Educational sessions will include these presentations:

• Cybersecurity issues for lawyers, presented by Drew Simshaw, policy analyst for the Center for Law, Ethics and Applied Research in Health Information at Indiana University; and,
• Dealing with lawyers in the firm with mental or physical health issues, presented by Loretta A. Oleksy, deputy director of the Indiana Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program.
Along with Cohen & Malad, Newby Lewis Kaminski & Jones LLP of LaPorte is the only other Indiana firm affiliated with the Legal Netlink Alliance. More information about the alliance is available here.
