Here now are the details for the upcoming CAPS CLE and Public Service Award Reception on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 as part of the NYSBA's Annual Meeting:
First up is CAP's CLE program which will be chock full of helpful information for lawyers practicing in the public interest sector. The morning program, beginning at 9:00am, will look back at the 2011-2012 United States Supreme Court term, highlighting the biggest decisions and looking ahead to the upcoming 2012-2013 term. This should be a great opportunity to get updated about important legal developments over the past year.
The afternoon program, beginning at 2:00pm, will be about social media and legal ethics. This part of the program will explore the most common uses of social media by lawyers in both the private and public sector, and examine the legal and ethical issues that are implicated by those uses. This is a good overview program for public sector attorneys looking to learn more about the opportunities and pitfalls of various online legal tools.
Finally, beginning at 5:30pm, CAPS will be hosting the award ceremony for this year's three recipients of the NYSBA Excellence in Public Service award:
