In-House Legal Forum

In-House Legal Forum

The firm hosts an in-house legal forum each year, primarily targeted at lawyers who are general counsel at clients of the firm and solo or small firm practitioners. We typically have the law forum accredited by the Nebraska and Iowa CLE Commissions. We began this program in December of 2011 to offer ethics credits to those that find they are close to the end of the year and need credits. This forum has grown over the years and the topics covered reflect the changes in the legal landscape. 

Examples of topics we have presented in recent years include:

  • Annual update on Nebraska ethics law
  • Technology program. In the past this has included ethical issues in the use of new technologies and ethical issues related to encryption
  • Attorney/client privilege for in-house counsel
  • Communicating with lawyers and adversaries
  • Threatening criminal charges in civil negotiations
  • Ethical implications of tape recording communications
  • Ethics of settlement negotiations
  • Conducting in-house investigations of alleged wrongdoing
  • Duties of outside directors/conflicts of interest
  • Who retains privilege after a merger or acquisition
  • Attorney wellness


You asked, we're delivering. Please join us on Thursday, October 3, for our annual In-House Legal Forum, where you'll get all 5 hours of your required in-person Nebraska CLE in one day! The Forum will include 2 hours dedicated to professional responsibility, which will also fulfill your 2024 Ethics requirement. If you only need Ethics credits, you can just attend the last two hours, space permitting.
