  • Speak the Speech: Shakespeare and the Art of Rhetoric (6/23/2021)

    Includes Credits

    In this unique program, we will use examples from Shakespeare to learn about various modes of persuasion, and tangible strategies for improving your style and delivery in the courtroom.

    As part of our legal training, we are not taught presentational, oratorical, or storytelling skills, which are essential for any litigator.  These skills cannot be taught by reading a book; they require practice.  Shakespeare is the perfect teacher because he is a master of rhetoric and through his works we learn storytelling, emotion, empathy, and presentational skills to help us become more effective communicators. In this unique program, we will use examples from Shakespeare to learn about various modes of persuasion, and tangible strategies for improving your style and delivery in the courtroom.

  • The Present Landscape of Internet Accessibility (6/23/2021)

    Includes Credits

    In this session attendees will learn about: who is being sued for lack of internet accessibility; how courts are handling questions of whether Internet sites have to be accessible at all; what “ADA compliance,” for websites actually means.

    One of the absolute hottest areas in ADA litigation is the issue of Internet accessibility for persons with disabilities. In this session attendees will learn about: who is being sued for lack of internet accessibility; how courts are handling questions of whether Internet sites have to be accessible at all; what “ADA compliance,” for websites actually means; why widgets and overlays are problematic for purposes of ADA compliance; the role that WCAG plays in ADA compliance of websites; and how rules are different under title I and II of the ADA.

    Speaker: William D. Goren, Esq., of William D. Goren, J.D., LL.M. LLC in Decatur, GA, has been dealing with the ADA as an Attorney since 1990. His law and consulting practice, https://www.understandingtheada.com/, as well as his blog, Understanding the ADA, (a member of the ABA Top 100 for five consecutive years, 2014-2018- there was no ABA 100 in 2019 or 2020), all focus on understanding the ADA so that the client understands what it means to comply with that law. In particular, he provides consulting, counseling, representation, and training services involving compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and related laws- such as the Air Carrier Access Act and the Fair Housing Act, among others. Mr. Goren also brings a deep, personal understanding of what it means to have a disability, equipping him with exceptional insight on how the ADA actually works. He is deaf with a congenital bilateral hearing loss of 65–90+ decibels, but functions entirely in the hearing world thanks to hearing aids and lip-reading. For reasons independent of his deafness, he also uses voice dictation technology to access his computer. He is also a frequent presenter, a trained mediator, a FINRA arbitrator, and an arbitrator on the CPR employment panel. Finally, he is the author of Understanding the ADA, now in its 4th edition (ABA 2013), and numerous other articles on the rights of persons with disabilities.  Interesting fact: He trained his miniature poodle to be a hearing dog while he practices virtually.

  • Researching Experts & Judges (6/15/2021)

    Includes Credits

    This course looks at the various types of online resources that are available to investigate Experts and Judges as well as tips and strategies on how that information might be utilized.

    This course looks at the various types of online resources that are available to investigate Experts and Judges as well as tips and strategies on how that information might be utilized. 

    Part 1- Experts: Expert witnesses are used in a wide range of litigation and their critical opinions often make or break a case. As a result, many trials have turned into a battle of the experts. Yet despite their importance, few attorneys take the time to utilize the proper resources to find the right experts, evaluate their credentials, and/or assess the admissibility of their testimony. Even if you are not the one who conducts the research, just knowing what resources are available may help you to be better prepared in vetting your own experts and finding damaging information about the opposition’s expert. 

    Part 2 – Judges: Whether a bench or jury trial, knowing as much as you can about the Judge who will preside over a lawsuit is critical. We’ll discuss the various types of online resources that can be used to gather information about a Judge as well as tips and strategies on how the information uncovered might be utilized to gain a competitive advantage.

  • How To…Improve Document Creation Workflows—And Why It Matters (6/10/2021)

    Includes Credits

    In this program, we’ll discuss the duty of technology competence and bring it into the real world with a focus on MS Word in legal practice.

    Today 39 states require that all lawyers maintain an awareness of the benefits and risks of technology in their law practices. One area where lawyers use technology the most—but rarely consider the risks or opportunities—is document creation.

    In this program, we’ll discuss the duty of technology competence and bring it into the real world with a focus on MS Word in legal practice. We’ll take a deep dive into document-creation work and explore options for working more effectively and efficiently. To guide our discussion, we’ll draw from the ongoing work of a collaboration of legal professionals called the “Effectiveness Project,” which seeks to provide lawyers a clear framework for document creation.

    Join Ivy B. Grey and Colin S. Levy from WordRake as they explain the “Effectiveness Project” and the importance of technology competence.

The pandemic has resulted in hackers accessing PII from many places, including government and businesses.  This program aims to educate our members on how to prevent identity theft for themselves and their clients. In Part 2 of this 2-part series, CBA Treasurer John Sciaccotta will introduce the program and share his perspectives on how identity theft can impact us as we provide key information and materials to help us cope with the challenges of the pandemic on their practices and their clients lives. CBA Board Member Ashley Rafael will then moderate a discussion with Commander Juan Mazariegos, Investigation Commander for the Deerfield Police Department, and Detective Trevor Salato, specialists in identity theft protection who will offer advice and information on: (1) what to do if you become a victim of identity and your identify is stolen, (2) how to report identity theft to the police and organize information and affidavits to give to lawyers, (3) the most frequent places where the security has been lax, so that hackers often gain access to PII data, and (4) hiring identity theft companies and their effectiveness.

    The presentation will be followed by a local market update for Chicago. It will include the overall state of the market, market activity and projected Covid-19 impact for the short and long run on the Chicago real estate markets.

    Prior to Covid-19, the legal sector was changing at lightning speed in all aspects of business, financial and operational arenas. Now more than ever, these changes will continue to change at an even faster pace with new ways of working, servicing clients, expanding technology use and the overall streamlining of legal services – and how it will impact real estate decision making in the future.

National and global statistics in all areas of the sector, from workplace shifts to technology, as well as recruiting and retention and mitigating fee demands to increase profits will be shared. We will provide C&W’s forecast for the future and the direction and possibilities that law firms will be adapting to in the years ahead. Lastly, the presentation will include Key Takeaways from our December and May 2021 Leadership Roundtable discussions with forty + COO’s and Real Estate Directors from AM/100 and 200 US law firms, to the short and long-term Covid-19 impact on real estate decision making.
