    Collapse Communicating Across Generations: Skills for the courtroom and with diverse age groups (Pottsville)

    Understand and communicate effectively with your audience – the judge, jury, witness or client!

    If you practice law, then being an effective communicator is at the heart of your business – whether you are a transactional negotiator, a trial lawyer or in-house counsel.  Lawyers as the ultimate communicators are challenged to talk to people at all stages of their lives--from the "almost retiree" to the "still teen" entering the workplace or the courtroom.  Litigators have a challenge in that they have to talk to those various generations in the jury box-- where the savvy litigator knows that the way that jurors hear the evidence is filtered through their generational experiences, as well as the developmental life stages and cognitive functioning that affect jurors’ perspectives.

     

    Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, Cuspers

    You’ll examine what these terms mean, why they matter and how you can communicate across generations whose life experiences, expectations and values differ greatly.

     

    Hear from the experts

    Psychologist and jury consultant Dr. Ann Greeley, together with state court and federal judges, will share their insights and perspectives so you can:

    • Discover how to reach a diverse age group and do so effectively and with their worldview in mind
    • Learn to how to avoid being trapped in your own generation with the inherent blinders and blocks that entails;
    • Identify what shared life experiences and changes make each generation unique and what they need to hear and understand information; how visuals impact different generations; and how to use that to make things work for various groups of listeners
    • Walk away with a new skill set that allows you to use generational differences to your advantage

    Collapse New, Evolving Law in Pa. about Pharmaceuticals and Medical Device Products: Instructing a Jury Post-<em>Lance</em> (podcast w/credit)

    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s 2014 decision of Lance v. Wyeth created room for interpretation regarding negligence in marketing of dangerous brand-name prescription drugs.

    Attorneys with prescription and pharmaceutical cases and litigators will further understand the impact of the case and gain insight from a renowned litigator who has focused on complex pharmaceutical products liability and class action defense cases. Some of the questions and points covered in this one-hour course include:

    • In what ways do prescription products differ from products subject to strict liability?
      • Discussion of Restatement (Second) of Torts §402A, comment k (1965) and its applicability to design defect claims
    • Are devices treated the same way as pharmaceuticals?
    • Why isn’t there a duty to warn the patient directly?
      • Discussion of the learned intermediary doctrine
    • The debate about Lance - how did that case change the landscape of pharma/device law and what are the parameters to which it is subject?
    • What does Lance mean by “too harmful to be used by anyone” and how does it affect prescription drugs and devices?
