Law school teaches you the law, but nothing can prepare you for the types of personalities, career changes and dealings that you will have in practice. This seminar explores some different personalities that new lawyers encounter in their practice and effective strategies for dealing with them—normal and problem clients, professional and Rambo litigators and the spectrum of judicial temperament. It also explores some situations you may find yourself in, such as leaving a firm. Examples will be provided and you will be encouraged to discuss and interact with the presenters when they discuss the strategies, professional courtesies and ideas. The presenters will provide you with the related rules, including ethical rules, the law, and not-so-common sense.
Pre-registration is requested by Friday, February 12 ator 216-687-6871.

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host Visiting Scholar Richard Epstein, the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law at NYU School of Law, Wednesday, March 9 at 5 p.m. The lecture topic is "Leveling Down, or Leveling Up."
Income inequality has become a rallying cry in modern progressive circles. The current illusion is that higher taxes and stiffer regulations can raise the bottom even if it lowers the top. But in fact the likely consequence of these efforts is to continue the downward economic drift of the past decade. It is far easier to level down than it is to level up. The former does not require the economic growth necessary for the latter. Indeed, every known approach for reducing economic inequality is likely to reduce welfare across the income spectrum. This lecture explains how best to reverse the current downward spiral.
About Richard A. Epstein
Richard A. Epstein is the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law at NYU School of Law and widely published author, best known for his writings and studies on classical liberalism, torts, and law and economics. Epstein is also the James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor of Law Emeritus and a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago and has served as a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution since 2000. From 2001 to 2010, he was a director of the John M. Olin Program in Law and Economics at the University of Chicago.
Epstein has published more than 15 books spanning over 30 years. His latest book, The Classical Liberal Constitution: The Uncertain Quest for Limited Government (Harvard U. Press, 2014), urges a return to the classical liberal theory of governance that animated the framers’ original text, and to the limited government this theory supports.

Businesses today are continually developing more sophisticated means of collecting and using data. Deliberate attacks to attempt to access this sensitive information have increased as well, yet a comprehensive regulatory scheme has not developed at the same rapid pace. The Cleveland State Law Review symposium is an opportunity to address this issue by creating a dialogue between regulated entities and government agencies in a way that promotes a creative legal approach to ensuring security and privacy.
The Journal of Law & Health will compile a panel of legal scholars and practitioners, as well as experts in the fields of computer engineering, coding, healthcare risk management, credit protection experts and others closely related to cyber security or identity theft within the healthcare field. The panel will discuss the existing legal framework in place to protect private personal information disseminated among healthcare providers and potential redress for injuries caused by cyber attacks or lack of conformity to regulation. The panel will further discuss potential remedies to prevent future digital identity theft within the healthcare field.

About Sherrod Brown

Before his election to the Senate as a member of the Democratic Party, he was a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Ohio's 13th congressional district from 1993 to 2007.

In 2010, he was selected to join the powerful Appropriations Committee, the first Democrat from Ohio to serve on the committee since the 1890’s.
Senator Brown has argued against free trade on the grounds that labor activism was responsible for the growth of the U.S. middle class, and that the U.S. economy is harmed by trade relations with countries that lack labor regulations that have resulted from activism. He has challenged presidents of both parties on free trade agreement, leading bipartisan opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993 – as a freshman in the U.S. House of Representatives – and to the Central America Free Trade Agreement in 2005.
Senator Brown currently states to be working on trade policies that promote U.S. workers, small businesses and manufacturers while creating jobs and expanding markets through an aggressive export promotion strategy.
