Oct 5 / Why We Play: Sports, Drugs, and Meanings

Oliver C. Schroeder Jr. Scholar-in-Residence Lecture presented by the Law-Medicine Center


Title:
"Why We Play: Sports, Drugs, and Meanings"

The controversy over elite athletes using anabolic steroids, growth hormone, and other performance enhancing drugs largely overlooks three crucial issues. First is the context of athletic competition, the forces that press athletes to consider using drugs, and the nearly universal desire among athletes for a "level playing field." Second is the far larger community of amateur athletes including tens of millions of young people. Third are a set of disputes over the meanings of key concepts in sport: What is a "level playing field" and is it achievable or even desirable? What constitutes fairness in sport? Why does sport accept, even need, seemingly arbitrary limits on equipment and other rules? And, finally, what makes sport worthwhile, a meaningful human endeavor: In other words, why do we play?

How would this be useful to lawyers? I'd take on issues of fairness and justice; social policy ideas like harm reduction strategies in drug policy; reflections on liberty, paternalism, and public health; off-label and non-therapeutic drug use, including use supervised or promoted by physicians.

Oct 2/ Cleveland, OH - Freedom from Religion: Rights and National Security

In his talk, Amos Guiora will discuss the topic of his book, Freedom from Religion. In his book, Prof. Guiora invites policy-makers and concerned citizens to consider an unusual technique for curtailing the threat of new terrorist attacks: curtailing religious freedom. He argues that Western and Middle Eastern tolerance of religious extremism has led to the current security crisis that our world now faces. By exploring the different policies and challenges arising in five countries (the U.S., The UK, the Netherlands, Turkey, and Israel), Prof. Guiora adds a novel argument to the global debate on religion's relationship to terror.

Sep 23/web (FL) - How to Work With Contract Lawyers


From 

http://legalresearchandwritingpro.com:

"On Thursday, September 23 at noon Eastern, I'll be presenting a 1-credit CLE webinar called How to Work With Contract Lawyers to Save Your Firm Money, Increase Profits and Get Your Life Back.
Outsourcing is the wave of the future. But it doesn't necessarily mean sending work overseas, and it's not just for big firms. Solos and small firms can garner many benefits by outsourcing substantive legal work to independent, US-based contract (a/k/a freelance) lawyers.
Topics covered in this course include:
  • Benefits of outsourcing work to a contract lawyer
  • How to find a contract attorney to work with
  • What a good contract lawyer should bring to the table
  • Ethical issues in the outsourcing relationship
This program will carry 1 CLE credit. (CLE accreditation will be supplied for Florida lawyers. A certificate of completion will be provided for lawyers in other states. Click here for information about obtaining CLE accreditation for this course in your state.)
The webinar is part of a series of complimentary practice-building and legal productivity webinars from RocketMatter, the leading online legal practice management and time tracking software solution for small to mid-size law firms.
Once again, that's Thursday, September 23 at noon (EDT). To register, click here."

Sep 23/web - Social Media & e-Discovery


from http://www.theposselist.com/2010/09/09/free-webinar-september-23-social-media-e-discovery-free-cle-credit/

"Virtual LegalTech is on September 23rd and one of the webinars is on social media and e-discovery.

The cross roads of social media and e-discovery are the new lawyer nightmare.  Posse List members across the whole e-discovery vortex –– the data collector vendors, the forensic experts, the contract attorneys, etc. —   are dealing with it.  With eDiscovery expenses on the rise and data volumes increasing rapidly, e-discovery can be challenging enough. 
However, with social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and LinkedIn having 100s of millions of users worldwide, this adds a new dimension to the challenge of managing ESI. 
The webinar is called "Social Media & eDiscovery: Untangling the Tweets for the Trials," and it's complimentary.    It is taking place in the Virtual Auditorium at Virtual LegalTech on September 23rd, from 4:00 – 5:00 pm ET. 
Among some of the questions being addressed: 
- Are social media sites discoverable?
- Should your organization be saving every "tweet" and web-page?
- What is reasonable and what could you be held accountable for?
- Can technology help manage these potential data sources?
The webinar is sponsored by Autonomy and the participants are: 
*  Jack Halprin, Esq., Vice President, eDiscovery & Compilance, Autonomy
*  Michael E. Lackey, Jr., Partner, Mayer Brown LLP
*  Honorable David J. Waxse, US District Court, District of Kansas
And you can earn free CLE credit. 
The whole Virtual LegalTech experience is helpful:  you can chat with vendors, see product demonstrations, collect information, network with colleagues and get the latest news from the ever-evolving legal industry. 
Registration is complimentary.  Follow this link to register and mention Priority Code VLSM2 when registering:
