In 2012, 47% of law degrees were awarded to women, and women held 45% of the associate positions. Yet, only 4% of the managing partners in law firms across the United States were women. lthough the legal profession has some of the most progressive policies on the books, including lengthy maternity leaves and flex time schedules, the culture of the profession has yet to fully embrace the concepts. So we are left with the question: how do we remove this “maternal wall bias” from the legal profess

Additionally, this presentation outlines strategies for drafting engagement letters that accurately describe the scope of the attorney-client relationship.

Most multi-member LLCs, general partnerships and limited partnerships are taxable as partnerships under Subchapter K of the Internal Revenue Code. Partnership taxation provides these entities with unique federal tax advantages but also with significant tax risks. Even if you do not provide tax advice to your clients, you should have a basic understanding of partnership tax opportunities and risks in drafting partnership agreements for these entities and in handling transactions in which they are involved.

There have always been high-profile cases of sexual harassment and sexual assault involving entertainers and politicians. To those out of the loop they seemed like one-off cases of misbehavior, sleaze, or violent criminal conduct. People in the loop knew better. It was systemic and considered business as usual. Allegations were dealt with quietly or ignored. Women were told that speaking out meant getting out of the business. But the predatory behavior alleged against movie producer Harvey Weinstein broke the dam. The allegations brought against him were quickly followed by allegations against others in the entertainment industry which were quickly followed by allegations against a string of politicians and news professionals. Legends and heroes fell, one after the other, in seemingly daily reports of details that went from bad to worse. What is the culture like in your organization?

The recent wave of high-profile sexual harassment allegations in the news and the increasing number of people telling their workplace harassment stories on social media make it clear that employers, boards of directors, and even your own firm must develop effective policies addressing harassment and take proactive measures to prevent it in the first place. Whether you are advising employers, serving on a board of directors or reviewing your own firm's policies you need to know what steps to take to effectively respond to serious allegations. Sexual harassment allegations can result in costly and damaging lawsuits for your clients. Now more than ever, employers need comprehensive policies and clear reporting procedures, including education on sexual harassment awareness and prevention detailing what is and is not appropriate, to create a healthy workplace and reduce exposure to litigation.

Who owns the AI-generated information when legal representation ends? This program will provide you with a practical guide to the substantial ethical issues arising from increasing use of AI in today’s law practice.
