    This year’s program does a "deep dive" into two areas where the law and medicine intersect with even more complexity than ever before: payment for medical services rendered and the challenges posed by behavioral health and substance abuse issues.

    The morning session is devoted to a discussion of alternative payment models and related tax, insurance, and antitrust issues, as well as the legal issues created by, among other things, paying providers not to take care of patients.

    The afternoon session centers around the current status of 45 CFR Part 2, the intersection of mental health and substance use disorders, and the challenges faced by hospital counsel related to both, including involuntary commitment.

    An executive roundtable ties the two sessions together while highlighting other challenges facing the health care industry. Substance abuse credit is included.

    The Insurance Law Section’s 2019 CLE is premised on a “back to basics” concept to assist attorneys and insurance adjusters both new to and well versed in insurance law.

    Insurance law encompasses many issues and areas of practice, including whether a policy of insurance potentially provides coverage for a claim and disputes between third parties and individuals or entities listed as named insureds or identified as additional insureds under a policy.

    In addition to those matters, learn from exceptional attorneys as they share, explain and provide helpful practice information in the areas of commercial general liability insurance, excess and umbrella insurance, directors and officers insurance, errors and omissions insurance (malpractice insurance), medical health insurance, disability insurance, automobile insurance and homeowner’s insurance.

    The program also addresses issues concerning insurance carriers’ duty to defend and provides an excellent role play of an insurance coverage dispute.

    This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about analyzing and handling insurance law matters, and is useful to attorneys from a wide range of practice areas.

The maestros in the sound booth adjust the volume, tone, rhythm and other elements of music, musicians and instruments as they record.

    Similarly, attorneys work to adjust the sometimes-competing elements of the music of our law, government and democracy, leading to harmony or discord.

    This program presents a full-day’s concert of sessions dealing with the legal music of our lives.

    Topics include:

    • A view from the bench regarding Section 1983, government and citizen suits
    • Protecting voting rights and empowering citizens in environmentally vulnerable areas

    When legal instruments require complex formatting, most Word users struggle to get the document to look the way they want.

    Users often describe it as a "wrestling match" or having to "outsmart the program." Some advanced features like automatic paragraph numbering, tables of contents, and tables of authority seem inaccessible or broken. Because legal users require so much of Word, they often feel extremely frustrated by it.

    If you’re sick of the struggle, this class is designed by a lawyer for legal users to master and control Word.

    Bring Your Laptop: We'll make the sample files we use in the exercises available in advance as a download so you can follow along with the exercises in class.

    Which Version of Word: The program covers Word for Windows 2019/Office 365, however, the manual included in the program materials covers Word 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and 365. Word for Mac 2011 and Word for Mac 2016/19/365 manuals are also available for download.

    This year’s program does a "deep dive" into two areas where the law and medicine intersect with even more complexity than ever before: payment for medical services rendered and the challenges posed by behavioral health and substance abuse issues.

    The morning session is devoted to a discussion of alternative payment models and related tax, insurance, and antitrust issues, as well as the legal issues created by, among other things, paying providers not to take care of patients.

    The afternoon session centers around the current status of 45 CFR Part 2, the intersection of mental health and substance use disorders, and the challenges faced by hospital counsel related to both, including involuntary commitment.

    An executive roundtable ties the two sessions together while highlighting other challenges facing the health care industry. Substance abuse credit is included.

    Workers’ compensation laws date back to 2050 B.C., when ancient Sumerian law outlined compensation for injury to a worker’s specific body parts.

    With the rise of the Industrial Revolution, statewide laws were passed beginning in 1911 to protect injured workers and allow employers to quantify, control and predict their operating costs. As the workplace has continued to evolve, so too have the laws.

    When handling cases related to personal injury, employment law, health care, or numerous other areas, you need to have a basic understanding of workers’ compensation claims to effectively represent your clients.

    Learn the fundamental steps of a typical workers’ compensation claim as experts guide you through the process and discuss how a claim typically arises, what occurs as the claim plays out and how a claim is ultimately resolved.
