After being explained the facts of a real case, the attorney will be presented with a deal. Should the attorney take the deal … or take his or her chance at trial? We will cover inappropriate contact with jurors, fist fighting judges, lying attorneys, inappropriate romantic interludes with clients, substance abuse, and much more.

Course Description:

Everyone has heard the funny quip that grammar kills: there is a huge difference between “let’s eat, grandma” and “let’s eat grandma!” In the same way, poor grammar can kill your legal career. Bad grammar tips the court off that your research is subpar, your case is weak and details bore you. This class, for all attorneys, looks at common grammar mistakes and the best writing practices.

Everyone loves a good story, including courts! This class, for all attorneys but especially for those communicating with courts, explores how the art of storytelling can be accomplished in your complaints, pleadings and memos.  You won’t ever rush through a statement of facts section again after taking this class!  The goal? To make your legal writing into a real page turner that the court won’t be able to set down.

Course Description:

Lawyers, liars, and lunatics! This class is part one of a two part series focusing on why some people (lunatics) think that lawyers have a problem with lying. We go to the top of our profession – good ol’ Honest Abe – to see what he has to say about honesty in the legal profession. Do we have a problem with honesty? And if so, what can we do to fix it? In this class, we look at the various model rules requiring honest legal practices, such as 3.3, 4.1, 7.1 and 8.4, and then look at case examples where attorneys have been disciplined for dishonest activities. And of course, we end by vowing to not do likewise.

Course Description:

This class is for all attorneys who experience stress and have considered packing it all in and joining a cruise ship as wait staff, in other words, all attorneys. The legal career is demanding, and many attorneys struggle coping with the stress. A recent survey showed that 80% of attorneys, if they had it to go over again, would pick a different profession. This class provides real help to attorneys in managing their stress. The idea is to become unplugged from the daily grinds and routines, if even for a brief moment, so that you can become plugged in to what really matters. This class teaches mindfulness techniques to help lawyers thrive not only in their practice, but their lives as well.

Course Description:

You don’t have to be a long-in-the-tooth lawyer to know that alcohol is a persistent, pervasive problem for legal practitioners. It is a sobering fact that lawyers suffer from alcohol abuse problems at a rate three times the general population! While we can all guess as to why this is the case (crazy clients/unrealistic partnership demands/court deadlines), everyone agrees that help is needed. And help is available. This class is for all attorneys and focuses on the perils, both professionally and personally, from substance abuse. Specifically, this class goes over Model Rules 1.1, 1.6, 5.1, 8.3 case examples where attorneys have been disciplined for violating these rules. If the legal profession were Hollywood, there are Hallmark-Christmas stories, comedies and unfortunately, tragedies. We will cover them all. Our purposes are (1) to help attorneys self-identify any potential problems and (2) to tell those who need it that help is available.

Course Description:

Can any area of the law be more complicated than Campaign Finance? The landmark decision in campaign finance, Buckley v. Valeo, is 294 pages long. That’s a textbook, not a court decision! This class seeks to obtain the impossible: make campaign finance law seem simple, concise and non-life threatening! To that end, we explore the history of corruption in politics, the efforts to curb that corruption, and what the Court thinks of those efforts. Along the way, we will discuss the landmark Supreme Court campaign finance cases of Buckley v. Valeo, Citizens United v. FEC, McCutcheon v. FEC, and Arizona Free Enterprise Club v. Bennett. By the end of this class, you will know the distinction between expenditures and contributions, candidates and measures, and why you avoid campaign finance like holiday fruit cake.

Course Description:

If David Letterman did a countdown of the Top Ten Amendments, the right to religion would come in at the top. Not only is it in the First Amendment, it’s the first right in the First Amendment! And the Court has been busy of late in addressing religious rights in America. The Court has covered legislative prayer, prisoner’s religious rights, corporate religion, and religion in the workplace. We will examine the First Amendment’s religion clauses, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Person’s Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the religious rights under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

Course Description:

When it comes to searching and seizing, this Court has been busy defining the parameters of proper police conduct! Does a cop need to get a warrant to poke a needle in a person to get his blood alcohol content, or do exigent circumstances always exist in DUI cases to prevent the destruction of evidence? What about cell phones? Can a cop look through all of the selfies you have taken upon arrest as a search incident to such arrest? You have to admit, this might make law enforcement’s job a little bit more enjoyable … not to mention successful! What about dogs? Are they required to take an oath now before testifying in court? Well, this class looks at the recent trends of the Court in dealing with the Fourth Amendment, including Missouri v. McNeely, 133 S.Ct. 1552 (2013), Riley v. California, 134 S.Ct. 2473 (2014), Maryland v King, Florida v. Harris, 133 S.Ct. 1050 (1013), Kentucky v King, 131 S.Ct. 1849, Heien v. North Carolina and United States v. Jones. So before searching and seizing, tune in to what the Nine has to say.

Course Description:

Everyone’s favorite amendment! Everyone loves to take the Fifth! Whether it be in court to prevent self incrimination, or at home to avoid the stare of family members who are PO’ed that you took the last brownie, people are using this amendment at an alarming rate! So this class looks at recent Supreme Court cases dealing with the Fifth Amendment, including Salinas v. Texas, 133 S.Ct. 2174 (2013), White v. Woodall, 134 S.Ct. 1697 (2014), Kansas v. Cheever, 134 S. Ct. 596 (2013), Evans v. Michigan, 568 U.S. ___ (2013), Perry v. New Hampshire, 132 S.Ct. 716 (2012) and J. D. B. v. North Carolina, 131 S. Ct. 2394 (2011). In one particularly ironic case, it deals with whether a person can claim the right to remain silent by … being silent. Turns out you can’t!

Course Description:

No, this class does not deal with the burning issue of whether completing all of your CLE hours in one day should be considered cruel and unusual punishment. That’s your own fault! But this class does look into recent Supreme Court case dealing with the 8th Amendment, including Hall v. Florida, 134 S.Ct. 1986 (2014), Miller v. Alabama, 132 S.Ct. 2455 (2012), GLossip v. Gross, 135 S.Ct. 2726 (2015), and Kansas v. Gleason and Kansas v. Carr. Last term, Justice Breyer opined in a dissenting opinion that maybe it’s time for the Court to jettison the practice and call it cruel and unusual. So tune in to see what the Nine are saying about this amendment.

Course Description:

These nine justices are our legal super heroes! And their holdings are revered throughout the land! Faster than a congressional amendment, more powerful than an executive act, able to leap tall precedents with a single bound, it’s the Nine! Even with one narrow 5-4 decision, this court can radically change the scope of the American jurisprudence with a single decision. And so … it would behoove an attorney to know the recent landmark cases that are making such legal waves. And this class will do just that. This class is a review of recent landmark Supreme Court cases, the rationale for such decisions, and what the future will look like for this particular area of the law. Whether it pertains to changing the definition of marriage, or the Affordable Care Tax, these Nine have been busy!

This class is part one of a two part series on the law behind the headlines. Is spilling coffee really the equivalent of winning the litigation lottery? Since the sitcom Seinfeld can be about nothing, does a lawsuit against Jerry Seinfeld have to be about something? Several notable cases have made headlines recently, such as the McDonalds hot coffee case, Hobby Lobby’s fight against the Affordable Care Tax, and Constanza v. Seinfeld. This class, for the general practitioner and any lawyer with a facebook account, examines the law behind the laughs. Because who knows, maybe one day you too might spill a hot beverage while watching a TV show, and you will want to know your rights!

This is pure heaven – combining sports and the law! Not since someone discovered the utopian pleasure of combining peanut butter and chocolate has such a combination been so heavenly inspired. This is a series on what happens with athletes call their attorneys. Was Barry Bonds guilty of perjury? Or did he obtain that new physique through change of his diet? Can a fan sue when the opposing team cheats? Or what about the ever present danger of being hit by hotdogs being shot from a cannon from the loveable mascot? If an attorney wants to handle sports related cases, from injuries caused to spectators, to criminal repercussions for athlete’s statements, to lawsuits against a team for violating the rules of the sport, this class offers practical tips, and a few laughs along the way.
