21st Century Lawyer Virtual Session


THE JANUS RULE - WHAT COMES NEXT FOR UNIFIED BARS?

January 7, 2019

2:00 - 3:00 p.m. eastern time
(1:00 - 2:00 p.m. central time; 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. mountain time; 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. pacific time)



In June of 2018, the United States Supreme Court decided in Janus vs. AFSCME, that public employees do not have to pay fees to unions to cover the costs of collective bargaining; a decision that individual lawyers in states where bar membership is mandatory were watching closely. Join two veteran bar leaders during this webinar as they discuss the state of the unified bar since the Janus decision. We'll look at what mandatory bars are doing from different angles - from those who are staying the course, to those who've already decided to create something new.

MODERATOR:

Sharon Stern Gerstman, Past President, The New York State Bar Association

SPEAKERS:

Emilio Varanini, Vice President, California Lawyers Association

Janet Welch, Executive Director, State Bar of Michigan
