Session 1: Lessons From the Kennedy Assassination for Cross-Examination - If ever there was an event about which witnesses should have agreed, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was that event, but the eyewitnesses could not agree about even the most basic details of what happened in plain view in Dealey Plaza. Why and how do eyewitnesses fail to remember correctly even the most basic details of what they observed? What can trial lawyers learn from discrepancies in witness accounts of famous historical events, including the Kennedy assassination and the sinking of the Titanic?  Session 2: Texas’ Mental Health System: Overview and Local Solutions to Address Gaps - Hear an overview of the public mental health system in Texas and programs developed through the Southwest Texas Regional Advisory Council’s Crisis Collaborative. Examine the legal basis for this system, the roles of each type of facility, points of access, and funding. Learn how efforts to implement collaborative, local solutions at the cross-payor level have addressed crisis responses and are now attempting to move upstream to address access to care before mental health crises arise. Session 3: Insights into Cryptocurrency for Nonprofits - Join Armanino’s digital assets and nonprofit experts to learn about market trends in cryptocurrency; Bitcoin and how it can diversify your organization’s investment portfolio; and cryptocurrency opportunities for nonprofit organizations. Session 4: Gun Rights: An Overview of the Rights of Landlords and Tenants -  Session 5: Approaches to Privilege During Deposition Breaks - In an age of Zoom depositions, it is more important than ever to understand that different jurisdictions take different approaches the question of privilege during deposition breaks, with some disallowing any privilege at all once the deposition commences and others taking a more nuanced approach. Join Jason Boulette as he explores these different approaches, what they share in common, and where they differ sharply.

Session 1: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Legal and Ethical Considerations - How can people help AI to avoid picking up bad habits or worse, perpetuating discrimination? AI and ML are transforming people’s daily lives, but at the same time raise legal and ethical concerns like bias and discrimination, fairness, IP ownership, and data rights and privacy. This panel discusses real-world examples of such concerns, the role AI and ML systems may play, and the associated legal implications. Session 2: Prudently Picking Your E-Discovery Team: Vendors, Forensics Experts, and More Session 3: Storytelling and Themes - The power of a simple story, it can transform the room, transform your audience, transform you. Session 4:  A Conversation with Brittany K. Barnett: Attorney, Author, and Entrepreneur - Hear attorney, author, and entreprenuer, Brittany K. Barnett, discuss her experience and advice for others as a founder of two nonprofit organizations, as pro bono counsel representing clients incarcerated in federal prison, and as founder of social enterprises devoted to providing supports and resources to formerly incarcertated individuals.  Session 5: Fraud Is Now Legal in Texas (for Some People) - Three Texas intermediate appellate courts have held that corporate actors—directors, officers, managers, shareholders, and probably common employees and agents—are immune from personal liability for the fraud and misrepresentation these actors commit as long as the deceit relates to or arises from a contractual obligation of the corporation. Two and maybe three Texas appellate courts have rejected this immunity, and federal courts have also split. Courts adopting immunity claim the authority of a statute, but this immunity cannot be justified by the statute's language or history, and adopting it creates (probably unnoticed) results that confirm the legislature never intended it.

    on point and delivered effectively

    The supporting materials for "too many entities" was lacking. The real estate fixes was an excellent program. Disaster Planning was a bit more general, but having rebuilt my practice after Harvey in Rockport, my knowledge is a bit more in depth in some areas. I also was on the State Bar FEMA committee back when we had one in the mid 1990s. Learned a lot from the tornado in Fort Worth and the Houston floods.
