12:30 PM - 1:30 PM: Data Privacy and Security (Ethics)

Scott Hilsen, Cox Automotive, Inc.

The collection of Personal Information (PI) by businesses has become ubiquitous, and most consumers have little to no idea about how their PI is being used, retained, and shared.  Data privacy laws and regulations in the U.S. generally have been limited to specific industries, such as healthcare, banking, and credit.  However, a sea change is coming in 2020 with new data privacy rights for consumers that will affect businesses regardless of industry and location.  The wave started in California on January 1, and will soon sweep through at least half a dozen states.  Georgia lawyers need to understand these new state laws around data privacy and how to best advise their clients for the impending tide.

 

  

1:30 PM - 1:40 PM: BREAK

 

 

1:40 PM - 2:40 PM: Acknowledging and Interrupting Implicit Bias (Professionalism

Anuj Desai, Arnall Golden Gregory LLP
Bianca Motley Broom, Miles Mediation & Arbitration

Alina Lee, Senior Corporate Counsel, Mailchimp 

While most lawyers generally understand the importance of diversity, many still face challenges with defeating implicit bias. This program will not only help to identify the unconscious biases within the practice of law, but also provide a toolkit to interrupt and overcome these inclinations.

 

 

2:40 PM - 2:50 PM: BREAK

 

 

2:50 PM - 3:50 PM: Collecting and Enforcing Judgments (Trial Practice)

Judge Jessy Lall, State Court of Fulton County
Rohan Rupani, Lazega & Johanson
Beth Rogers, Rogers Law Offices

 

Learn about the practical ways to handle what to do once you have a judgment but need to enforce it in state courts. Our panelists have vast experience in collections litigation and Judge Lall will give a perspective from the bench.
