Session 1: Greed...for Lack of a Better Word...is[n't] Good - Using a series of case studies, explore the ethical obligations and fiduciary duties owed by lawyers to clients and how the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure are implicated in each.

Session 2: Everyday Strategies for Avoiding Professional Misconduct Explore easy, common sense techniques that you can employ in your law practice to steer clear of legal malpractice, breaches of fiduciary duty, and findings of professional misconduct. A timely and important ethics tune-up that you won’t want to miss.

Session 3: The Gig Economy: An Overview Explore the effects of the sharing economy on the traditional employment model as companies use technology to connect providers and end-users in novel ways and individual providers increasingly view themselves as entrepreneurs with their own business aspirations. Specific topics include the scope of the limitations of the employee/contractor classification system, the use of arbitration agreements as a response to judicial second-guessing, the scope of an employee’s fiduciary duty, the ownership of employee inventions, and some of the potential consequences associated with replacing the traditional employment model with individually-defined, market-driven, peer-to-peer business relationships.

Session 4: Six (or More) Techniques for Readable, Persuasive Sentences - Sentence-level techniques that can help legal writers create readable, persuasive sentences. Learn to recognize, describe, and appropriately use or avoid techniques including length, subordination, dangling elements, nominalizations, correlative conjunctions, compound prepositions, and more.
