    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.

    Sessions

    Day 1 (April 19th) – Philadelphia & simulcast

    • 21st Century Extended Family Issues
      Join us in the opening plenary session as we tackle the growing issues of families in the 21st Century. Among the many topics to be discussed, we will explore the rights and responsibilities of grandparents and other third parties in both custody and support matters. We will focus on the ever-changing nature of modern families and discuss what “family law” might look like as we move into the future.
    • Passports & International Travel
      Travel around the world with this panel discussion of issues facing family law practitioners on a regular basis. As our world becomes a smaller place, issues involving international travel and relocation become more prevalent for family law attorneys advising clients with children. Using hypotheticals and real life experiences, the panel will guide you from start to finish, whether your client is seeking to travel or concerned about allowing the other parent to travel internationally. Discover how to request safeguards to be put in place before travel and what to do when travel goes wrong. Learn how to register and enforce a foreign order in the United States and abroad. The panel will also discuss the Hague Convention on child abduction.
    • Art of Cross Examination
      Through the use of popular clips from TV shows and movies, as well as the recreation of real life cross-examinations by some of Pennsylvania’s most prominent civil litigators, Judge Bernstein brings his renowned style of courtroom presentation to the family law environment. Join one of Pennsylvania’s foremost authorities on evidence and cross-examination for an insightful and entertaining program providing keys to effective and compelling cross-examination.
    • Ethics and Civility in Family Law
      This session will cover the hot topics on relevant ethical, disciplinary and malpractice issues to avoid in family law, including how to spot and mitigate troubling situations before they get you in trouble.
    • Beginners’ Track: Custody/PFA/Support/Divorce (Philadelphia only)
      However you spend your working day – estate, criminal, real estate or civil – you undoubtedly encounter a question concerning family law issues from a client. Attend and learn guidelines for support, custody, divorce and protection from abuse. Geared specifically to the lawyer whose practice does not focus primarily on family law. Hear from a panel of experienced family law practitioners as they provide insights and practical tips so you are better prepared to assist your clients and understand what to avoid.

     

    Day 2 (April 20th) – Philadelphia & simulcast

    • Evolving Support Cases
      This session will guide the practitioner through a support case from A to Z, with an in-depth look at: what comprises income of both the traditional and non-traditional earner; what to ask for in discovery; how to calculate net income available for support; and how to read a tax return (both business and personal) to identify and determine appropriate add-backs to and deductions from income and earning capacity and deviation arguments.
    • Family Law Update/Case Law Update
      The updates are a longtime favorite of attendees to keep their family law practice current on recent case law developments in custody, support and equitable distribution. This interactive panel will offer their vast experience and provide practical pointers on how recent decisions impact your daily family law practice.

     

    Workshop choices will determine whether credits are in substantive law, practice and procedure or ethics.

    The unique nature of title insurance makes claims handling and litigating challenging, but it also allows one to be creative in solving title problems. Join a panel of experienced attorneys who investigate and litigate these claims, as they walk you through the basic steps of filing and defending a claim.

     

    A “nuts and bolts” look at—

    • The title insurance policy itself—what it is, who it benefits, coverage exceptions and limitations
    • The “top ten” title insurance claims from a lender’s policy perspective—including unrecorded mortgages, mortgages with missing or insufficient legal descriptions, mortgages and other liens from prior owners remaining of record
    • Initiating a claim—how and when to initiate a claim, what support to include with the claim, the “etiquette” for contacting the title insurer
    • The response of the title insurer to a claim—options, what the claimant can expect to hear.
    • Resolving the claim—typical tactics, communication with assigned counsel
