Well, if you're going to miss me talking about the effect of the new federal rules on discovery and pleadings on patent litigation in Plano in November, or moderating a panel on trade secret litigation at the EDTX bench/bar in Plano (or opining online about the challenges of scratchbuilding the Apollo/Saturn V Launch Umbilical Tower in 1/200 scale) never fear - you can still catch me talking about cybersecurity for law firms with Robert L. King of Silicon Labs in Austin next month.
I am honored to be participating in UT Law’s 40th Annual Page Keeton Civil Litigation conference, scheduled for October 27-28 at the Four Seasons Hotel and Suites in Austin. Attached is a PDF of the program brochure. Download PL16_brochure
Leading litigators, judges, and law professors will be at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Austin to provide updates and analysis of important developments in civil litigation practice, with substantive coverage of practice tips, advocacy strategies, and important trends.
2016 Conference highlights:
· Get the latest updates on Texas civil procedure, changes in FRCP, and insurance law developments
· Hear premier Texas litigators discuss challenges and opportunities in the arenas of damages, contorts, and alternative dispute resolution in 21st century litigation
· Get a Texas Supreme Court Justice's point of view on significant decisions from the past term
· Learn tips for handling common issues that arise in litigation in the bankruptcy court and in civil litigation affected by bankruptcy
· Learn what lawyers and law firms need to know about data security to avoid losing clients and getting sued (this is my part)
· Look at important hearsay issues, with an emphasis on hearsay appearing in social and other electronic media
· Hear about the practicalities lawyers and courts face as jurors increasingly live online and have new expectations for access to the facts, and lawyers have new access into jurors’ lives
· Explore new opportunities in employment law for civil litigators
· Earn up to 3.50 hours of ethics credit
I hope to see you there. Meanwhile, I am available for WebEx presentations on the Saturn V LUT thing. Seriously. The LUT is the great white whale for baby boomer plastic modelers, and I am after it. Hard. (I have to have something to fall back on if this whole Dak Prescott thing doesn't work out).
