Ethical Considerations in Representing Immigrant Clients in Employment Cases
Representing clients from other countries brings the joy of learning about different cultures, and also comes with ethical challenges. How can you protect your clients against immigration-related threats by the employer? Can an undocumented worker bring the same claims as a U.S. citizen? What if your client worked under a false name, or with false documents?
Carol Brooke, Senior Attorney with the Workers’ Rights Project of the North Carolina Justice Center, will give practical tips as well as an overview of how immigration status may impact your immigrant client’s employment claims. Come learn how to prepare yourself so you aren’t caught off guard if your client returns to their home country, was working under a false name, or doesn’t have a Social Security number.
Registration includes 1.0 Ethics hour
Proving Pain & Suffering Through Every Stage of Your Trial
Program Chairs David Mason and Courtney Mann have put together what is anticipated to be one of the most heavily attended seminars of the year.
This seminar teaches you how to get maximum value out of your personal injury case at trial without relying on blackboard medical bills as a damages floor:
- Have you ever wondered how to try an auto case without introducing a single medical bill?
- Have you ever struggled to find a way to get the jury to understand the true value of your client’s soft tissue injuries and treatment course?
This program has been uniquely engineered to focus on proving all aspects of pain and suffering damages through every phase of trial: jury selection, opening statement, direct exam of your injured client, direct exam of a treating physician, use of exhibits, cross exam of the defendant driver, cross exam of a defense physician, and closing argument.
An incredible list of trial lawyers have been assembled to address each of these critical topics. This will be a power-packed seminar for attorneys of all skill and experience levels.

Skills Academy: Damages — What We’ve Learned After Ten Years
It’s been over ten years since the North Carolina General Assembly passed the cap on non-economic damages.
At this CLE, we’ll look back on what happened when the caps were passed, how it’s affected the practice of law and what, if anything, can we do to change the law or find ways to work around it. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from two attorneys who have found a way to bust the cap in their cases.
