ABA Professional Responsibility Client-Lawyer Guidelines Details


Price:
$29.99

Course Description

The Rules of Professional Conduct created by the American Bar Association are "the gold standard" when making decisions about legal ethics and best practice. These rules have been adapted by most state bars for the benefit of their members. In addition, the Rules are a standard authority across the U.S. during attorney disciplinary hearings and fee dispute arbitrations. In this MLCEZ course, David Graulich, Esq. provides a closer look at the ABA Rules that pertain to the attorney-client relationship. What is the division of authority between the client and the attorney? How does an ethical attorney avoid the appearance "or reality -- of conflict of interest" Can an attorney ethically agree to represent a client in an unfamiliar area of law? Can an attorney loan money to a client? Graulich illustrates the rules with real-life examples as well as working through hypothetical ethical questions that typically arise in private practice.

    Age Bias at Work: Why Our Laws are Ineffective and How to Improve Them

    Age Bias at Work: Why Our Laws are Ineffective and How to Improve Them Details


    Price:
    $24.99

    Course Description

    There is a saying that everyone in America will ultimately be a target of age bias, as the passage of time doesn't discriminate. We all get old. However, as plaintiff's attorney David Graulich explains in this class, U.S. laws that were intended to protect employees and job applicants from age discrimination have become ineffectual and weak. Technological and demographic change have far outpaced the primary Federal law, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), which first became law in the 1960's. Today algorithms, micro-marketing and data mining can ferret out who is "old" without even requiring human interaction. As Graulich points out, a regrettable decision by the United States Supreme Court has also made it difficult for plaintiffs to win in a lawsuit predicated on age discrimination. Graulich lays out his recommendations for how to overhaul and strengthen our legal framework, so that civil actions grounded in age bias will once again be a genuine deterrent for employers who discriminate against older people.

    Diversity in the Legal Profession Details


    Price:
    $19.99

    Course Description

    While awareness of the need for support for diversity among law firms continues to increase, the goal of proportionate inclusion for people of diverse ethnicity and women remains substantially unfulfilled. Members of historically underrepresented groups remain seriously disadvantaged in both training and work environments. In this program attorney Steven A. Nielsen discusses the gap between efforts to increase diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and the less than satisfactory results as documented in current statistical data. He offers his thoughts on how the profession can first recognize the root causes that contribute to a lack of diversity and how, with this knowledge, firms can implement practical policies of inclusion to provide a way forward to increase racial and gender diversity.

    How to Understand and Properly Value Client Assets Details


    Price:
    $19.99

    Course Description

    Legal issues arise in many areas when it comes to collectibles, and one of the hottest and most contentious areas involves record collections (from 78s to digital), and related music memorabilia.

    Accredited Senior Appraiser and member of the American Society of Appraisers who specializes in this area, Stephen M.H. Braitman has been involved in a myriad of cases which have required his services. In addition to his role as an expert witness in litigation, practice areas in which his expertise has been utilized include Family Law, Estate Planning and Insurance issues, evaluations for credible Fair Market Value, Replacement Value, and Liquidation value appraisals of contested property.

    In this program Mr. Braitman reviews the role of the appraiser and the process for certification as an appraiser. Specific issues include: The potential of a music collection, what to look for in "hidden assets" that may be significant, what issues arise between collectors (and?everyone else!) , some contentious records and memorabilia, the need for accurate appraisals and how an undervalued appraisal can affect both the financial and legal outcome of a family or institution, the current market in music records and memorabilia collectibles, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, credentialing of the appraiser, the appraisal process, issues in divorce, property settlements and estates, how to overcome the lack of value-knowledge of an insurance adjuster, appraised value as leverage or as collateral, satisfying I.R.S. donation requirements, auctions, and an in depth review of specific types of records and music memorabilia and their current and future value.

    Course Agenda

    If your firm represents libraries, archives, insurance agencies, or executors for estates, or is involved in family law, this program is a unique and valuable resource. Moreover, the cases in which Mr. Braitman has been personally involved, such as the Michael Jackson property at Neverland Ranch, the Elton John record collection, and donations to the Library of Congress and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, make this program a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at a wide variety of legal issues related to music, such as
