    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.

    Collaborative practice is an alternative to any form of dispute resolution that leaves the relationship between the parties broken and the parties themselves frustrated by a loss of control over the way personal and business problems are being handled.

    In collaborative practice, all parties – each represented by counsel – work in a cost- and time-effective manner to achieve a settlement that reflects the needs and interests of all, including an agreement that the collaborative lawyers will not take the matter to court themselves if the effort fails. This concept works best when the disputing parties have an ongoing relationship with each other or with third parties that they wish to maintain.

    Besides prompt and efficient resolution, other benefits include complete privacy of the proceeding with no public record, as well as allowing the parties to maintain control of the outcome – with no judge, jury or arbitrator dictating the result.

    Fine-tuning the relationships between the law, attorneys, citizens, government and the Constitution can seem as if it requires that perfect pitch so few of us have. 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
    • Data privacy and legal ethics
    • Administrative searches and warrants
    • Injunctive relief when citizens participate in democracy
    • Protecting rights and citizens from debtors prison

    From Main Street to Middle Market, finding workable financing solutions is a major challenge for most business owners.

    This challenge is magnified in the service-oriented economy that exists in most markets and provides significant employment opportunities that support the economies in those communities. More “traditional” solutions provided by Banks are challenged due to lack of hard assets or other collateral in service related companies that provide the secondary repayment sources required by the bank regulators.

    This program discusses and provides hands on creative financing solutions to enable you to bring value to your clients who are current or prospective business owners.

    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.

    Collapse Where You Stand is Where You Sit: The Multifaceted View of the Public Records Act (Administrative Law and Government & Public Sector Sections Joint CLE)

    Original Program: November 16, 2018

    Available formats

     

    The Public Records Act allows citizens and groups a right to access government information, but this ideal can often conflict with reality.

    The phrase “Where you stand is where you sit” captures the idea that the world looks different depending on where you’re viewing it from, and one’s vantage point can lead to the polarization of “us” versus “them.”

    This program about the Public Records Act starts out with a statutory and case law update and moves into a day full of learning and discussion of viewpoints.

    Topics include:

    • NC Guide to Open Government and Public Records
    • Covering legal fees
    • Legitimate information requests
    • Use of third-party vendors
    • Law enforcement and public safety records
    • …and more!

    Come sit (or stand) with us as we all learn new ways to view the complex Public Records Act. You may end up changing seats before the end of the day!

    Collapse You Have Got to Be Crazy to Do This: Working with Mental Health Professionals and Disordered Clients (2018 Family Law Fall CLE)

    Original Program: November 30, 2018

    Available formats

     

    Let’s face it…family lawyers do not see people at their best.

    However, some cases are outside even our range of what is “normal.” For instance, there is the client who is suspicious of everybody, including her own lawyer. Or the client who is impulsive and believes that everything is an emergency. Lastly, the client who sticks his head in the sand and is unwilling to admit that his spouse is having an affair, despite ALL evidence to the contrary.

    Sometimes we need a professional to help these clients and to help us. Mental health professionals can be an invaluable resource in family law cases, particularly those where one or both parties have a genuine mental health issue. We need to know how to utilize mental health professionals, both in and out of court.
