During his extraordinary life, Cruz Reynoso has been one of those rare individuals who are not only shaped by history--they make history. Sowing the Seeds of Justice paints a portrait of Cruz Reynoso, a man who felt the sting of injustice as a child and later, as a lawyer, judge and teacher, fought for over five decades to eradicate discrimination and inequality for all.

Elder Law Institute XVII: Medicaid Strategies for Advanced Long Range and Last Minute Crisis Planning
Friday, March 18, 9:00-5:00
If you practice estate planning, you know that sometimes you have the ability to plan ahead and sometimes there is a crisis that limits your options. Either way, there are different views among practitioners about what techniques are best and what strategies are most effective. This year's Institute provides you with the wisdom and practice experience of some of the leading estate planners regarding how to approach these two planning opportunities. Hear what they have to say and test it against your own practice.
Recent Developments in False Claims Act Litigation
Thursdays March 24 and 31, 4:00-7:30 p.m.
One of the hottest areas of litigation is false claims act or whistleblower cases. With the U.S. Attorney's office giving priority to pursuing fraud against the government, this is an area of growth and large verdicts. Although this is complex litigation, this program will provide a framework for understanding the nature of these cases, the parties involved and the role of the government. You will also hear about new frontiers in whistleblowing cases and how these claims get resolved.
5th Annual Thomas F. Lambert Jr. Conference: New Theories of Tort Recovery, Friday, April 1, 2011, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Changes in tort law resulting from recent SJC decisions have had a major impact on practice. If you handle any personal injury cases, you should attend this conference and learn how to integrate these holdings into your approach no matter which side you represent.
Following the Lambert conference is our annual reception to present the Charles P. Kindregan Award for Extraordinary Contributions to Advanced Legal Studies. This year's recipient is Elizabeth Mulvey, Esq. For more information about the award and to RSVP, please click HERE.
