And like any other habit, it is much easier to fall out of than create. I am always amazed how after working out regularly for several months, missing a couple of weeks can put me back to ground zero in terms of the work out “habit.”
That has certainly happened to me with blogging as well. But with the first Monday of October, which of course is the opening of the current term of the U.S. Supreme Court, it seems a like a good time to try to kick the habit back in gear.
At least I have been doing some things, including sharing some of my thoughts on the practice of law with the folks at the Paralegal 411 website: http://www.paralegal411.org/interviews/michael-w-fox/
And there’s more in store. This Friday in Austin, Angie Marshall and I will be speaking at our firm’s seminar on:
TITLE VII AND EMPLOYMENT LAW: THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS
When Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it marked not only a turning point in civil rights, but the beginning of the imposition of an adversary system in the workplace. Trace the history of the development of anti-discrimination law, obtain a greater understanding of current cutting edge issues, and gain an insight into the future during this informative session.
There will be lots of other great speakers and topics as well, including former NLRB member, Brian E. Hayes. For more information and registration information, check here: 11th Annual Labor and Employment Law Update.
And before the year ends, I will be speaking in lovely Charleston, South Carolina with Peter Hughes and Anthony Alfano, Chief Employment, Labor & Benefits Counsel, Tyco at a program designed exclusively for Labor and Employment law in house counsel .
Trial Techniques for In-House Counsel: Don’t Make Juries Mad
Taking a case before a jury can be a nerve-wracking prospect for in-house counsel. The stakes are high and the results can be gratifying . . . or astonishing. This session will cover multiple trial issues and strategies, including juror insights and strategies for voir dire, challenging evidentiary issues, preparing witnesses, selecting experts, and more.
And hopefully, by then I will also be back in the blogging habit.
