Digital Signatures

$51.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Jeffrey Schoenberger, Esq.

Digital Signatures Law and medicine were always the pair: well-respected professions, pathways to middle class (or better!) comfort, and laggards with technology. Whether you went to a doctor’s office or a lawyer’s office, paper ruled the day. But that’s changing. One of the last bastions of “paper is king” is the executed document – “wet” signatures serving as proof that a certain person signed a document. This is true…to a point. Depending on your state, some “wet” originals govern. But, for many transactions, digital signatures have the same full legal effect as “wet” signatures and they’re more secure to boot. A digital signature platform produces proof not only of who signed a document, but also when and where, as well as a “chain of custody” for the document. This seminar explores all things “digital signature” and starts you down the right path for a digital John Hancock.   Speaker: Jeffrey R. Schoenberger is an attorney and senior consultant for Affinity Consulting. Prior to joining Affinity, Jeffrey practiced law as an Equal Justice Works / AmeriCorps Legal Fellow for the Legal Aid Society of Southwest Ohio. His practice focused on representing homeowners in foreclosure cases, tenants in eviction actions, and individuals in divorce actions. While with Legal Aid, Jeffrey worked with over 130 distressed homeowners in their counseling and litigation activities and represented over 90 tenants in eviction and living conditions advocacy. Finally, he led seminars training non-profit housing counselors on the rapidly evolving government and private sector foreclosure prevention programs. Jeffrey received a B.A. in History from Yale University and J.D. from the University of Virginia. He became a member of the Ohio Bar in 2008. He is a member of the Ohio State Bar Association, Columbus Bar Association, and Cincinnati Bar Association.       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.

$200.00
  • Author/Instructor:  Rick Horowitz

“More Effective Writing Makes More Effective Lawyers”  Rick Horowitz, Discussion Leader   Course Description  There’s what you know in your particular areas of the law – and then there’s how well you’re able to communicate that knowledge. Communicate it to a variety of different audiences, through a range of different documents, to accomplish many different goals.   That can be hard work. Even stressful work. Maybe you could use a little help.  Help is on the way! Join writing coach and former attorney Rick Horowitz at the Oklahoma Bar Association on Tuesday, October 24, for “More Effective Writing Makes More Effective Lawyers.” It’s sure to be a lively and highly practical workshop that will reintroduce you to your legal-writing toolbox, including a few tools you didn't know were in there.  We’ll explore the fundamentals (and the critical details) of creating clear, concise, well-organized, persuasive legal documents.?We’ll take a fresh look at some of the assumptions and habits that often lead lawyers down less-than-productive writing paths. And we’ll talk about other approaches that might be even better options for you in dealing with the variety of legal-writing tasks most lawyers face.   Briefs, memos, client letters, even daily correspondence all benefit from your deeper understanding of what goes into successful writing, so we’ll examine good and not-so-good writing to see what worked, what didn't, and why. Among the topics we might cover:  When Lawyers Write: What Can Go Wrong? Knowing Your Goal(s), Knowing Your Audience(s) The Writing You Do Before You Start Writing Being Concise (1): “What’s In? What’s Out?” Overcoming “Blank-Screen Panic”: Those First Few Words... Organizing for Impact: “Where Do I Put It?” Being Concise (2): “How Do I Say It?” Being Precise: Catching Those Problems Before You Hit “Send”...

Storytelling for Lawyers: How to Engage Clients, Judges, and Juries, and Move Them to Action One of the many challenges today’s lawyers face is communicating complex fact patterns and arguments to a variety of audiences.

This lively, upbeat program explores the benefits of using stories to frame issues, engage clients, judges, and juries, and inspire action. You’ll discover where to find good stories in your everyday life, how to craft them, and how to tell them. When done correctly, a good story cuts through the noise and increases the “re-tell” value of your message. Specifically, you will discover how to:   Transform boring sets of facts into interesting stories.   Communicate your case in a more compelling way.   Make complex information more accessible.    Use stories to make your arguments more memorable.   Speaker: Steve Hughes is President Hit Your Stride, LLC, a communications consultancy that helps people look and sound smart when they talk.
