    • Gain practical tips on critical evidentiary disputes, including issues of damage offsets, after-acquired evidence, admissibility of experts on damages or injuries, employee-character evidence, “me-too” evidence of other employee allegations, performance documentation from a current or subsequent employer, and other hotly contested evidentiary matters.

    • Explore many of the issues surrounding attorneys’ personal and professional use of social media with direct reference to the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Responsibility. 
    • Discover the mistakes in handling leaves that will almost certainly result in a company being sued, including failing to reinstate an employee following a leave; firing an employee who fails to return from FMLA leave; terminating an employee who is deemed “permanently disabled” under workers’ compensation laws; and changing an employee’s job duties while he/she is away on leave.

    Collapse Communicating Across Generations: Improve your skills with clients, in the courtroom and even with your family (Philadelphia, Simulcasts, Live Webcast)

    Traditionalists/Baby Boomers/Generation X/Millennials/Cuspers

    What do these terms mean, why do they matter and how can you communicate across generations whose life experiences, expectations and values differ greatly?

     

    Communicating with Clients, Co-Workers, Adversaries, Judges and Juries

    If you practice law, then communication is at the heart of your business – whether you are a transactional negotiator, a trial lawyer or in-house counsel. If communication style needs to vary with the audience, then how do you communicate with a mixed group that spans multiple generations? Throughout your legal career and your personal life, there will be situations where your message must reach a diverse age group and do so effectively and succinctly.

     

    Learn from the Experts

    Join psychologist and jury consultant Ann Greeley, together with state court and federal judges, for their expert insights on the challenges of communicating across generations. Improve your skills with your clients, in the courtroom and even with your family members. Learn to think differently and see the world through the filters of other generations. Identify what shared life experiences and changes in the world have helped to make each generation alike and different. Dispel some myths and walk away with a new skill set that allows you to use generational differences to your advantage.
