Using New Technology to Improve Deposition Outcomes
Statistically speaking, witnesses in any case will testify under oath only once: at their deposition. Your team’s performance in each depo can have a huge impact on outcomes.

  • The “Deposition Lifecycle” and why it matters
  • New methods for leveraging data & technologies
  • Educating clients about the advantages of utilizing deposition technologies
  • Advantages and potential pitfalls of automated tools, human-driven processes, and “hybrid” processes
  • What’s on the horizon
  • And more!

Stuart Teicher: What “Letter from Birmingham Jail” Teaches About Inclusion in the Law
In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested in Birmingham, Alabama for violating the States’ law against mass public demonstrations. From his jail cell, Dr. King penned an important response to clergy-people who criticized the protest that got him arrested. The words from that letter have proved to be among Dr. King’s most important writings and, interestingly, they are relevant to lawyers as well. Join the CLE Performer, Stuart Teicher, Esq., as he evaluates the text of that letter and explains how the content of that critical piece of correspondence can help lawyers improve inclusion in the practice of law.

Tell Me More: Using Stories to Attract and Persuade
One of the many challenges today’s lawyers face is communicating their firm’s unique offerings, culture, and other intangibles to a variety of audiences.  Stories are an excellent (and often overlooked) way to humanize facts and invite people to experience what makes you different.  This lively, upbeat program explores the benefits of using stories to frame issues, engage audiences and inspire action.  You’ll discover where to find good stories in your everyday life, how to craft them, and where to tell them.  When done correctly, a good story cuts through the noise and increases the “re-tell” value of your message.

Specifically, you will discover how to:

  • Transform boring material into interesting stories
  • Communicate your ideas in a more compelling way
  • Make complex information more accessible
  • Use stories to make your presentations more memorable

Great (Legal) Minds Think Differently: Celebrating and Supporting Neurodiverse Attorneys
No two brains are the same. An estimated 1 in 7 people are neurodivergent, including those with autism, ADHD, mental health disabilities, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, or acquired brain differences. Given this prevalence, why are conversations around neurodiversity nonetheless so difficult, especially in the context of law practice? How can we dismantle the barriers for neurodiverse clients to ensure they have equitable access to justice? In this session, Haley will unpack the nuances of accommodations, ethical considerations for representing neurodivergent clients, navigating disclosure, advocating for ourselves and others, and building accessibility into our understanding of “inclusion” and access to justice. Come prepared for lightbulb moments, and leave feeling more empowered to tackle stigma.

Learning Objectives and Takeaway Thoughts: 

  • Defining and understanding neurodiversity, including through the lens of Haley's own experiences
  • Understand the major barriers to access for disability inclusion
  • Challenge our own experiences with ableism and stereotyping on the basis of disability
  • Guidance on how to be a strong advocate and ally for neurodivergent attorneys
  • Understand the implications of the Americans with Disabilities Act with discrimination and accommodation solutions

Elimination of Bias: Understanding Stress, Trauma, Addiction, and Bias in the Legal Profession
Lawyers face stress daily and are subject to circumstances that can lead to higher stress levels than those with other careers. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for substance use problems and mental illness, particularly depression, which are also more prevalent among lawyers.  By understanding this continuum and the facts about addiction and mental illness, lawyers can reduce their risk and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a mental health or addiction/dependency problem.  This program will present signs, symptoms, risk factors, and recovery regarding these problems.  The presenter will also provide personal examples and information on Minnesota’s lawyer assistance program.
