Practice and Procedure

NO CLE - Tech Tock, Tech Tock: New Technologies and the Countdown to Your Ethical Demise

Social media and other new technologies are part of the legal landscape, and it’s all charging forward — but the ethics rules are struggling to keep up. Sure, there are obvious concerns that everyone is talking about (like confidentiality (Rule 1.1)), but there are hidden hazards that few people consider (trial publicity (Rule 3.6) concerns — really?). Join “the CLE Performer” Stuart Teicher and legal ethics counsel Erika Stillabower as they discuss ethics opinions from across the country, and their impact on Rules 1.3 (diligence) and 7.2 (advertising), in a substantive-but-amusing manner.

NO CLE - Litigation: Expert Cross-Examination Stratego!

Challenging an expert witness requires more than just wondering what questions to ask on cross-examination. Is the expert witness even an expert in the right subject matter? Should the expert be deposed before trial and challenged before he or she takes the stand, or would cross-examination without giving the expert the clues that come with deposition questions present the best opportunity to defuse the weight of the expert’s opinion? How can the trial lawyer prepare for cross-examination of an expert and contain the damage done on direct examination of the expert?
