BTG Session B: Ethically Building and Protecting Your Online Reputation

No longer can you avoid the fact that we are a nation that lives online. More than 2/3ds of Americans use the internet in some way, shape or form. One of the ways they use it is to find out information about attorneys and that means you need to have a presence on the internet. And the percentage of people who go to the internet first grows every year. This seminar teaches attorneys the ethical methods of building, maintaining and protecting their online reputations. But more importantly, this seminar will talk about the ethics issues that accompany the use of social media by attorneys. In fact, there are a myriad of ethics rules that are tied to the use of these sites, and they will all be discussed.

Christian, Islamic, and Jewish Dispute Resolution in the NY/Metropolitan Area

Adeste Fideles! The Public Religion Research Institute has reported that seventy-five percent (75%) of New Yorkers are religiously affiliated. This means that if you, as an attorney or dispute resolution professional, are actively serving New Yorkers, it is practically impossible to avoid religious beliefs, considerations, and values as part of your practice. Join us and our panelists, three masters of Christian, Islamic, and Jewish dispute resolution, as they discuss faith-based dispute resolution processes available in the New York metropolitan area. Learn how and when religious legal principles and values can, must, or do not apply towards resolving a variety of civil disputes and the interaction between these principles and values and secular law, such as the Federal Arbitration Act and Article 75 of the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules. Hear about faith-based dispute resolution procedure and real-life examples of disputes successfully resolved outside of the traditional litigation process. Acquire practical dispute resolution tips and knowledge of resources that you can use to broaden your cultural horizons and assist your religious neighbors even if you don’t practice their specific faith. In the current era of presumptive alternative dispute resolution, this is certainly not a program you can afford to miss!

Protect Your Record During Depositions and Trial

The transcript is an important document before, during, and after a trial. It is used for trial preparation, briefs, impeachment purposes, and, of course, for appellate review. Property, freedom, and life all can depend on a clear and accurate record. It aids in the attorneys’ ability to fully defend their clients. Many cases lost in trial courts are subsequently won on appeal because the record was carefully made in the trial court. You will receive answers to legal, ethical, technological, and financial questions relative to making a record. This program’s objective is to teach you how to use the services of a skilled stenographer to the fullest in the deposition and courtroom setting. We will highlight the benefits of having the realtime screen to help formulate additional questions, review testimony on breaks, and correct unclear testimony in the moment. It will be an engaging, entertaining, and informative presentation given by qualified, dedicated professionals. About the Faculty: Frederick K Brewington, Law Offices of Frederick K.
