  • Mar 27, 2019

    Dear Colleague: Please join the Princeton Bar Association on Wed. March 27th for a CLE luncheon on essential intellectual property issues for the general practitioner.

    When it comes to intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights), most general praactitioners and most clients have very little understanding of the actual issues. Rather, most tend to believe popular misconceptions. These misconceptions can easily cause a company to go out of business and make a lawyer vulnerable to malpractice.  There are different types of patents, trademarks and copyrights. Each has a purpose. The general practitioner needs to know the basic issues involved in obtaining and protecting intellectual property and applying those IP rights through existing systems, such as the Amazon brand registry program and U.S. Customs in order to help clients start and grow their businesses.

    Eric LaMorte, Esq. is an attorney who has exclusively practiced intellectual property law for 30 years. In that time, Mr. LaMorte has obtained over 1000 patents and over 1000 registered trademarks and has counseled hundreds of companies on matters involving intellectual property.

    Lunch: A delicious gourmet lunch will be served.

    CLE Credit: Participants will receive a certificate valid for 1 CLE credit certified in PA and valid for 1 reciprocal credit in New Jersey, New York and any other state that accepts PA CLE credits in reciprocity. Certification pending.

    Please join us for our November luncheon featuring Professor Kevin Michels speaking on attorney ethics and The Hidden Value of Lawyers. This program is anticipated to be approved for 1 CLE ethics credit and will be our last ethics CLE of the year.  As always, a gourmet lunch will be served.
    Presentation Summary.
    Although lawyers rightly prize their knowledge of law and legal procedures, they sometimes overlook another capacity developed through the study and practice of law. Our ethical reasoning capacities have much to do with what makes us great practitioners, leaders, and agents of change. We will examine how the attorney’s capacity to reason about questions of ethics and fairness helps the lawyer in the traditional representation role, as counsel in the organization setting, and as leader and innovator.
    About our Speaker.
    Kevin Michels is a Professor at The College of New Jersey, where he directs the School of Business Center for Innovation and Ethics. Prior to that, he held the Curran Chair in Legal Ethics and Professionalism at Gonzaga Law School in Spokane, Washington, first as a visiting associate professor and later as a tenured associate professor. He is the author of New Jersey Attorney Ethics (Gann Law Books) and numerous law review articles. He served as law clerk to Justice Robert L. Clifford of the New Jersey Supreme Court for the 1986-87 term and, prior to joining academia, he practiced law with Michels & Hockenjos, L.L.C. He served on the New Jersey Supreme Court Commission on the Rules of Professional Conduct, and has lectured widely on legal ethics and professionalism. He is an elected member of the American Law Institute.

    What would it mean to your organization if you could avoid and overcome the dysfunction that results from gender and racial inequality?  What if you could address the not-so-hidden biases that keep us from living and working from a place of integrity? Imagine if we could knock down those barriers and work together more effectively –  giving and receiving support, training, referrals – and actually LIKING one another in a productive and collaborative work environment.

    Learn to uncover deep-rooted limiting beliefs and pre-suppositions and create a meaningful dialogue to reveal the solutions that can be immediately and effectively applied to your organization.

    • Raising awareness of our own personal biases
    • Leadership skills that can shift organizational culture
    • Overcoming fear of conflict in addressing bias
    • Specific organizational policies that prevent bias

    By understanding how to overcome our natural biases, we can create an organization with strong morale, empowered staff at all levels, creating a safe, open and honest work  environment that will attract top talent and surely have a positive impact on your organization’s profitability.

    Please join us for our monthly CLE luncheon featuring the esteemed Judge Carchman speaking on Judicial Ethics: On & Off the Bench. All participants with receive a certificate valid for 1 CLE ethics credit and a gourmet lunch will be served.  This course is designed for lawyers in all practice areas and levels.

    While the judiciary is one of three branches of our tri-partite form of government, the public perceives the judiciary as different with an expectation that judges will conduct themselves both on and off the bench in a way that is different from those in the executive or legislative branches of government. Judges are not generally seen as politicians but as those charged with the responsibility of ensuring fairness in the judicial process to the end that decisions reflect the goal of achieving justice in every case.  Judges are subject to a separate ethical code from lawyers and those in the other branches of government. The Code of Judicial Conduct governs a judge’s conduct in both a judge’s professional capacity and private life, and New Jersey’s version of the CJC imposes the strictest limitations in the country on judges activities off the bench.  This lecture will explore the ethical constraints on judges with an emphasis on extrajudicial conduct.  We will explore the CDC as well as cases that have addressed ethical issues as applied to judges as well as their personal and professional relationship with the public and specifically, the lawyers that they deal with on a daily basis.
