Session 1:

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: What the ADA, FHA and Other Laws Say About Animals and Their Owners (May 2019)

With requests for accommodations for service animals and the like, learn how different laws cover such accommodations before referring your client to a specialist. This presentation outlines the ADA, FHA and the Air Carrier Access Actin in terms of the places covered by each.  It discusses the difference between a “service animal” and every other kind of beast, and what the ADA vs. the FHA requires and what it permits in terms of verification of a need for the animal, and it also explores the rapidly developing law of what the ACAA requires and permits.

Have Sea Squirts Invaded Your Contract? Avoiding the Mindless Use of So-Called “Market” Terms You May or May Not Understand (Oct 2018)

It is said that transactional lawyers only learn to practice law after they graduate from law school, and it is true that there have traditionally been few offerings in the “how” of practicing transactional law in law school. But it is also true that many practicing transactional lawyers believe they no longer need to read cases to practice, and instead rely upon forms handed down to them by their mentors. Explore some of the “encrusted boilerplate” often contained in form agreements many transactional lawyers use, without any conception of what some of this encrusted boilerplate actually means, as interpreted by the courts in recent case law.

Session 3:

That's All the News for Today. Stay Ethical, Austin! (Feb 2019)

In recent years, the news has highlighted ethics issues relating to conflicts of interest, confidentiality, the use of social media, supervision of non‑lawyers, and other topics.  This panel will use factual scenarios to discuss the requirements and lessons of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, including Rules 1.6, 1.7, 5.3, and 7.1 and to consider practical ways to identify and avoid ethical pitfalls. Some scenarios are ripped from current headlines; others are conceptualizations of problems worth avoiding.
