    Schedule:

    9:00 – 10:00 A.M. MYTH OF THE DIGITAL NATIVE

    CASEY FLAHERTY, Founder of Procertas and former inside counsel for Kia Motors

    Casey Flaherty is the Founder of Procertas and former inside counsel for Kia Motors. Casey will discuss the ‘myth of the digital native’ – a convincing argument for improving attorneys’ depth of knowledge in the applications most commonly used by attorneys. Casey will also discuss his work in developing the Minnesota version of the Legal Tech Audit (now the ‘Service Delivery Review’), an assessment designed to test how efficiently attorneys can perform common functions in applications like Word, Excel, and Adobe.

    10:00 – 11:00 A.M. ALTERNATIVE LEGAL MODELS  

    SONIA MILLER VAN-OORT, Attorney at Sapentia Law Group and 2017-2018 MSBA President 
    KAREN CIANO, Attorney, Brief-Writer and Federal Sherpa at Karen Ciano Law 
    JENNA WESTBY, Attorney at LEGALnudge , Family Law Redefined
    INTI MARTINEZ-ALEMAN, Attorney at Ceiba Forte Law Firm

    The billable hour is no longer the only appropriate legal model of practicing law. Our panel will go beyond the “billable hour” to discuss alternative legal models outside the traditional practice of law, including alternative solo and small practices, attorney freelancing, as well as alternative fee arrangements and billing models. The individual speakers in this panel will give their perspectives on which of these tools they implement in their own practices, why they implement these alternatives, and how you can apply these alternatives to your own practice.

    11:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M. NAVIGATING PRACTICE TRANSITIONS

    PATTY DEVOY, Claim Attorney at Minnesota Lawyers Mutual 
    GEORGE NORRIS, Civil Division Attorney at Minneapolis City Attorney’s Office
    SHELLEY CARTHEN-WATSON, Senior Associate General Counsel at the University of Minnesota

    Are you planning on making a practice transition now, or in the future? Our panel will discuss how to successfully navigate a variety of practice transitions, including transitioning laterally, from public to private (or vice versa), or private to in-house.  Through their own personal experiences, our panel will share the transition they made and why, the risks and benefits associated with their transition, how they transferred and applied their existing skills and experience to succeed in their new position.

    1:00 – 2:00 P.M. ON THE PATH TO LAWYER WELL-BEING

    JOAN BIBELHAUSEN, Executive Director of Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers
    ROBIN WOLPERT, Attorney at Sapentia Law, 2016-2017 MSBA President
    BEN KWAN, Managing Partner at Haller Kwan and President of Minnesota Asian Pacific American Bar Association

    In collaboration with the MSBA Life and Law Committee and Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, the members of our panel will discuss how newer lawyers – the next generation of legal professionals – can make changes in tomorrow’s legal environment.   The speakers will review their path to leadership and share healthy behaviors that have led to their successful practices. There will also be a brief overview of The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change, the groundbreaking and comprehensive ABA report released in August 2017.

    2:00 – 3:00 P.M. OPEN FORUM WITH TODD SCOTT AND JOE KACZROWSKI

    TODD SCOTT, Vice President of Risk Management at Minnesota Lawyers Mutual
    JOE KACZROWSKI, Online Services Director at MSBA

    Joe Kaczrowski and Todd Scott will provide an overview of legal technology and introduce current trends within the industry. Then, the floor is yours. Ask them anything. No tech topic is taboo – email, blockchain, practice management, security, eDiscovery, word processing…you name it!

    3:00 – 4:00 P.M. THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT PRACTICING LAW

    DAVID KEMPTSON, Attorney at Law Office of Thomas Mottaz

    Would you like to improve your practice? David Kempston believes focusing on the attorney-client relationship will lead to excellent lawyering.  He will explore what it means to provide clients with superior customer service. This practical session will encourage lawyers to do the ordinary tasks better.  His approach recognizes that lawyers differ and all possess varying inherent customer skill sets.  Regardless of the starting point, however, attorneys can improve their craft, if they are willing to learn how to apply principles of great customer service.  Attorney Kempston uses wisdom and humor to outline 22 practical pointers for improving these skills.  All lawyers will profit from this thoughtful examination of a client-centered approach to the practice of law.
