COURSE TOPICS

Military Pensions in Divorce: A Unique and Different Creature
Peter J. Jankell

A number of recent developments in both state and federal law affect the way military pensions can come into play in a divorce case. It is imperative for any practitioner who is going to give advice on family law matters that involve military pensions to understand these developments.         
Military Consequences of Civilian Criminal Involvement
Brian A. Pristera

This session will cover how routine and often benign civilian authority involvement can negatively impact or end a military career. Dismissed or reduced charges, deferred judgements, frivolous civil complaints, and even an unwarranted arrest can carry a toll on servicemembers once known to the chain of command. It is critically important for civilian attorneys to understand that a great result in the civilian sector may still carry negative consequences for servicemember clients.         
Navy Victims’ Legal Counsel Program
Charlotte E. Cluverius

This session will provide an overview of the military VLC program, which provides survivors of sexual offenses with legal support. The overview will include a discussion on how this program operates, who is eligible for services, and the rights of victims of a sexual offense in the military justice system.    
Representing Clients in the Security Clearance Process
John V. Berry

A comprehensive look at the security clearance process. Topics covered include:  legal authorities; the different types of security clearances; how security clearances are obtained; the investigative process; interim clearance/suspension decision; administrative due process; common security clearance problems; strategies for revoked clearances; and differences in clearance decisions between different federal agencies.            
Avoiding Bar Complaints in “The Time of COVID” (2021)
Prescott L. Prince

COVID-19 has impacted the way attorneys conduct business, and some of these impacts will continue well beyond the end of the pandemic. Your basic ethical obligations, however, remain the same—although there may be some new tweaks. This session will cover Rule 1.1 (Competence); Rule 1.3 (Diligence); Rule 1.4 (Communication); and Rule 1.16 (Declining or Termination Representation).
