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.

11818 I Street
Omaha, Nebraska

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.

This practical program will explain, in simple terms, what technology-assisted review (“TAR”) is and is not; describe how the different kinds of TAR on the market work; discuss how TAR can be used to reduce cost and achieve effective, efficient, and proportionate discovery; review the scientific evidence for TAR; and address judicial acceptance of TAR.
