    Advances in Technology: Protecting the Truth Details


    Price:
    $19.99

    Course Description

    With Deepfake videos the ability to manipulate audio, video and images has created a fundamental trust problem and is a major corporate threat. Soon, we literally might not be able to believe our own eyes or ears when trying to detect and deter corporate fraud, for example disgruntled employees creating fake clips of their supervisor or co-employee to undermine them or get them fired, or changing a voicemail recording of what a person said to support a false claim. Additionally, so called "pump and dump" schemes use a combination of fake audios and videos to quickly spread corporate misinformation to impact high-frequency trading algorithms that rely on digital information to make investment calls. In the courtroom sophisticated AI generated images has raised issues related to legal challenges to digital evidence based on authenticity, with similar problems in e-discovery. Of course, the cultural and political ramifications, and privacy and social media concerns about deepfake videos becomes more evident every day.

    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.

    $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.

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

    Leak-Driven Law

    Leak-Driven Law Details


    Price:
    $24.99

    Course Description

    Over the past decade, a number of well-publicized data leaks have revealed the secret offshore holdings of high-net-worth individuals and multinational taxpayers, leading to a sea change in cross-border tax enforcement. Spurred by leaked data, tax authorities have prosecuted offshore tax cheats, attempted to recoup lost revenues, enacted new laws, and signed international agreements that promote "sunshine" and exchange of financial information between countries.

    The conventional wisdom is that data leaks enable tax authorities to detect and punish offshore tax evasion more effectively, and that leaks are therefore socially and economically beneficial. This Article argues, however, that the conventional wisdom is too simplistic. In addition to its clear benefits, leak-driven lawmaking carries distinctive risks, including the risk of agenda setting by third parties with specific interests and the risk associated with leaks' capacity to trigger non-rational responses. Even where leak-driven lawmaking is beneficial overall, it is important to appreciate its distinctive downside risks, in order to best design policy responses.

    This Article is the first to thoroughly examine both the important beneficial effects of tax leaks, and their risks. It provides suggestions and cautions for making and enforcing tax law, after a leak, in order to best tap into the benefits of leaks while managing their pitfalls.

    Course Agenda

    Diana Maier

    Diana Maier is an employment and privacy law expert who founded The Law Offices of Diana Maier, PC, a San Francisco Bay Area company that provides exceptional customer service in privacy and employment law. Diana and her team advise companies on the legality of their workplace privacy and employment practices, litigate cases when needed, and conduct workplace investigations. Diana is certified in both European Union and US privacy laws and is a fluent Spanish-speaker.

    Diana attended Stanford Law School and graduated in 1998. She received a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service, magna cum laude, from Georgetown University in 1992.

    Diana began her legal career as a Public Defender for Santa Clara County, where she spent each day in the courtroom defending misdemeanor, felony, and three strike cases. She enjoyed great success in winning trials for her clients and felt that she had found her ?calling? in life. But in 2003, Diana decided to transition to a career that was more sustainable for family life, and she began practicing employment law. She joined forces with the plaintiffs? employment law firm Bushnell, Caplan & Fielding, LLP, which later became Bushnell, Caplan, Fielding & Maier, LLP. Diana left the firm in 2008 in order to launch the Law Offices of Diana Maier and focus more on the defense side of employment work, particularly litigation preventative work.

    In early 2013, Diana began working as outsourced In-House Counsel for Labor and Employment and Privacy Law for Quantum Corporation in Silicon Valley. To handle this role more skillfully, Diana earned two privacy credentials, CIPP/US and CIPP/E, through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). Diana?s CIPP/US and CIPP/E certifications represent her dedication to thoroughly understanding global privacy laws for the benefit her clients. By knowing and applying privacy and data protection laws and regulations in the United States and Europe, Diana is able to ensure privacy compliance on a global scale.

    Diana is a frequent speaker and writer on an enormous range of topics in employment and privacy law. She presents a quarterly public webinar (which can be found on her website under ?Lunchtime Legal Chats?) and also frequently speaks to the Marin County & San Francisco Bar Associations, as well as numerous non-attorney organizations. She has been published in The Recorder, the ABA Journal, and countless online publications, and she is often cited as an expert in news stories pertinent to employment and privacy law. You can find handouts from her presentations and articles featuring her at www.dianamaierlaw.com/resources. Diana is the former Chair of the Marin County Bar Association Labor and Employment section, and she serves as an advisor in the areas of employment law and privacy to Casetext, a legal start-up organization in Silicon Valley.

    Diana's legal hobbies are blogging on employment and privacy law issues and exploring the practice of compassionate law, the idea that lawyers can be problem solvers and healers of conflict rather than just combatants for hire. Diana especially enjoys serving on the Board and heading up the Fundraising Committee of OneJustice, a California based legal non-profit that provides legal services to marginalized populations who otherwise wouldn?t have access to an attorney.

    NLRB-Labor Law Update Details


    Price:
    $19.99

    Course Description

    Changes in the composition of the National Labor Relations Board have led to changes in workplace law. The scope of employees? protected activity as well as employers? rights to set policy and to manage the workforce are in flux. More change is anticipated as the NLRB looks at setting new standards for union organizing, workplace access of union representatives, use of electronic communications, and the scope of protected employee dissent. In case rulings, guidance memos, and proposed regulations, this is a time of change labor and employment law practitioners need to follow.

    Course Agenda

    • The National Labor Relations Act vests employees with rights under Section 7 to engage in activities relating to unions, mutual aid and protection on wages, hours, and terms and conditions of employment, or to refrain from such activity.
    • The NLRB has two principal functions pursuant to the NLRA:
    • enforcing laws to ensure that workers may freely exercise their rights under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act (the Act) without any interference from employers or unions, and
    • holding secret ballot elections at which workers can choose whether to have a union represent them.
