Ethically Dealing with Substance Abuse and Addiction in the Legal Profession (12/15/2020)

Program Number: 30276 Presenter: Joan Bibelhausen, JD

Studies show that lawyers are at greater risk for alcohol and other substance use disorders, depression, other mental illness, and stress than members of other professions or the general population. This stress has been exacerbated in 2020 as lawyers are on the front lines in our nation’s crises and major events. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness. By understanding lawyer stress, this continuum, and the facts about addiction and mental illness, lawyers can reduce their risk, encounter fewer ethical challenges, and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a problem. Signs, symptoms, risk factors and recovery regarding these problems will be presented. The discussion will include competence (1.1), diligence (1.3), communication (1.4) and other ethical considerations and the program will offer timely tools to reduce risk as well as information on lawyer assistance programs and other resources.

The Intersection Between Law & Medicine (11/05/2020)

Program Number: 30274 Presenter: Clifford A. Rieders, Esq.

This subject is a culmination of many years’ lecturing on the subject of law and medicine and how the two interact. Subjects covered include peer review; risks and complications; the value of good bedside manners; how to avoid medical malpractice; what to do about obstructive and difficult conduct; and many other areas. The course is useful not only to lawyers, but also healthcare professionals. The concept is that, except for a few physicians, much of what occurs in the law is alien to the medical profession. Likewise, lawyers have some difficulty in understanding the medical world. There is an intersection between these two fields based upon the requirement to work together on behalf of patients, medicine and the legal system. This seminar is intended to explore some of those topics in a novel, interesting and thoughtful manner.

In the Cannabis Industry, Profitability and Data Privacy/Security go Hand-in-Hand (09/17/2020)

Program Number: 30200 Presenter: Rebecca L. Rakoski, Esq.

As the legalized cannabis industry takes its place amongst other highly highly profitable mainstream businesses it is impossible to overlook the cybersecurity and data privacy issues that uniquely affect the industry and its profitability. The issues surrounding legalized cannabis and data security create a multi-front battle that can be incredibly challenging from a legal and technological perspective. The fact that the cannabis industry has intertwining issues of highly sensitive data, regulatory oversight and mandatory data collection requirements creates a very distinctive challenge for the profitability of those businesses. But many of those challenges can be addressed using some of the same practices and solutions. Preserving profit margins and exploring innovation are fundamental to staying solvent in an industry driven to deliver results. This presentation will explore the industry-specific challenges that face legalized cannabis businesses including regulatory obligations, such as the California Cannabis Track-and-Trace ("CCTT") system, the Health Insurance Portability and

Cannabis, Coronavirus and the State Regulatory Landscape: An Examination of the Legal Horizon for Cannabis Post-Pandemic and Beyond (07/22/2020)

Program Number: 30175 Presenter: Anna C. Halsey, Esq., Gregory S. Kaufman, Esq., Meghana D. Shah, Esq., Virginia "Jenny" E. Worthy, Esq.

While public attention has focused on how the coronavirus is affecting cannabis businesses from the perspective of supply and demand, there is an equally important force receiving less attention: the evolution of the state regulatory framework for cannabis. Until now, the industry has operated against the backdrop of the state-federal conflict with the potential of several important developments—such as legalization in a number of states—on the horizon for 2020. The spread of the coronavirus has necessarily shifted legislative focus while also reviving dialogue about legalization and other regulatory expansion through a new lens. Using their recently published book, The State of Cannabis Law, as a launching pad, Eversheds Sutherland lawyers will use this webinar to take a closer look at the state cannabis landscape including how states have addressed cannabis regulation, the horizon for legalization and other important developments we can expect to see in 2021 and beyond.

Advising Financially Distressed Companies in the Cannabis Industry (02/12/2020)

Program Number: 3014 Presenter: Michael Riela, Esq.

Although many states have legalized the medical or recreational use of marijuana, marijuana remains flatly illegal under federal law. Because of this, most bankruptcy courts refuse to grant bankruptcy relief to financially-troubled businesses that operate in or around the cannabis industry. As a result, businesses that are involved (however tangentially) in the cultivation and distribution of cannabis products must use other methods to restructure their balance sheets or to sell their assets, including assignments for the benefit of creditors, receiverships, creditor compositions and out-of-court sales. This impacts the substantive and procedural rights of not only the cannabis-related business itself, but also those of its investors and lenders. Learning Objectives: • Understand the status of federal law with respect to cannabis, and current case law regarding the availability of the federal bankruptcy courts to financially troubled businesses involved in the cannabis industry. • Explore debt restructuring and asset liquidation alternatives to bankruptcy, as
