ART LAW

CLE credit: 2.5 pp & 0.5 ethics

Live program: $235 Member/ $345 Nonmember

Art Law issues cut across many practice areas; however, the phrase “Art Law” is

something of a misnomer. While there are some statutes and regulations that apply

specifically to art matters, what we are usually talking about when we speak about

“Art Law” is the application of some other body of law – e.g. contract law, copyright

law, the law of agency, the Uniform Commercial Code, etc. – to art matters. At this

program a panel of experienced practitioners will provide the basics of “art law”

including: Art Transactions (title and authenticity issues), Copyright, Moral Rights

and other IP Issues, Lending with Art as Collateral, Representing Artists, and Trust,

Estate and Foundation Matters. This program is intended for those who practice

intellectual property law, trust and estates law and litigators, as well as those who have

clients in the art industry, and business executives in the art industry.

Art remains one of the most challenging asset classes to convey in a tax-efficient

manner that reflects the collector’s intent. This panel discussion will address both

inter vivos and testamentary transfers and case law developments regarding the

valuation of specific objects as well as fractional interests in an art collection. Topics

will include means of generating liquidity from art, like-kind exchanges, negotiation

considerations for donating art to institutions, and the application of common estate

implications of creating a private foundation as a receptacle for part or all of the

collection.

Do you have clients with aviation-related legal needs that are outside your practice

clear zone?

Are you a junior or veteran aviation attorney looking to expand your depth?

Are you a non-aviation lawyer interested in practicing aviation law?

The New York Metro area is the busiest air transportation hub in the United States,

with nearly 53 million annual enplanements at JFK, LaGuardia and Newark alone.

Add to that the myriad of suburban, feeder and general aviation airports in New

Jersey, Long Island and Westchester, and chances are that one or more of your clients

will have an aviation-related need. Will you be able to meet their needs?

Whether it’s a commercial or retail client acquiring real estate or doing business at or

near an airport or your biggest corporate or private client considering an on-demand

air charter, fractional ownership, lease, or purchase of a corporate jet, or simply a

private citizen subjected to excessive airport security, delays or lost baggage, this

course offers a valuable briefing on the practical applications of aviation law. This

not-to-be-missed program (and companion written materials) will touch upon issues

ranging from contractual and regulatory to passenger protections, federal preemption,

and liability limitations in connection with domestic and international air travel.

Live program: $695 Member/$815 Nonmember

Years after the financial crisis and the burst of the housing bubble, securities

litigation and enforcement proceedings arising from these events continue to

multiply. Investors and insurers have sued issuers, underwriters, mortgage servicers

and credit rating agencies. At the same time, federal and state regulators have

commenced numerous, parallel investigations and enforcement actions. Against

this backdrop, recent U.S. Supreme Court and federal circuit court opinions have

dramatically changed the securities litigation landscape.

This full-day program will provide a comprehensive overview of recent trends,

developments and cutting-edge issues in securities litigation and enforcement.

The panels will include prominent securities litigators, high-level enforcement

officials, senior in-house counsel, academics and economists. The morning

plenary session will cover hot button issues and developments in mortgagebacked

securities litigation. The afternoon plenary session will provide an update

on the enforcement activities of the SEC, PCAOB, CFTC and New York State

Attorney General’s Office. Break-out sessions will explore: the continuing impact

of Morrison v. National Australia Bank on litigation involving cross-border securities

transactions; effective ways to use expert witnesses and consultants in litigation and

enforcement proceedings; key considerations and strategies for handling regulatory

investigations; and the impact of recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions on securities

litigation strategies and tactics.

Overseas Securities & Other Fraud Risks: Analysis of

Recent Developments

Tuesday, October 23 9-11 a.m.

CLE credit: 2.0 total: breakdown tbd

Live Program: $205 Member/ $315 Nonmember

From rogue trading and false accounting to the hiding of investment losses, foreign

markets proved to be fertile ground for securities and other fraud in 2011. Last

year, companies across the globe were hit by investigations that resulted in potential

de-listings and billions of dollars in losses in shareholder value. Meanwhile, dozens of

Chinese companies went public in the U.S. only to see their value plummet, and produce

a wave of regulator inquiries and class-action lawsuits. With European companies

subjected to a prolonged credit crisis and their Asian counterparts operating under a

cloud of economic uncertainty in China, it is apparent that significant fraud risk will

continue to exist overseas.

This session will feature a panel discussion composed of consultants and legal experts

who will:

• Highlight examples of fraud abroad such as Olympus, UBS, and Chinese

companies undergoing reverse mergers

• Discuss the impact of the infiltration of U.S.-style regulatory practices into

foreign markets and how it has reshaped the way countries prosecute fraud

• Explore the implications of overseas fraud

• Identify warning signs or other “hot topics” related to overseas fraud

CLE credit: 4.0 total: breakdown tbd

Live Program: $335 Member/$445 Nonmember

Robert C. Kern, Jr.

In this seminar an experienced panel will provide a practical introduction to LLCs.

The panel will compare the LLC to corporations (including S corporations) as well

as partnerships and limited partnerships, citing the advantages and disadvantages

of each such entity and how such advantages and disadvantages can shape one’s

choice-of-entity decision to utilize an LLC. The panel will walk through the mechanics

of forming an LLC including the drafting of the basic operating agreement. Working

from actual operating agreements, the panel will review managerial, voting, governance

and control structures(including consents and tie-breaker arrangements), typical

as well as unique capital structures (including preferred interests, profits interests

and class interests) and buy-outs and exit strategies (including drag-alongs and

tag-alongs and buy-outs upon death). The panel will discuss the use of equity-based

incentive compensation arrangements in the context of an LLC and compare them

to traditional corporate stock option plans. Throughout its presentation the panel will

highlight tax issues and benefits that arise from the utilization of an LLC, discuss new

developments in the area of LLC law and provide real-world examples of the use of

LLCs in specific businesses and contexts. This program’s updated content will provide CLE

credit to all attendees, even if they attended in the past.

Insider Trading 2012: Trends & Developments in the

Investigation, Prosecution & Defense of Insider Trading

Cases

Monday, October 15 6-8 p.m.

CLE credit: 2.0 pp

Live Program: $215 Member/ $325 Nonmember

In the past three years, insider trading has been one of the

highest enforcement priorities for both the SEC and DOJ.

Both agencies have devoted unprecedented resources to

investigating insider trading violations, employed wiretaps

and other aggressive investigative techniques, and ventured

into new substantive territories. The result has been an

unprecedented number of criminal and civil investigations

Jodi Misher Peikin and prosecutions.

At this program, a panel of experts from government,

industry, and law firms will discuss the substantive law of

insider trading, with a particular focus on the new frontiers

being explored in recent cases. The course will cover the

following topics, among others: the core principles and

elements of insider trading violations, including under Sections

10(b) and Section 14(e), and the mail and wire fraud statutes;

the interplay of Reg FD and Rule 10b-5; the legitimacy of

trading on information obtained from company insiders; the

Steve R. Peikin line between civil and criminal insider trading violations; and

current and future DOJ and SEC investigative priorities.

Live Program: $195 Member/$305 Nonmember

The design, implementation and modification of employment and separation

agreements often implicate issues under tax and employment laws. In reviewing

these contracts, ERISA attorneys may encounter unfamiliar employment issues, and

employment lawyers may be faced with ERISA concepts outside of their regular

practice. In the context of employment contracts, however, both types of issues are

of relevance to both types of attorneys. This primer will seek to provide an overview

of the various ERISA, tax and employment law considerations that are commonly

raised by employment and severance agreements, for the practitioner whose

day-to-day expertise does not span all of these areas. The panelists will walk the

attendees through an employment contract and a severance contract from the

perspective of both employment and benefits lawyers. This program is essential

for midlevel attorneys and may also serve as a nice refresher for more experienced

professionals.

The relationship between a policyholder and an insurer can become complicated in

the event of a claim. A policyholder must satisfy certain conditions before coverage

is considered under a policy and certain duties on the part of an insurer are triggered.

Policyholders and insurers don't always agree when questions, and the extent, of

coverage are presented. Bearing in mind the implied covenants to act in good faith

may be mutual, differences of opinion on coverage can sometimes lead to coverage

litigation including claims for extra-contractual damages. This program will present

a fair and balanced view of the policyholder's and insurer's respective views on these

issues, as well as a discussion of the pertinent laws in New York and New Jersey.

Many cases in today’s complex legal marketplace require lawyers to work in teams

and with in-house counsel. This scenario presents situations where some lawyers on

the team are supervising other attorneys or are themselves being supervised. In this

situation, what happens when a junior lawyer receives instructions to engage in what

he believes is unethical or illegal conduct from a supervising attorney or a valued

client? What happens when a partner receives instructions from a client that she

believes are unethical? The answer, social psychologists tell us, is that subordinates are

much more likely to do what they are told than we would like to believe.

This unique program will present current and practical themes involved in civil

litigation and corporate practice, followed by vignettes and panel discussions that

illustrate and analyze common ethical dilemmas faced by attorneys. The panel will

lead an interactive discussion that explores the many legal and ethical issues that arise

when attorneys receive instructions or requests they believe are not ethical, and offer

insights on how to deal with these issues.

For those of you who attended this program previously, you will not want to miss

this year’s updated program.

Use of Social Media in the Workplace: What Employers &

Employees Can & Cannot Do

Wednesday, November 28 6-8 p.m.

CLE credit: 2.0 total: breakdown tbd

Live Program: $205 Member/$315 Nonmember

Can a worker be fired for posting derogatory comments about his or her workplace

on Facebook? Can an employer set a policy which prohibits its workers from

posting such comments or speaking to the media or other outside parties about their

conditions of employment? Since employees in both union and nonunion shops

began using social media to talk and even rant about their jobs, the National Labor

Relations Board (“NLRB”) has been busy interpreting the meaning of “protected

concerted activity” in cyberspace. In addition to defining traditional terms in a new

age, the NLRB has also had the challenge of preserving the integrity of protected

concerted activity under the National Labor Relations Act in a widely publicized

decision D.R. Horton Inc., 357 NLRB No. 184 (2012). This case of first impression

invalidated an arbitration agreement that prevented employees from engaging in the

concerted protected activity of filing either class action or collective action lawsuits

with co-workers. The case required instead they agree to arbitrate such claims solely

on an individual basis. The Horton decision came on the heels of the Supreme Court

decision in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, 131 S. Ct. 1740 (2011), which enforced

a class action waiver agreement but in a non - employment setting. A distinguished

panel of labor and employment practitioners will explore those issues, and advise you

on how you can best represent your client.

Timothy P. Terrell

This is not your typical legal writing program. It does not focus on the basic skills of

good legal writing – instead, it focuses on the advanced skills needed by lawyers who

oversee the writing of other lawyers. While good firms always include in their ranks

many good writers, those lawyers are pressed for time and frequently respond to

drafts not by requesting another effort by the author, but by rewriting the document

themselves.

To truly “manage” the writing of others - to communicate edits and comments when

everyone is under pressure to be productive - supervising lawyers need an effective

and efficient way to give feedback that is quick, insightful, and instructive. This skill

requires a new vocabulary and approach to editing that any experienced lawyer with

good writing skills can learn. Attend this advanced, one-of-a kind program and

get time-saving tips for managing the legal writing of others, so that they do

the writing, not you.

classic skills of rhetoric to your own writing to create sharper, more powerful

Using actual film footage, re-creations, photos, and verbatim trial transcripts,

this unique program offers an unforgettable educational experience. See

excerpts from the O.J. Simpson trial, hear Clarence Darrow cross-examine William

Jennings Bryan in the Scopes “Monkey Trial,” view the cross-examination of Herman

Goering at the Nuremberg trials, and listen to Clarence Darrow’s closing argument in

the Leopold and Loeb trial. Learn the ethics of dealing with difficult witnesses and

“I have been the Chairman of the Cooperative and Condominium Law Committee of

the New York City Bar Association for the past two years, and prior to that, I was the

Chairman of that Committee’s Continuing Education Sub-Committee and before that, I

lectured at numerous NYC Bar CLE programs. In all of this time, the staff of the City

Bar has been extremely helpful, dedicated and professional. Having read the comments of

those in attendance during those past 12 years, I can attest to the fact that those who attend

the Coop/Condo CLE programs at the City Bar are extremely satisfied and believe that

these courses are essential to their growth as a member of the bar. Besides the CLEs, the

City Bar has events and functions which make it the perfect place for a New York lawyer

Transitional Credit

Newly admitted attorneys are required to take live (traditional format) CLE courses

that offer transitional credit, which the majority of our programs provide. Credit is

not available for newly admitted attorneys for non-traditional course formats such as

video replays, CDs, DVDs, audio files or online programs. Newly admitted attorneys

must fulfill their CLE requirements through live classroom instruction. Programs that

do not provide transitional credit are listed as non-transitional. Courses are sometimes

referred to as “Bridge-the-Gap” programs because they are directed at bridging the

gap between law school and the day-to-day practice of law. Bridge-the-Gap courses

are not limited to newly admitted attorneys.

For live programs & video replays, refunds & program credits are available provided

cancellation is made in writing & received by the City Bar Center prior to the program.
