AABANY at the Trial of Two Pizzas and the Heart Mountain Trial Reenactment

At the Trial of Two Pizzas, to be held during the ABA Annual Meeting in New York City starting on August 10, an old rivalry will be put to rest at last. Both New York thin crust pizza and Chicago deep dish pizza are well-loved, but only one can be the best. Presided by AABANY-member Hon. Doris Ling-Cohan, the Trial of Two Pizzas will take place at the New York Hilton Midtown on Thursday, August 10th. 

The Trial of Two Pizzas is included in the CLE in the City Series, as part of the ABA Annual Meeting. Both ABA and non-ABA members can sign up for just $25 per program, and every program comes with access to the Trial of Two Pizzas on August 10th. 

Beyond the Trial of Two Pizzas, CLE in the City participants can partake in programs from twelve ABA tracks on topics ranging from family law to the United Nations, from Thursday, August 10th to Friday, August 11th. Earn up to 4.5 CLE credits, meet lawyers from around the world, and benefit from programs held at top law firms and venues throughout Manhattan. AABANY will be performing a reenactment of the Heart Mountain Draft Resisters Trial on August 10th from 2:00 to 3:30 PM at Fordham Law School as part of CLE in the City.

SOLO & SMALL FIRM COMMITTEE WEBINAR | THINGS THAT GO BUMP ON THE INTERNET

Social media plays a significant role in today’s society and has changed how we market law practices and access information. Effective and ethical lawyering means navigating the dangers that lurk for lawyers on social media, and also the multitude of electronic tools that may seem appealing and helpful in our zeal to obtain the best results for our clients. A misstep comes with a disciplinary price tag. Attendees will learn do’s and don’ts, helpful tips and guidance regarding the ethics of self-promotion on the internet, LinkedIn endorsements, investigating and manipulating online data and evidence, astroturfing, Web bugs, and Internet scams involving settlement funds.

Date and Time
