Session 1: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Legal and Ethical Considerations - How can people help AI to avoid picking up bad habits or worse, perpetuating discrimination? AI and ML are transforming people’s daily lives, but at the same time raise legal and ethical concerns like bias and discrimination, fairness, IP ownership, and data rights and privacy. This panel discusses real-world examples of such concerns, the role AI and ML systems may play, and the associated legal implications. Session 2: Prudently Picking Your E-Discovery Team: Vendors, Forensics Experts, and More Session 3: Storytelling and Themes - The power of a simple story, it can transform the room, transform your audience, transform you. Session 4:  A Conversation with Brittany K. Barnett: Attorney, Author, and Entrepreneur - Hear attorney, author, and entreprenuer, Brittany K. Barnett, discuss her experience and advice for others as a founder of two nonprofit organizations, as pro bono counsel representing clients incarcerated in federal prison, and as founder of social enterprises devoted to providing supports and resources to formerly incarcertated individuals.  Session 5: Fraud Is Now Legal in Texas (for Some People) - Three Texas intermediate appellate courts have held that corporate actors—directors, officers, managers, shareholders, and probably common employees and agents—are immune from personal liability for the fraud and misrepresentation these actors commit as long as the deceit relates to or arises from a contractual obligation of the corporation. Two and maybe three Texas appellate courts have rejected this immunity, and federal courts have also split. Courts adopting immunity claim the authority of a statute, but this immunity cannot be justified by the statute's language or history, and adopting it creates (probably unnoticed) results that confirm the legislature never intended it.

    Very educational. Scared now of ransomware and hacking! He was great, although there was an echo on my video player for him. Paying the Family Caregiver seemed more of a political statement than an informative session. The speaker on teacher/student relations needs to work on her "ummms" but otherwise informative.

    on point and delivered effectively

    The supporting materials for "too many entities" was lacking. The real estate fixes was an excellent program. Disaster Planning was a bit more general, but having rebuilt my practice after Harvey in Rockport, my knowledge is a bit more in depth in some areas. I also was on the State Bar FEMA committee back when we had one in the mid 1990s. Learned a lot from the tornado in Fort Worth and the Houston floods.
