2020 is the year that unforeseen change came to the courts and to the practice of law in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Concern for safety and health has drawn upon the tools of modern technology to do our work, most often in a virtual format. Necessity is the mother of innovation in our courthouses and our law firms in almost everything we do – hearings, trials, depositions, client meetings, mediations, law firm management and more.  Hear from judges, lawyers, and law firm managers on how things are different, what “changes” are working well or not so well, what technology and software is most useful, how to protect the physical and mental health of our colleagues and law firm staff, and what will likely stay changed about the way we work even after the pandemic has passed.  This is your view through the window into our brave new world.

An expert in the psychology of how lawyers negotiate with others and themselves brings compelling insights into how lawyers negotiate in resolving disputes and into how lawyers make decisions in the face of ethical conundrums. This program draws from the study of intersections of  law, dispute resolution, and psychology and will describe the psychological nuances of legal negotiation (you may be surprised) and the blind alleys that can lead us into ethical missteps (you may rethink).  You will increase your understanding of the role of psychology in legal negotiation and perhaps decide more wisely, drawing on your best instincts, in withstanding pressures that otherwise might lead to unethical decisions.

Meier and Lawyer-Representative Alex Caval introduce our new U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Noah Hillen and the new bankruptcy trustees.  Then learn about how  things get complicated when the plaintiff in a pending personal injury case files a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition or forgets to mention the claim in the petition.  How does the case proceed, who is the client, how does a plaintiff’s lawyer get paid, who is entitled to receive any settlement proceeds?  No one likes surprises dropping out of the sky in the middle of a lawsuit. This program will help you be less surprised and more aware about what to do.
