of advancement opportunities and pay disparity. The purpose of this webinar is to educate employers about the existence of discriminatory compensation practices in the workplace and to think strategically about legal compliance and pay equality. We will explore the ramifications of gender segregation in the #MeToo era, provide an overview of current pay equity laws, and offer practical advice on how to identify and address implicit bias that can lead to potential gender discrimination and pay

What Attorneys Need to Know About the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (04/07/2020)

Program Number: 3071 Presenter: Michael Riela, Esq.

Small and mid-sized companies often find it difficult to use Chapter 11 to successfully reorganize and Chapter 11 forces distressed firms to incur significant professional fees, and the U.S. Bankruptcy Code imposes numerous administrative burdens on debtors. Congress recently addressed these problems by enacting the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (the “SBRA”), which became effective on February 19, 2020. The SBRA is designed to foster successful restructurings of small businesses, and thereby save jobs and preserve enterprise value. Among other things, the SBRA adds a new “Subchapter V” to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, which contain new tools to increase a small business debtor’s chances for a successful reorganization. During this webinar, participants will learn about the key features of new Subchapter V, as well as the potential benefits and drawbacks to filing a Subchapter V case. Participants will also learn about how the SBRA has modified existing law regarding actions to

The Conservative Case for Class Actions (03/10/2020)

Program Number: 3068 Presenter: Professor Brian Fitzpatrick, Esq.

In this program, Professor Fitzpatrick discusses his new book The Conservative Case for Class Actions (University of Chicago Press, 2019). Professor Fitzpatrick argues that conservatives and libertarians should prefer private enforcement of the law to the only viable alternative—more government—for the same reason they prefer other private sector solutions to problems. Although he thinks our class action system is not perfect, he gathers data to show that it is working much better than people think. At the end of this program, participants will: 1) understand the theoretical advantages and disadvantages of government versus private enforcement, 2) learn the data comparing government enforcement to class actions, 3) learn the data on how many class actions are meritless, how much attorneys are paid in class actions, and how class actions deter misconduct, and 4) understand class action legal doctrines and how they might be improved.

New regulations have recently been adopted or proposed in all of these areas, and the new rules could significantly affect the permitting and compliance requirements for a broad range of development plans, programs and projects that require a federal permit or authorization.

This presentation will discuss the new rules and the changes they represent, the implications for future interpretations and applications of these federal laws, and next steps, including litigation challenging the new rules. This is a rapidly changing area of the law, and this presentation will
