    Access to Justice

     

    "One of the constant criticisms of the Washington limited license legal technician is that there only around 30 licensed technicians so far—even though the program is still in its infancy. A second challenge is that, currently, the LLLT cannot represent a client in court.

     

    In many jurisdictions that are considering LTs, or something similar, the impetus is not just to deter the unauthorized practice of law and protect consumers but to also reduce the number of unrepresented litigants. Here, I will examine the apparent contradiction to reduce this unrepresented number with programs that recommend creation of LTs that cannot represent clients by comparing the proposed LT programs in Oregon and Utah with the New York City Court Navigator Program and the Ontario, Canada, paralegal program."

    The Modern Law Library

     Beyond Abortion book cover

     

     

    In the 45 years since Roe v. Wade was decided, it has been a focal point for both anti-abortion and pro-abortion rights groups. But the opinion in the 1973 case has also been used by activists of liberal, libertarian and conservative ideologies to develop privacy arguments for issues ranging from access to experimental drugs to euthanasia to personal data security to sex worker rights.

    In this episode of the Modern Law Library, the ABA Journal’s Lee Rawles speaks with Mary Ziegler, author of the new book Beyond Abortion: Roe v. Wade and the Battle for Privacy. Ziegler discusses what Roe v. Wade’s legacy has been, and how it advanced—or failed to advance—Americans’ right to privacy. She also speculates on what the impact would be for society and the U.S. legal system if Roe were overturned today.

    High Risk: Meeting the unique risk management and insurance coverage needs for cannabis businesses

     

     

    Speakers


    Jason Horst
    Principal
    Horst Legal Counsel

    Danny Bozzuto
    President and CEO
    Bozzuto Insurance Services

     

     

    While the cannabis industry will continue to be an inherently risky one in certain ways as long as marijuana remains illegal under federal law, that does not mean that cannabis businesses cannot or should not protect themselves against foreseeable business risks. It is more complicated to fully insure yourself and otherwise manage risks as a cannabis operator, but doing so is a critical component of growing a prosperous and sustainable cannabusiness.

    Topics


    • Identify unique--and commonplace--insurance and risk management needs of the cannabis industry
    • How issues surrounding the legality of cannabis play into insurance coverage availability, enforceability, and quality
    • Examination of cases interpreting cannabis insurance policies
    • Unique challenges in complying with public and private insurance requirements

    In an effort to protect their intellectual property and confidential information, and their customer and employee relationships, and to limit competitive injury from former employees, companies nationwide require employees to sign a variety of restrictive covenants that govern their employment and continue in effect after the employment relationships ends. Whether working with employers or individuals, advising clients in California on restrictive covenants requires an understanding of all applicable laws - including California law, federal law, and the law of other states - the challenges and limitations of these agreements, the context in which issues arise, and the options and strategies for resolution. This program will provide an introduction and overview of each of these topics and will focus on providing clients practical advice.

    Topics


    • California Business & Professions Code § 16600: Understanding its reach, its limits, and its effects
    • Non-solicit agreements: What California does and does not allow
    • Confidential & Proprietary Information Agreements: Balancing a company’s interest in broad and all-inclusive protection against the limits imposed by law, the realities of business, and principles of contract
    • Choice of Law and Venue Provisions: Avoiding California law and California courts
