The lecture includes cost benefit analysis that must be taken into account upon accepting a case and whether a case is worth pursuing into trial or better settled earlier on.

Description

ADHD has become the go-to diagnosis for misbehaving children, inattentive teenagers and maladjusted adults. But where it’s most prevalent is in the prison system, affecting nearly 50% of the population and typically presenting along with co-occurring conditions such as learning disabilities and other risk factors for antisocial and criminal behavior. This CLE course will assess the impact of ADHD and other mental health conditions on these types of behaviors, substance abuse, and other types of addiction. The course will explain the legal issues that arise in the intersection between school discipline, education law and criminal procedure. The presentation sheds light on school disciplinary hearings, manifestation determination and access to school records in pursuit of treatment based outcomes, while examining constitutional and other legal issues that arise in arrests of school-age children and children with special needs and discuss practical strategies for effective representation of such defendants.

#You're Fired @Will: Social Media and Employment Law1$5008/10/2017N/A
This course is worth 1.2 hours in New Jersey and West Virginia.

Description

Employees talk about everything on social media. Their supervisors. Their clients. The pitch they worked on all night. While many of these comments are harmless, some violate workplace rules or threaten company interests.
But disciplining employee social media communications is not as easy as it sounds - even in "employment at will" situations. State and federal law protects certain types of online speech. In addition to the subject matter of the comments, you have to consider where and when the employee posted, and other factors. A mistake in discipline can put you in legal hot water.

Topics include:

  • Laws governing employee social media communications
  • When Facebook, Twitter and other social media posts are protected
  • Recent decisions on social media-based employment terminations
  • Distinguishing off-duty conduct from on-duty conduct
  • Weighing disciplinary action
  • Avoiding retaliation claims
  • Elements of a legal and effective social media policy
  • And much more
