Friday, 8 May 2009

Army and Navy Club,

Washington, DC

Please join the Pentagon and DC Chapters of the Federal Bar Association, the Federal Bar Association’s Federal Career Service and Young Lawyers Divisions, and the Judge Advocates Association on May 8, 2009 for a “Jobs for JAGs” seminar at the Army & Navy Club in Washington, DC.  This full-day event is designed for junior and senior military attorneys transitioning from active duty to civilian or government practice.  The seminar will feature panels of top attorneys from the Department of Justice and other government agencies, as well as from private practice and industry, to share tips and insights on finding employment.  Many of the panelists are retired or former Judge Advocates and will share their tips on selling your skills as a JAG to government employers, law firms, and corporations. 

As an added bonus, if you can call it that, Fraud With Peril’s very own Steve Levin will be on an afternoon panel, talking about small firm practice.

April 16, 2009:  FBA Grand Jury Program

Just a reminder that the Grand Jury Program is scheduled for Thursday, April 16 at 2:30 in the Baltimore Federal Courthouse.  The panelists and speakers include United States Attorney Rod Rosenstein, Assistant United States Attorneys Stuart Berman and Michael Leotta, and experienced criminal defense attorneys including Gregg Bernstein, Bob Bonsib, Bill Brennan, Max Lauten, Michael Schatzow, and Josh Treem.  The topics will include, but are not limited to, the government’s use of the grand jury, including its classifications of individuals as target/subject/witness; the use of joint defense agreements; issues relating to proffer agreements and immunity (including “act of production” immunity for document subpoenas); the crime-fraud exception; preserving and producing electronic evidence; privilege issues including “claw-back;” motions to quash; and ways in which defense attorneys can monitor grand jury investigations.  The event (which should be lively and interactive) will be followed by a reception with wine/beer and light fare.

The cost is $20 for members of the Federal Bar Association and $35 for non-members, payable at the door by check made out to the FBA-MD Chapter.  To reserve a seat, please email jstraw@zuckerman.com
