Lessons from My Life by Kristin Beck - Navy SEAL stories that highlight leadership and human rights

For decades, Kristin Beck hid her true self from her brothers in arms, family, and friends. Now, as the nation’s first openly transgender Navy SEAL, Kristin reflects on her years of honorable service and her many accolades, as well as her life beyond the Navy, including her journey to human rights activist and motivational speaker. Kristin touches upon themes of courage, leadership, and standing up for what’s right. In addition, Kristin explores the links between solid leadership, being an ally to those disenfranchised, and how nothing rewarding will ever be handed to you without hard work. Funny and sharp, Kristin Beck inspires audiences to find their voices and create better worlds for their selves, their teams, and future generations to come.

"Are you SURE you want to send that?" Lawyers and Listservs: Best Practices and Ethical Cautions

Listservs are tremendously useful resources in the legal field. They serve as valuable resources of knowledge, experience, references, and community (and sometimes a good laugh). They provide a platform for easy communication with broad groups with common needs and interests. However, they are also fertile ground for abuse and misuse, and can lead to unintended consequences. This presentation will address best practices, common mistakes, and some entertaining anecdotes on using and contributing to listservs. It will touch upon listserv etiquette and the various ways users can contribute and get the most out of an invaluable resource. Discussion will also include applicable ethics opinions, rules of professional conduct, and other legal and ethical considerations when using and contributing to listservs.

Qualifying Language in Repair Litigation

How to use your experts when tackling improperly conceived repair recommendations. Increasingly, liability experts have begun using qualifying language within their reports, such as recommending repairs “where defects exist.” While this is a potentially acceptable repair recommendation, oftentimes, drawings or other means of clarifying where these defects should be assumed to exist are not provided, leaving the responsive experts with an information void and unclear direction on approaches to address these issues. This presentation will discuss how experts can facilitate attorneys with the means to address these issues from a technical standpoint and how attorneys use this information to help their clients. Topics will include: • Evaluation of intrusive testing methods (or lack thereof) • Approaches to address definitive versus speculative repair recommendations • Analyzing extrapolation based on limited observations • How to respond to vague or incomplete repair recommendations o …At locations where clearance is less than 2… o …Remove and replace as required to complete repairs… • How to address unnecessary or excessive repair recommendations • Resolving overlapping repair scopes

Using 3D Scanning in Accident Reconstruction and Biomechanics

Human Factors in Premises Liability Cases

There are various disciplines that can help assess how and/or why a fall event occurs. Human factors can uniquely provide an understanding of whether a given trip/slip and fall incident can be explained by typical human behavior, which in turn is informed by a wealth of scientific studies. This presentation will discuss the visual perceptual cues, looking behavior, and avoidance responses that not only help pedestrians safely navigate their physical environment, but also aid in predicting the likelihood of a fall event. We will also address issues related to codes and warnings that are often seen in these types of cases, as well as common claims made by experts in relation to human factors.
