From Murder to Museums: Current Controversies Over Nazi-Looted Art

Hear from Ray Dowd, an advocate for families seeking the return of art and other possessions lost after they were stolen by the Nazis and, in some instances, looted by others, whose ground-breaking litigation to recover artworks lost during World War II has gained amicus curiae support from Holocaust survivors and heirs. Mr. Dowd will discuss the concept of art restitution as well as examples of ongoing restitution cases as well as whether museums around the world are doing enough to investigate their holdings and return looted art works to their rightful owners. He will also discuss the hurdles he has incurred while representing the heirs of Holocaust survivors, such as laches, statutes of limitations and claims that the sales were voluntary. This is a fascinating program which should not be missed!!!!

Effective, Innovative Ways to Prepare Clients for Deposition

* Also part of Session B of 4 Evening Bridge the Gap Lawyers generally consider themselves to be members of a "helping" profession. One of their chief responsibilities is to soothe and relieve anxiety that clients experience when it comes to their legal problems. That anxiety is particularly acute in the context of litigation. How can lawyers be sensitive to that anxiety and uncertainty, and how can preparation of clients for major litigation events (depositions, trials and mediations) most effectively address it? Our panel of experts will explore novel methods of client preparation for these events. Topics will include "dress rehearsals", video preparation, and techniques that are uniquely tailored to the client's personality. The ethical implications of preparing -- not coaching -- clients will be discussed along with how attorneys can determine where is the ethical line? In addition, the panel will explore the psychology of client performance and how it can be employed to increase the likelihood that a client's deposition or trial testimony will influence the outcome of the case.

Author Event: Hon. Frederic Block Discusses Race to Judgment

Hear from Hon. Frederic Block, about how his real life experiences led him to write his "reality-fiction" first novel which is "loosely based on a number of high-profile cases" that he handled during his more than 23 years on the federal bench in Brooklyn, including the Crown Heights riots, the civil case against New York City filed by Jabbar Collins who was unjustly convicted of murdering an Orthodox rabbi, and the Peter Gotti trial. Judge Block will discuss his views on racial tensions, political corruption and how they can lead to wrongful convictions of innocent defendants. These real life experiences have been translated into a "historical novel [that] dramatizes a defense attorney’s perilous stand against judicial corruption in Brooklyn."

Should On-line Legal Referral Services be Regulated?

In many ways we are becoming more and more dependent on our digital devices for both business and personal endeavors, Yet in other ways the business environment has not really changed -- businesses are still trying to reach as broad a potential market as possible and counterbalancing potential regulatory and consumer protection issues are still being raised by their products. In the legal arena, on-line attorney referral services have become an attractive way for attorneys to generate new business, while serving as a simple and cost effective way for the public to have their legal needs met --if the public is properly protected. Indeed, some referral services have recently run into problems, especially with regard to violating the attorney ethical rules. Join us for an important discussion of the issues associated with the use of on-line legal referral services. The program will bring together all interested parties, including representatives from such services, to understand how the referral services work; whether they are improving access to justice, especially for the poor and middle class; the ethical implications of the referral service models and their impact on the core values of the legal profession; to explore whether regulation is necessary to protect consumers in the legal services commercial marketplace or whether the attorney ethics rules need to be modified to reflect the realities of the new digital frontier. The program will consist of three panels, each followed by a question and answer session: Panel 1: The Online Legal Referral Industry: How it Developed; How it Works; Is it Improving Access to Justice? Panel 2: Ethical Implications of On-line Legal Referral Services Panel 3: Looking Forward: Do Consumers Need Protection, and if so Who Should Play a Role? Do the Attorney Ethics Rules Need to be Changed? What are the Next Steps and Where do we go From Here?
