What are the best practices for conducting trials via videoconference? How does real estate affect the cannabis licensing process? What are the Four Cornerstones of Mediation? Lawline’s lineup of April CLE will answer all of these questions and more as we dive into topics covering best practices for virtual trials, real estate concerns for cannabis businesses, and finding the right mediator in a multicultural world. Check out some highlights below:

  • Remote Trial Considerations: Juries, Witnesses & Evidence. As we continue to work in a remote environment and will most likely continue to beyond the pandemic, this program aims to explore best practices for conducting remote trials, including jury selection, nonjury vs. jury trials, voir dire, cross-examination, and evidence.

  • Navigating Real Estate Issues for Cannabis Businesses. Every state agency requires cannabis license applicants to prove site control in the form of a lease, deed, or enforceable option to purchase, but funding site control can be difficult. This program will explore solutions to the application requirements, how to “cannabis-ize” a lease, ensuring compliance with state laws, and much more. Airing April 20, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (EST)
  • Mediation Make or Break: How to Select the Right Mediator in a Multicultural World. Mediators often need to have a cultural and social-emotional awareness and intellectual agility in order to understand the nuances of what’s been said between two parties. This program will teach attorneys how to improve the outcome of a mediation through the Four Cornerstones of Mediation: emotional intelligence, cultural knowledge, cultural immersion, and genuine empathy.
