Session 5:

Financial Powers of Attorney: Do You Want Fries With That Will? (Aug 2019)

Drafting a statutory durable power of attorney used to be simple: You ask a couple questions, zap out the form, and bring it to the will signing ceremony with all the other documents. But these days we have to discuss compensation, co-agents, and hot powers. Even the location of the signing matters now. Can we design a form that works for all clients?

Pro Bono Collaborations with Outside Counsel: The New Networking (Oct 2019)

With both in-house counsel and outside firms wanting to give back to their communities and to develop their relationships with each other, pro bono truly is the new networking. Learn how in-house counsel and outside firms can collaborate, including best practices and overcoming fears of lack of subject-matter knowledge, on pro bono projects from legal advice clinics to direct representation, and how these collaborations help bridge the “justice gap.”
