Business and Pleasure: Achieving Your Work-Life Balance
Course #: YLC07
Tuesday, May 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
MBA, 20 West St., Boston

70-hour weeks. Committed more to clients than to yourself. Working to pay off student loans. Too much to do and too little time. Does this scenario sound familiar? Join us for a lively discussion on how to find a work-life balance that works for you. Our panel of experts from across the legal spectrum will tell you how to be a happy, committed lawyer and have a life outside the office. A networking reception will follow this program.


Wages, Tips, Traps and Pools
Course #: LEM07
Wednesday, May 16, noon-2 p.m.

Attorney Trager will provide an overview of his office and the investigation process and will discuss recent developments in state wage and hour laws. Attorneys Rebecca G. Pontikes and David B. Wilson will comment on changes in the wage and hour laws and trends as they see them, from the perspectives of both the employee and the employer.

Specific topics to include:

  • How do you increase your odds of facing a government wage and hour audit?
  • Can there be individual liability of officers of the company if, for example, a payroll clerk simply makes an inadvertent error?
  • When is tip pooling allowed and not allowed?
  • What are the state wage and hour regulations regarding tipping and tip pooling?

The RX Files: Medicine for Lawyers - Part III: Anatomy of a Whiplash and Other Injuries
Course #: HLB07
Wednesday, May 16, 4-7 p.m.

It will cover both common and less common medical conditions and terminology, as well as the reading of radiological films (x-rays, MRIs, etc.)


* The Community Planning Act - What's It All About?, scheduled for Thursday, May 17, has been postponed. The seminar will be rescheduled for a later date, to be announced.
