  • Author/Instructor:  Oklahoma Bar Association CLE Department

Filmed during the 2022 Annual Meeting Lawyers Helping Lawyers     Survive and Thrive: Vicarious Trauma in the Law and What to do about it.  Trauma and vicarious trauma is virtually everywhere in the legal world.  This program looks at how vicarious trauma affects clients and attorneys.  It also overviews types of direct and secondary trauma experienced by lawyers and clients, how such trauma affects wellness, and skills to process trauma or prevent it from causing mental health issues. Suicide Prevention: ASK About Suicide to Save a Life Attorneys often interact with colleagues or clients at risk for suicide. In this program, we will watch a video on suicide prevention focusing on the legal realm and provide participants with an overview of the basic epidemiology of common mental health issues, suicide and suicidal behavior, and risk and protective factors. Participants will learn to recognize warning signs—behaviors and characteristics that might indicate elevated risk for suicidal behavior.  It will also cover what to do if a person they think might be at risk, including guidance for referring the person to help. The movie will be followed with a discussion to learn ways to identify and help fellow attorneys who may be thinking about suicide.  Mindfulness and the Practice of Law: Panel Discussion.    According to research, mindfulness is a leading solution to anxiety and of course anxiety is one of the most common problems for lawyers.  In this panel discussion, we will look at powerful research regarding the benefits of breathing exercises and other real-life strategies that you can use in your busy professional life to help achieve a successful work-life balance. This panel will be open for discussion and questions to talk about what mindfulness can look like in your everyday practice.   Speakers:  Scott B. Goode; Shelia Naifeh; Michelle Fontenot; and Paul Jacobs.   Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

2022 Ethics and Social Media Update

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn

Lawyers use social media technology to collect and share information, and communicate with others, not only personally but also when acting as lawyers. Important and probative information about a case can be more easily found on social media than elsewhere. Social media is also easily used to communicate with existing or potential clients, colleagues or opposing lawyers, and the public. These and other uses of social media raise substantial ethical issues for lawyers – competence, confidentiality, preservation of the attorney-client privilege, and honesty.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to ethical issues when lawyers use social media for communication purposes in law practice. Communicating with parties, opposing attorneys, and witnesses via social media Researching jurors, parties, witnesses and judges via social media Ethical issues with blogging, e-newsletters/law updates to clients, posting video “Friending” or otherwise connecting with judges, witnesses and others on social media Trends in texting, confidentiality, and discoverability Using web sites, online advertising and social media for client development   Speaker: Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a substantial practice advising clients on properly creating and preserving the attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  For more than 30 years he has lectured extensively on legal ethics and professionalism and has written “The Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide,” a 750 page treatise published by the Virginia Law Foundation.  Mr. Spahn has served as a member of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and as a member of the Virginia State Bar's Legal Ethics Committee.  He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.   Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

Battling Gender Bias: How Bill Cosby and Other Sexual Predators Escape Punishment

$51.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Philip Bogdanoff, Esq.

Battling Gender Bias: How Bill Cosby and Other Sexual Predators Escape Punishment Bill Cosby victimized nearly sixty women and was convicted of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand and sentenced to prison.  However, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court reversed his convictions indicating he could not be tried again.   In 2006 the FBI did an extensive investigation of Jeffrey Epstein and found that he had sexually assaulted 37 girls, some as young as 14, and prepared a 53-page indictment.  However, Epstein was never charged in federal court and pleaded guilty to state charges where he served only 13 months in jail with work release.   In this presentation we will discuss the Epstein and Cosby prosecutions and other cases where the legal system protects the predator and not the victims.  Further, we will discuss why this occurs, how to prevent these miscarriages of justice and what steps we can take as lawyers to ensure that the legal system treats victims of sexual assault with dignity and respect.   Speaker: Philip Bogdanoff is a nationally recognized continuing legal education speaker on the topics of ethics, professionalism, and other related topics. Previously, as an attorney, he served as assistant prosecutor in the Summit County, Ohio Prosecutor’s Office for more than 25 years, beginning in 1981.

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn and H. Michael Drumm

Solo and small firm practitioners wear many hats.

They also need to be attentive to developing new clients. Each of these and other roles comes with ethical issues and traps.  Email, file storage, and law firm web sites implicate issues of competence, confidentiality, and potentially the attorney-client privilege.  Supervising paralegals or junior attorneys implicates supervisory ethics and conflicts of interest.  Client development also implicates a range of ethics issues.  It’s a lot to manage for a firm of any size, but particularly for smaller firms.This program will provide you with a practical guide to major ethics issues for solo and small firm practitioners.   ·         Ethical issues for small law firms and solo practitioners ·         Technology – storing client files in “the Cloud,” email traps, and remote networks ·         Pooled Resources – shared office/meeting space, shared support staff, shared technology ·         Client Development – web sites and lawyer biographies, email/newsletters, social media, advertising and more ·         Paralegals – training and billing, confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege ·         Co-Counsel – ethical responsibilities when practicing with other lawyers   Speakers:   Thomas E.

Ethical Issues in Contract Drafting

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn

Negotiating, drafting and reviewing contracts are processes fraught with ethical issues.  Negotiations sometimes require zealous advocacy, taking maximal positions; other times, they require delicacy and balance. Reviewing and drafting complex contracts is a similar ethical minefield. If you discover that the draft of a contract contains materially incorrect assumptions about the law but which will benefit your client, do you have the duty to disclose or correct the error?  In the same way, if the contract contains faulty assumptions about material facts, must you disclose those faulty assumptions?  And how do these rules apply when drafting a contract?  This program will provide you with a real world guide to the ethics of negotiating, drafting and reviewing contracts. ·         The law – when you know a counterparty has made faulty assumptions benefiting your client, must you say? ·         The facts – when a counterparty makes faulty factual assumptions, must you correct? ·         Ethics and rescission – are you ever ethically obligated to rescind or restate a contract? ·         Ethics in negotiations – what’s the line between zealous representation and deception? Speaker:   Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a broad complex commercial, business and securities litigation practice. He also has a substantial practice advising businesses on properly creating and preserving the attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  For more than 20 years he has lectured extensively on legal ethics and professionalism and has written “The Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide,” a 750 page treatise published by the Virginia Law Foundation.  Mr. Spahn has served as member of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and as a member of the Virginia State Bar's Legal Ethics Committee.  He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.   Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

There are also issues involving the exercise of undue influence by a caregiver or other person, including the validity of gifts to that person. Issues of preserving confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege when meetings are held in the presence of children or caregivers are also very important. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the most important ethical issues when lawyers represent elderly clients.   Determining whether your elderly client has capacity – and identifying your client Practical alternatives if you determine a client doesn’t have capacity Conflicts of interest between the elderly client and the person paying for the representation, including the validity of gifts Preserving confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege when a caregiver or third party is in client meetings Clients who lose capacity during a continuing representation Ethical issues involved with undue influence over the elderly – what should you do?

Ethical Pitfalls Lawyers Should Avoid On Social Media

$95.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Claude Ducloux and Jim Calloway

Ethical Pitfalls Lawyers Should Avoid On Social Media So many experts advise lawyers to market via social media. Prospective clients use social media. And, at least at the entry level, social media is free.  But unlike many other businesses using social media to market, most of lawyer’s best examples of accomplishments are given by client confidentiality an d attorney client privilege. Sharing something the client considers confidential with thousands of internet users is a problem, and deleting the post does not address all resulting issues.  Out two presenters have spent a great deal of time counseling lawyers who found themselves in social media hot water for possible ethics violations. Among the items covered will be: What are three ethical pitfalls attorneys should be mindful of regarding their social media presence? What are three ethical pitfalls attorneys need to be mindful of regarding their client's social media presence? What are the ethical issues with online reviews? Several examples of lawyer mistakes, inadvisable posts and other social media posts gone very wrong will be covered.   Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

Ethics & Artifcial Intelligence: What Lawyers Should Know

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn

Ethics and Artificial Intelligence: What Lawyers Should Know The use of artificial intelligence is not some distant prospect.  Many of the tools lawyers use today – online research platforms that suggest other areas for research, software packages that help complete forms or propose or assemble language, and discovery tools that sort through documents – are driven by artificial intelligence. These and other AI engineered legal tools raise substantial ethical issues. Are they the unauthorized practice of law? Have lawyers researched their capabilities such that they are competent to use them? How must lawyers supervise their use by non-lawyer staff?  This program will provide you with a guide to ethics issues when using software and other technology tools based on AI in law practice.   What duties do lawyers have to investigate and understand AI in the tools they use? Does AI constitute the unauthorized practice of law (UPL) in a state? Do software packages that draft language and assemble forms violate ethics rules? What supervisory and training obligations do lawyers have for non-lawyer staff using these tools? Are there ethics concerns of using AI in discovery? Must lawyers warn clients that they use AI?   Speaker: Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a substantial practice advising clients on properly creating and preserving the attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  For more than 30 years he has lectured extensively on legal ethics and professionalism and has written “The Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide,” a 750 page treatise published by the Virginia Law Foundation.  Mr. Spahn has served as a member of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and as a member of the Virginia State Bar's Legal Ethics Committee.  He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.   Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn

Whenever an attorney takes money from a client – for fees billed, to cover expenses, as a retainer, or held in trust – there are substantial ethical issues involved.  Many ethical complaints arise from accusations that an attorney mishandled funds. In billing and collecting fees and expenses, there are issues about whether the fees and expenses were explained in advance and are proper in relation to services provided.  If an attorney accepts credit cards from clients, there are significant issues related to disclosure, Truth-in-Lending laws, chargebacks, pass-through of merchant processing fees, and confidentiality.  In trust funds, there are issues of segregation of funds, accounting, and more. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the many ethical issues that arise when attorneys, clients, and money mix.   Traps in trust fund accounting and the risks of “set-offs” of disputed amounts Disclosure and documentation of trust accounting of client money Retainers – use, accounting, and regular communications Accepting credit card payments from clients –  pass-through processing fees, Truth-in-Lending, disclosure and confidentiality Confidentiality when a client has a dispute with his credit card company – ethical tension of client duties and contractual obligations Use of credit cards to fund a retainer and related trust fund accounting issues – trust funds v. operating funds   Speaker: Thomas E.

One of the dangers of practicing law is that, now and again, you get a dishonest client.  Your client may be misleading you – and others – about the facts of their case, either through silence or affirmative misstatements.  Or they may be telling you one thing and others something else different.  You may discover proof of the dishonesty or just suspect it. Client dishonesty raises many ethical issues.  What must you do to ensure your client is telling you the truth?  What if you discover a client is lying to a court or tribunal?  Are you allowed to disclose the dishonesty despite the duty of client confidentiality?  Are there degrees of client dishonesty – some acceptable, others not?  This program will provide you with a guide to the substantial ethical issues when client dishonesty is discovered or suspected.    Tension between the duty of confidentiality and the duty to be honest in communications Determining whether a client is lying – active v. passive, fact v. opinion, affirmative statements v. silence Unknowing attorney representations on basis of client dishonesty Duties of disclosure and to whom – the tribunal, third parties? Mandatory and permissive withdrawals from a case, including “noisy” withdrawals Discovery of dishonesty in closed matters   Speaker: Thomas E.

Ethics and Virtual Law Offices

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  H. Michael Drumm, Thomas E. Spahn

Technology allows lawyers far more flexibility to practice law virtually – from home or in shared settings – than ever before.  No longer must they maintain freestanding offices, support staff, and libraries. Lawyers can set-up offices in their homes, communicate with clients, adversaries and the courts electronically, outsource overflow work to co-counsel or vendors, and establish web sites that can reach potential clients. These “virtual” practices are increasingly commonplace, but the relative ease with which they are established obscures many significant ethical issues.This program will provide you with a practical guide to significant issues when lawyers and law firms establish “virtual” law practices.   Disclosure to clients of the virtual character of a law practice Electronic communications, confidentiality, and ethical risks in virtual practices Ethical issues when lawyers share office space or other resources but practice separately How Web sites and a “virtual” presence implicate multijurisdictional practice issues Outsourcing work to vendors or co-counsel, and ensuring its competently performed Requirements and risks when offering legal advice across state lines Duty to understand law office technology as a duty of competence   Speakers: H.

Ethics for Transactional Lawyers

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  William Freivogel and Thomas E. Spahn

Ethics for Transactional Lawyers   Representing a client in a business, commercial or real estate transaction can get ethically complicated very quickly.  There is the question of who you represent.  In a closely held company, with multiple shareholders or members, this can be problematic if the officer or manager from whom you are taking instructions thinks you represent that person and not the entity.  The client may offer you the opportunity to buy into a transaction, which puts your role as lawyer in tension with your role as investor.  There are also substantial ethical issues involved in negotiations and whether a party on the other side of the transaction is represented by legal counsel or not. This program will provide you with a real world guide to the ethics of representing clients in business, commercial, and legal transactions.   ·         Representation – who is your client? The company’s board or its owners? Do they know that? ·         Counter-parties – how do you negotiate on behalf of your client with unrepresented parties? ·         Business with clients – can you buy into (or be given) a stake in a client’s business or a transaction? ·         Serving on a client’s board of directors – how do you separate your legal role from your fiduciary obligation? ·         Negotiations – how do ethics rules limit your flexibility to negotiate?   Speakers: William Freivogel is the principal of Freivogel Ethics Consulting and is an independent consultant to law firms on ethics and risk management.  He was a trial lawyer for 22 years and has practiced in the areas of legal ethics and lawyer malpractice for more than 25 years.  He is chair of the Editorial Board of the ABA/BNA Lawyers’ Manual on Professional Conduct.

Ethics in Negotiations – Boasts, Shading, and Impropriety

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Anthony Licata and Thomas E. Spahn

Lawyers must always be truthful in their representations. Yet they must be zealous in representing clients. The tension between these two principles is perhaps never as great as when the lawyer is negotiating for a client. The lawyer may make statements about the law or fact – or simply refrain from making statements because the lawyer knows certain facts or legal precedent are adverse to a client’s interest.   Lawyers may also boast, signaling that a client’s position is stronger than is, in fact, the case. Navigating these gray lines is the difference between ethical representation and impropriety. This program will provide you with a guide to ethical issues in negotiations.   ·         Truthful representations v. zealous representations? ·         Affirmative statements of fact, value or intent in settlements ·         Silence about adverse law in negotiations ·         Silence about facts unknown to an opponent or counter-party ·         Silence about errors in settlement agreements or transactional documents ·         Non-litigation work in another state – “temporary” practice   Speakers: Anthony Licata is a partner in the Chicago office of Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, where he formerly chaired the firm’s real estate practice.  He has an extensive practice focusing on major commercial real estate transactions, including finance, development, leasing, and land use.  He formerly served as an adjunct professor at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and at the Illinois Institute of Technology.  Mr. Licata received his B.S., summa cum laude, from MacMurray College and his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School.     Thomas E.

Ethics in Trust and Estate Practice

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn, Missia H. Vaselaney

Trust and estate practice often sits at the intersection of money, aging clients, family drama, easy accusations of self-dealing and misdeeds, dispute – and anger.  This turbulent combination of circumstances can put attorneys in difficult ethical spots. Questions about the competence of aging clients in combination with family drama can easily lead to ethical complaints and eventually litigation.

This program will provide you with a practical guide to substantial ethical issues in trust and estate practice. Working with clients with diminished capacity and protecting against challenges Confidentiality – understanding what information is confidential and when and to whom it can be disclosed Conflicts of interest – joint and common representations, husbands and wives, multiple generations of a family Gifts from clients – what lawyers may accept, what should they decline?

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Elizabeth Treubert Simon and Thomas E. Spahn

Ethics of Identifying Your Client: It's Not Always Easy The first step in every ethics analysis is answering the question, who is your client?  It’s seemingly a very easy question to answer, but it’s not always 20/20 except in hindsight.  Representing multiple parties on the same matter, whether in litigation or on a transaction, may mean you have many clients, some or all with conflicts.   If you’re a private practitioner and you represent an organization, your client may be the entity, its officers from whom you are taking directions, or possibly both. If you’re an in-house attorney, the analysis – and its implications for the attorney-client privilege – becomes even more complex.  This program will provide you with a real world guide to ethics of identifying your client in a variety of settings avoiding conflicts of interest with the client.   ·         Ethics and identifying your client and avoiding conflicts in transactions and litigation ·         Representing businesses entities, nonprofit associations, and the government – client v. person giving directions ·         Identifying clients in trust and estate planning – the testator or the person paying your fees? ·         Special ethical challenges and ethical risks for in-house counsel and attorney-client privilege issues ·         How to untangle clients and conflicts in joint representations – managing conflicts and information flows ·         Best practices in documenting client representation to avoid later challenge   Speakers: Elizabeth Treubert Simon is an ethics attorney in the Washington, D.C. office of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, where she advises on a wide range of ethics and compliance-related matters to support Akin Gump’s offices worldwide.  Previously, she practiced law in Washington DC and New York, focusing on business and commercial litigation and providing counsel to clients regarding professional ethics and attorney disciplinary procedures.  She is a member of the New York State Bar Association Committee on Professional Discipline and the District of Columbia Legal Ethics Committee.  She writes and speaks extensively on attorney ethics issues.     Thomas E.

Ethics of Shared Law Offices, Working Remotely & Virtual Offices

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn

Ethics of Working with Experts and Witnesses

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn, Elizabeth Treubert Simon

Ethics of Working with Experts and Witnesses Preparing witnesses – whether fact witnesses or experts – for deposition or trial or conferring with them during breaks in testimony fraught with ethical issues. Expert witnesses are paid for their time, not their testimony. Though they may be hired to support a client’s view of the facts, there are limits to how experts can be coached. There are also real limits to how attorneys can prompt fact witnesses, for instance to “not remember” unfavorable facts. There are also significant ethical issues involving how to handle inadvertently produced privileged documents and when testimony goes in an unexpected adverse direction. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the ethical issues and traps of working with witnesses. Paying witnesses for their time versus their testimony Prompting a witness to “not remember” unfavorable testimony Conferring with witnesses during deposition breaks and the limits of what you advise Dishonest witnesses – what are your obligations to the court and your client?

FREE MOVIE NIGHT: Blossoms in the Dust

FREE
  • Author/Instructor:  OBA CLE

FREE MOVIE NIGHT: Blossoms in the Dust   Co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Supreme Court   FYI:  NO FOOD OR DRINKS ARE ALLOWED IN THE AUDITORIUM   About the Movie: Blossoms in the Dust is a 1941 American biographical film directed by Mervyn LeRoy and starring Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Felix Bressart, Marsha Hunt, Fay Holden and Samuel S. Hinds. It tells the story of Edna Gladney, who helped orphaned children find homes and began a campaign to remove the word "illegitimate" from Texas birth certificates, despite the opposition of "good" citizens. The screenplay was by Anita Loos, with a story by Ralph Wheelwright. Some of the important aspects of her life fictionalized in the film are the fact that it was Edna herself who was born out of wedlock; she and Sam eloped on the eve of her marriage to someone else, and they had much more time together before his death (26 years) than given them in the film. The film is a fictionalized telling of the story of Edna Gladney, an early advocate for the rights of "illegitimate" children in Texas and was one of the biggest hits of 1941 for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and began the rise of Greer Garson as one of the largest stars of the decade.[3] Blossoms in the Dust won an Oscar for Best Art Direction-Interior Decoration, Color, and was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Garson), Best Cinematography, Color, and Best Picture.       5:30 p.m.  -        Registration   6:00 p.m.  -        Movie: Blossoms in the Dust   8:00 p.m.  -        Panel Discussion    9:00 p.m.   -       Adjourn    MODERATOR: Chief Justice M.

They may be also be disciplined for any acts that involve dishonesty, misrepresentation, or any actions prejudicial to the judicial system. This program will provide you with a guide to circumstances in which ethics rules apply to lawyers when they act outside of law practice.   Dishonesty and misrepresentation when a lawyer is acting as a non-lawyer Lawyers as business people – how counter-parties can allege ethical misconduct Self-representation – when lawyers represent themselves in litigation, who can they communicate with?

Lawyer Ethics & Credit Cards

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn

Lawyer Ethics & Credit Cards Use of credit cards by law firms and lawyers is commonplace. Law firms may accept credit cards as means of payment for fees and expenses. This concession to the larger reality of the economy, however, raises many ethical issues. Can lawyers pass on credit card processing fees (which can be substantial) to clients?  What happens if a client’s credit card company does a chargeback of fees?  How does a lawyer maintain confidentiality when he or she has a dispute with a credit card company, or the client has a dispute with the credit card company?  These and many issues arise when lawyers accept credit cards from clients. This program will provide you with a guide to ethical issues when credit cards are accepted and used in law practice. ·         Passing on credit card processing fees to clients ·         Truth-in-Lending issues and tax penalties ·         Ethical issues when credit card companies chargeback funds paid to a lawyer or from a trust account ·         Confidentiality when a client has a dispute with his or her credit card company ·         Use of credit cards to fund a retainer and related trust fund accounting issues ·         Creditor claims against trust fund accounts ·         Leftover client funds and proper trust fund accounting   Speaker: Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a substantial practice advising clients on properly creating and preserving the attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  For more than 30 years he has lectured extensively on legal ethics and professionalism and has written “The Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide,” a 750 page treatise published by the Virginia Law Foundation.  Mr. Spahn has served as a member of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and as a member of the Virginia State Bar's Legal Ethics Committee.     Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

Lawyer Ethics and Disputes with Clients

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn, Elizabeth Treubert Simon

Ethical tensions are perhaps never as great as when a lawyer is in dispute with a client. The dispute may arise over fees, communication, perceived conflicts of interest, or something else.  In these and other circumstances, the lawyer’s duties of loyalty, zealous representation and confidentiality are all brought into direct conflict with the lawyer’s interest in self-defense. In these extremely delicate circumstances, the lawyer must determine what information may disclosed in his or her self-defense, its impact on the attorney-client privilege, and what steps he or she can take to de-escalate the conflict.  This program will provide you with a real-world guide to the ethical issues for a lawyer when he or she is in conflict with a client.   Disputes involving lawyers’ fees, communications, unfavorable result of representation, conflicts of interest, malpractice claims Confidentiality and self-defense – what disclosure of confidences is permissible?   Waivers and engagement letters to prevent dispute – or mitigate their damage Permissible and mandatory withdrawals from a representation Special attorney-client privilege issues in these disputes   Speakers: Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a substantial practice advising clients on properly creating and preserving the attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  For more than 30 years he has lectured extensively on legal ethics and professionalism and has written “The Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide,” a 750 page treatise published by the Virginia Law Foundation.  Mr. Spahn has served as a member of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and as a member of the Virginia State Bar's Legal Ethics Committee.  He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.

Lawyer Ethics of Using Paralegals

Lawyer Ethics of Using Paralegals Paralegals are often essential for lawyers to successfully practice law.  Paralegals conduct basic legal research, help review and prepare documents, and sometimes screen clients.  Still, they are not lawyers and not directly subject to the ethics rules applicable to lawyers.

Co-Presenter and Veteran Attorney Cynthia Sharp will join with Becky in sharing their own perspectives as well as viewpoints and experiences of others in the legal community. The speakers will delve into why words DO matter and discuss commonly held harmful assumptions related to diverse groups of people. You will also learn:  How to use mindfulness tools to develop deeper awareness about implicit bias and learn to counter insensitive attitudes  Specific steps that you can take IMMEDIATELY to reduce the ill effects of implicit bias in the legal setting  Concepts that will help identify and address unconscious bias when dealing with colleagues, clients, and others  How enhanced cultural competency will help any attorney both serve justice and advocate more   Speakers: Veteran Attorney Cynthia Sharp works with motivated lawyers seeking to build sustainable law practices. After building and selling her boutique firm which she ran for over a quarter of a century, she embarked on a professional speaking and consulting career.  For the past 10 years, she has dedicated herself to sharing practice building strategies and processes with solo and small firm attorneys throughout North America.

Legal Malpractice Insurance & Claim Avoidance 101

$51.00
  • Author/Instructor:  JoAnn L. Hathaway

Legal Malpractice Insurance & Claim Avoidance 101 Selecting legal malpractice insurance can be a daunting undertaking.  Due to lack of understanding, lawyers often find themselves without adequate coverage when a claim occurs.  This “too little too late” scenario could have been avoided if they had purchased coverage knowing some basic insurance concepts. In addition, many policies provide coverage outside the realm of legal malpractice coverage, such as coverage for disciplinary actions and employment practices liability.  Often unaware or having forgotten such coverage was part of their policy, many lawyer-insureds never avail themselves of these and other protections they have under their policy of insurance. During this informative, eye-opening program, you’ll learn about:          Policy pricing          Assessing carriers          The importance of the insurance application          Interpreting your coverage          Claims-made coverage          How to choose coverage limits          How to select your deductible          Policy endorsements          Policy “add-ons”          Why you should avoid coverage gaps          What to do when changing firms and carriers          Which claims are the most prevalent          The ABAs top 10 traps that can get you into trouble   Join JoAnn Hathaway as she helps to demystify the world of legal malpractice insurance.  Becoming an informed insured will help you protect your practice and sleep at night.   Speaker: JoAnn L. Hathaway is a practice management advisor for the State Bar of Michigan, where she developed, launched, and oversees the Bar’s practice management program. She previously worked as a legal liability claims director, risk manager, paralegal, and legal administrator.

LIVE REPLAY: Ethics in Negotiations – Boasts, Shading, and Impropriety

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Anthony Licata, Thomas E. Spahn

LIVE REPLAY: Ethics in Negotiations – Boasts, Shading, and Impropriety Lawyers must always be truthful in their representations. Yet they must be zealous in representing clients. The tension between these two principles is perhaps never as great as when the lawyer is negotiating for a client. The lawyer may make statements about the law or fact – or simply refrain from making statements because the lawyer knows certain facts or legal precedent are adverse to a client’s interest.   Lawyers may also boast, signaling that a client’s position is stronger than is, in fact, the case. Navigating these gray lines is the difference between ethical representation and impropriety. This program will provide you with a guide to ethical issues in negotiations.  Truthful representations v. zealous representations? Affirmative statements of fact, value or intent in settlements Silence about adverse law in negotiations Silence about facts unknown to an opponent or counter-party Silence about errors in settlement agreements or transactional documents Non-litigation work in another state – “temporary” practice   Speakers: Anthony Licata is a partner in the Chicago office of Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, where he formerly chaired the firm’s real estate practice.  He has an extensive practice focusing on major commercial real estate transactions, including finance, development, leasing, and land use.  He formerly served as an adjunct professor at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and at the Illinois Institute of Technology.  Mr. Licata received his B.S., summa cum laude, from MacMurray College and his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School. Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a substantial practice advising clients on properly creating and preserving the attorney-client privilege and work product protections.  For more than 30 years he has lectured extensively on legal ethics and professionalism and has written “The Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide,” a 750 page treatise published by the Virginia Law Foundation.  Mr. Spahn has served as a member of the ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility and as a member of the Virginia State Bar's Legal Ethics Committee.  He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.       Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

LIVE REPLAY: Professionalism for the Ethical Lawyer Ethics rules, the principles of professionalism, and sanctionable conduct are interrelated.  Lawyers have a duty to zealously represent their clients, but they do not have a duty to engage in offensive conduct that may be desired by clients.

In these and many other scenarios, ethics rules, professionalism, and potentially sanctionable conduct subtly interact.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to professionalism for the ethical lawyer.  Interrelationship of ethics rules, professionalism, and sanctions Zealous representation v. needlessly embarrassing an adversary or third-party Reacting to an adversary’s drafting errors in transactional documents Ethics, professionalism, and inadvertent transmission of communications Duty to supervise and train subordinate lawyers and staff, including to ensure courtesy to clients, opposing counsel, and courts Offering candid advice to clients and withdrawal when they demand offensive conduct Avoiding discrimination and bigotry   Speaker: Thomas E.

$51.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Daniel J. Siegel, Esq

Technical Fouls: Even Minor Ethics Violations Can Have Major Consequences

$50.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Sean Carter

Technical Fouls: Even Minor Ethics Violations Can Have Major Consequences When it comes to ethics violations, there is no such thing as a minor or "technical" foul. All ethics violations are serious matters, evidencing a breach of the trust that has been placed in the lawyer. As a result, lawyers must avoid falling into the mindset that a particular violation is "no big deal." To make this case, noted legal humorist Sean Carter will chronicle a number of recent ethics cases in which lawyers were surprised to discover that even minor ethics violations can have major consequences. In making the case that even minor ethics violations can have major consequences, Sean Carter will review cases where lawyers received surprisingly significant sanctions for such transgressions as: Failing to pay vendors Omissions on customs forms Unauthorized use of Westlaw accounts Using another's home address Falsifying MCLE compliance Petty crimes And much more       Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Thomas E. Spahn

Every lawyer wrestles with how to handle facts or law that is unfavorable to a client. There is a natural tension between a lawyer’s duty to be honest, on the one hand, and the lawyer’s duty to provide zealous representation of a client.  In some instances, bad facts or bad law must be disclosed.  In other instances, disclosure is not required. How this tension is resolved involves substantial ethical issues.  This program will discuss the ethics issues involved and how they may be resolved in a practical setting. Ethical issues surrounding the representation of adverse facts to tribunals and adversaries Disclosure of adverse legal precedents Required discloses of bad facts or law Timing issues – when must the disclosure occur?

The Ethics of Representing Two Parties in a Transaction

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  William Freivogel

The Ethics of Representing Two Parties in a Transaction Representing two or more clients in a business or commercial transaction is full of potential ethical traps.  It’s essential that clients understand the potential for conflicts of interest, how confidential information is shared among the joint clients, how negotiating strategies may need to be altered because of the joint representation, and the real risk to the transaction itself if the clients eventually develop unresolvable disputes among themselves. Counseling clients about information flows and obtaining a written waiver of conflicts from all clients are essential first steps but not the end of the process. This program will provide you with a real world guide to representing two or more clients in a business or commercial transaction.      Information flows and potential conflicts of interest      Counseling clients about sharing of confidential information – and its implications      Drafting conflict of interest waivers      Attorney-client privilege issues involved in joint representations      Negotiation ethics when representing multiple clients      What to do when jointly represented clients disagree       Speaker: William Freivogel is the principal of Freivogel Ethics Consulting and is an independent consultant to law firms on ethics and risk management.  He was a trial lawyer for 22 years and has practiced in the areas of legal ethics and lawyer malpractice for more than 25 years.  He is chair of the Editorial Board of the ABA/BNA Lawyers’ Manual on Professional Conduct.

The Ethics of Supervising Other Lawyers

$85.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Matthew Corbin

Lawyers are not only responsible for their own ethical conduct and decision making but also for the ethical practice of lawyers they supervise.  Whether it’s a partner supervising the work of an associate or the lead lawyer on a case supervising a group of partners and associates, the supervising lawyer has responsibilities to ensure that the lawyers he or she is supervising are ethically compliant. When subordinate lawyers violate ethics rules, supervising lawyers are potentially liable for that misconduct. This program will provide you with a guide to ethical issues when lawyers supervise other lawyers and non-lawyer support staff.   ·         Standards for ensuring compliance by subordinate attorneys and potential liability when they act improperly ·         Lawyer supervision of paralegals and other non-lawyer staff ·         Responsibilities of subordinate lawyers who rely on judgment of supervising lawyers ·         Special issues involved in billing the work of subordinate and co-counsel attorneys, and paralegals ·         In-house counsel of outside counsel   Speaker: Matthew Corbin is Senior Vice President and Executive Director in the Professional Services Group of AON Risk Services, where he consults with the company’s law firm clients on professional responsibility and liability issues.  Before joining AON, he was a partner with Lathrop & Gage, LLP, where he was a trial and appellate lawyer handling professional liability, commercial, business tort, employment, construction, insurance, and regulatory matters.

The Mindful Approach to Addressing Mental Health Issues in the Legal Field

$51.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Becky Howlett and Cindy Sharp

The Mindful Approach to Addressing Mental Health Issues in the Legal Field Join attorneys Becky Howlett and Cindy Sharp for this timely webinar as they explore the prevalence of burnout, stress, depression, and anxiety in the legal profession. The landmark 2016 study on lawyer impairment, Patrick R. Krill, JD, LLM, et al, The Prevalence of Substance Use and Other Mental Health Concerns Among American Attorneys, 10 Journal of Addiction Medicine 46 (January/February 2016), available at http://linkon.in/lawyerimpair, found that attorneys have disproportionately high rates of mental health concerns compared with the general population. For example, 45.7% of lawyers self-reported experiencing symptoms of depression and 61% for anxiety. Tragically, 63% of them did not seek help for their mental health concerns. One of the main reasons cited is the fear that they would be stigmatized if others discovered their “problem.” The objective of this program is to raise awareness about the nature of mental health distress in the legal setting, to challenge the biases and stigma that surround those concerns, and to motivate those who are suffering to take advantage of available resources. Certified Meditation Instructor Becky Howlett will teach and lead mindfulness practices throughout this session designed to help lawyers learn how to cope with stress, depression, and anxiety.   Topics include: High prevalence of mental health issues among lawyers Barriers to seeking treatment Ways to support colleagues who may be in distress Ethical implications of poorly managed stress Overcoming stigma in the legal community Mindfulness practices to help lawyers learn how to cope with stress, depression, and anxiety    Cynthia Sharp, Esq Veteran Attorney Cynthia Sharp works with motivated lawyers seeking to build sustainable law practices. After building and selling her boutique firm which she ran for over a quarter of a century, she embarked on a professional speaking and consulting career.  For the past 10 years, she has dedicated herself to sharing practice building strategies and processes with solo and small firm attorneys throughout North America. In recognition of her contributions to the profession, the ABA GPSolo Division named her Trainer of the Year.  As Director of Attorney Development, Cindy has established an international presence as an author and speaker on the topics of law firm branding and marketing strategies. She also shares practice management techniques with an emphasis on ethical implications - lecturing extensively to law firms, bar associations and other legal organizations.   Becky Howlett, Esq Becky Howlett is an attorney, consultant, and educator dedicated to facilitating positive relationships with others and ourselves.  After graduating from KU Law cum laude with a Tribal Lawyers Certificate in 2014, Becky focused her career on Indian Country advocacy, developing an expertise in federal Indian law and policy and tribal law. After experiencing burnout early on in her legal career, Becky felt compelled to do an in-depth study of meditation techniques and share these practices with others. In spring 2020, she co-founded legalburnout.com with the mission of empowering others to effectively manage their stress by promoting mindfulness practices in the legal field.       Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.

What My Facebook Posts Teach About Lawyer Mental Health

$50.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Stuart Teicher

What My Facebook Posts Teach About Lawyer Mental Health Stuart Teicher, Esq.   In this program I’m going to use a strange vehicle to make some important points. That’s right, I’m going to show some screenshots of the Facebook posts I’ve made over my years of traveling and connect them to mental health issues in the practice. Many of the posts I make are funny, but make no mistake about it, there are serious underlying issues. For that reason, I’ve carefully selected particular posts which illustrate those issues. The mental health issues that are represented by my Facebook posts include anxiety, compassion fatigue, burnout, substance abuse, and more. As I’m sure you’re aware, these particular mental health issues manifest themselves uniquely in the practice of law. That’s going to be the focus of this program.     Disclaimer:  All views or opinions expressed by any presenter during the course of this CLE is that of the presenter alone and not an opinion of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the employers, or affiliates of the presenters unless specifically stated.
