Cocktail Party Law: Answering Questions in Social Situations

Austin – Nov 28, 2017 – Max's Wine Dive

We've all been there. Whether it's at a party, in an elevator, or among the produce at the supermarket, we run into acquaintances who start the conversation with "I have this friend ...."  Next thing you know, you are presented with what amounts to a law school hypothetical on a subject you haven't considered since, well ... law school. How can you answer these questions without inadvertently becoming your acquaintance's lawyer?  And how can you answer these seemingly simple questions without sounding like a fool?  And where can you learn those sorts of things while meeting some other attorneys in your area? Cocktail Party Law: Answering Questions in Social Situations is designed to help attorneys answer commonly asked questions about employment issues, bankruptcy, wills, real estate, immigration, and criminal law. Hosted in a casual setting, attendees hear from experienced practitioners about how to best answer these questions. more »
