Oct 28: Ethical Issues in Working with Pro Bono Clients in 2016 (Webcast)

Wed, 09/07/2016 - 9:05am
The Practising Law Institute is offering a free webcast of a live presentation from San Francisco entitled Ethical Issues in Working with Pro Bono Clients in 2016 on October 28, 2016 at 1:00 pm Eastern. Pro Bono clients are like any other clients in many ways. But some Pro Bono clients present ethical issues for attorneys that are often different than presented by fee-paying or contingent fee clients. Lawyers sometimes face difficult questions about defining who the client is, communication with clients, clients with diminished capacity, conflicts with fee-paying clients, and many others. Representation of nonprofit organizations also can present difficult ethical issues not faced with most for profit organizations. As part of the ABA’s National Celebrate Pro Bono Week, please join Toby J. Rothschild, Of Counsel to OneJustice and retired general counsel of the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, for a free One-Hour Briefing as the following topics are addressed: What is Pro Bono? What ethical issues can arise in representation of Pro Bono clients? How can you make sure your representation is conducted within the Rules of Professional Conduct?

Nov 14: Advocating for Veterans: The Basics on VA Benefits, Discharge Upgrades and Veteran Cultural Competency 2016 (Free Webcast)

Mon, 08/29/2016 - 9:15am
The Practising Law Institute will be offering a free webcast of a live presentation from San Francisco entitled Advocating for Veterans: The Basics on VA Benefits, Discharge Upgrades and Veteran Cultural Competency 2016 on November 14, 2016 from 12:00 pm to 8;00 pm. IMPORTANT! If you get accredited by the VA before you attend this training, the first three hours will satisfy the VA’s CLE requirement. Attorneys and other advocates must be accredited to practice before the VA. To obtain accreditation you must complete this form: http://www.va.gov/vaforms/va/pdf/VA21a.pdf. Accreditation by the VA may take several weeks, so do not delay filing your application. You can speed up the process by emailing the form to OGCAccreditationMailbox@va.gov. Within 12 months after accreditation you are required to complete three hours of qualifying CLE. The morning session of this program satisfies that requirement, but only if you have already received your accreditation from the VA. If you have not received it, you should still watch this program, but keep in mind that you will need to complete three additional hours of CLE within 12 months after receiving your accreditation. Attorneys and other advocates who become accredited will be listed on a national VA list, and are entitled to represent veterans in their claims for benefits, on a pro bono basis, and for attorney’s fees on appeals, where they are available. Why You Should Attend There are over 21 million veterans in the U.S.; many of them are not aware of the benefits to which they are entitled. Medical and financial assistance are available to those who have served in the military, but many veterans most in need are not receiving VA benefits. Navigating the VA claims system and applying for discharge upgrades before the Department of Defense are difficult and complex processes. Attorneys play an essential role in removing barriers to VA benefits, such as: Lack of evidence to “service-connect” their injuries or disabilities. Lack of current medical or mental health evidence documenting severity of symptoms for accurate disability ratings. VA eligibility determinations for those given less than fully honorable discharges for behaviors that were related to minor disciplinary infractions or symptoms of post traumatic stress or other service-related disabilities. What You Will Learn Nearly 45% of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan seek compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for service related injuries; 30% of these veterans who file for VA benefits include claims for Post-Traumatic Stress. Many of those who should receive benefits will be denied. All of them will wait months or years for the VA to issue decisions on their claims. Learn how to navigate the VA claims process and to become an effective advocate for veterans in need. This all-day program will provide an overview of VA disability law and military discharge review law. You will gain an understanding of different types of military discharges, why they are important, and how you can help veterans with less than Honorable discharges. The three one-hour opening sessions provide the basics you need to represent veterans before the VA, including veteran cultural competency. The morning session fulfills the VA’s requirement for qualifying CLE within the first 12 months of your VA accreditation. The 4:45 session, Special Issues in VA Benefits Representation will explore more complex legal issues that arise in VA benefits law, including the interactions between VA benefits and other public benefits, such as SSI and SSDI. The 5:45 to 8:00 sessions will provide attorneys with the tools that they need to assist veterans in upgrading their discharge status and removing stigmatizing information from their discharge documents. Who Should Attend Attorneys seeking meaningful pro bono opportunities and any advocate who wants to help change the life of a veteran with a disability. Attorneys seeking to meet VA’s CLE requirements for new and continuing VA accreditation should also attend. Finally, attorneys who hope to expand their practice areas to include veterans’ cases where fees are available should register for one or more of the sessions. More Information and Registration
