We have so many comps for you from the EBA in this newsletter! Annual Memberships are free right now, so sign up! (use code EBANOW!2017 at check-out) When you join the EBA, your fee for seminars will be discounted by 25%! That is about $22/hour for new lawyers (under 5 years) and $44/hour for more experienced attorneys. What a bargain for truly relevant CLE!
You can learn so much about why we started the EBA for lawyers like you from the membership meeting, available on-demand at no charge. The program includes a half-hour of CLE and the article, “Representing Clients in the New, New Economy”.
And, read on my friend, to get yet another comp in this newsletter: Brian Hall’s review of tech and IP issues. Both are topics you will want to keep an eye on as the new Administration moves ahead, and his presentation was one of the best articles from our April 6 CLE.
But, please, I want you also to look forward to our CLE on May 18, which is so relevant for lawyers who represent entrepreneurs and is not something you usually find in CLE-land. It is a review of the lawyer’s role in the “resource ecosystem,” the culture from which entrepreneurial communities rocking the country have sprung. More than just a CLE presentation about technical legal issues, we tell you what real start-up lawyers and their real clients do, want and utilize in these energized systems.
Also, don’t forget that on May 18, our second membership meeting is available via live video webinar and in person at the Capital Factory in Austin, with free half hour CLE on Entrepreneurial Law: Practical Legal Counsel in the Start-up Economy.
Now, for that update:
The EBA is excited to report that on April 6, we launched our organization in-person at the hip and hopping Capital Factory in Austin, Texas, the city that is in hyper-drive growth. Our board was energized, our speakers were amazing and first-class and, best of all, our tech connected us to the world without a hitch. Our organization’s success-mantra kicked us up to legit status, as launched.
The Membership Meeting on-demand webinar with .5-hr of CLE is free and the video can be accessed here. Shari Wynne Ressler and James Oury gave a high energy and global perspective on the entrepreneurial lawyer in their CLE segment, “Representing the New, New Economy,” and you can access that compelling white paper here.
After the membership meeting, members greeted each other, many of them with the sense they had found colleagues they never knew existed. The excitement grew as we realized that the EBA’s Founders had tapped into an interest and need for networking and relevant education present in the legal community of start-up lawyers.
Jenifer Smith, partner at DLA Piper and co-chair on the Austin Bar Tech section, kicked off “The Trump Effect: Get Your Entrepreneurial Client Prepared for the New Reality” with her expert-tour through the flood of Executive Orders and other White House communiques, and what they mean to our clients. Later, Brian Hall, tech lawyer and GC to Notley Ventures, gave us a run-down of what the tech industry can expect, including IP issues. His article is featured in this newsletter because the topic is so important to the EBA community and clients. Read on or click here to get all Brian’s insights.
UK entrepreneurial lawyer, James Oury, gave us the “European Lawyer’s Perspective” including how to get ready for Brexit. A lively Q&A session let everyone into the conversation, finishing up our excellent, interactive day.
And, sign up now for membership in the EBA (complimentary Annual Memberships for a limited time using the code EBANOW!2017 at check out) and for our May 18 CLE, when we will give you the run-down on how to take your client through the resource ecosystem.
Thanks for stopping by and see you at the next program!
