Continuing Legal Education and Programming

As a service to its alumni and friends, the College of Law is happy to provide CLE credits during the 2017-2018 academic year. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to use the facility and reconnect. Cost to attend CLE programming is $20 for each attendee - exact change is required. Because programming develops throughout the course of the school year, registration is exclusively online. We encourage interested individuals to check this website routinely as programs are added continuously throughout the school year.

Right to be Forgotten
1.0 cr hr

Speaker(s): Arthur Ferreira Neto

Auditorium

This talk by Dr. Arthur Maria Ferreira Neto will discuss the emerging “right to be forgotten” that is now being recognized in many legal jurisdictions, including the European Union as well as particular countries. It is exemplified most prominently by the 2014 ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union against Google, requiring it to permit individuals to request that certain personal information about them not appear in its search results.  Dr. Neto will analyze how this issue manifests a tension between different types of fundamental rights, namely, freedom of speech and the press on the one hand, and rights to privacy and personal integrity on the other.  He will focus on the experience of Brazil and the European Union in dealing with this problem, while also referring to comparative approaches in the U.S., and will propose criteria to control the use of the right to be forgotten in courts.

Thursday, 2017, September 28 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Guardianship in Nebraska: An Updated View
1.0 cr hr

Speaker(s): Michael Elsken

Auditorium

This presentation will take a look at the foundation for guardianship law, both historically and legislatively, and its application in current practice, and where the law is likely to go.  It is essentially a primer on guardianship, and the aspect of capacity which is supposed to be the primary concern with respect to the institution of a guardianship. From the standpoint of attorneys, probably the most significant thing that has come to our agency’s concern has to do with attorneys who, having been appointed as guardians, charging fees at an attorney’s hourly rate for performing services that are general guardian duties (eg., seeking attorney’s fees rates for doing grocery shopping with/for a ward). 

Thursday, 2017, November 9 - 11:30am to 1:00pm
Recent Changes in Nebraska Criminal Law – Positive Reform or Passing the Buck?
1.0 CLE credit hour

Speaker(s): Steve Schmidt, Associate Professor of Law and Courtesy Associate Professor of Forensic Science, University of Nebraska College of Law

Westbound Room at Sandhills Convention Center
(located within the Quality Inn & Suites)
2102 S. Jeffers Street
North Platte, NE 69101

Nebraska criminal law has undergone sweeping changes in the past few years with the passage of several new laws billed as criminal justice reform. Penalties for criminal conduct have been reduced, post-release supervision has been established, certain entries in criminal histories are automatically sealed and bail considerations have been changed. But are we safer? Are we reducing recidivism? Or are we simply passing the buck – shifting the costs, shifting the responsibility, shifting the victimization.
