Far too often, lawyers mistakenly assume that HIPAA Laws are not applicable to them or to their practice of law. HIPAA Law is not confined to the healthcare sector, but also applies to and regulates individuals and entities that are considered Business Associates or sub-contractors (i.e., lawyers, accountants, IT personnel, etc.) of a “Covered Entity” under HIPAA. This CLE Webinar will provide a “nuts-and-bolts” overview of the key provisions of HIPAA law, as well as the following specific applications relevant to the legal profession: (1) client representation that renders lawyers subject to HIPAA regulation; (2) compliance requirements for HIPAA-regulated lawyers; (3) special considerations and practical tips for law practice compliance with HIPAA Laws; (4) important requirements for utilizing HIPAA protected documents, data and information in an administrative or judicial proceeding; and (5) state laws and HIPAA Preemption.

Perhaps now more than ever, the hot-button issue of transgender student rights has led to a wealth of recent legal developments that affect millions of Americans. This course offers a current snapshot of the rights of transgender students and the corresponding obligations of, and best practices for, educational institutions. After a brief overview of the constitutional and statutory protections against sex discrimination (with a focus on the educational context), the discussion will turn to how the executive branch’s position on the issue has changed over time and where it presently stands. Insights from state legislatures and both federal and state courts will also be shared.
