12:00 pm   NSBA Health Insurance Consortium Informational Meeting *Lunch is not included
Law firms of all sizes face significant challenges in relation to the affordability of health insurance. The Nebraska State Bar Association has partnered with Aon Risk Solutions to establish a new health insurance option for its members – the NSBA Health Insurance Consortium. The Consortium will consist of multiple employers, with NSBA membership, pooling together to obtain affordable health insurance coverage on terms similar to those currently available only to large employers. Please attend this informational session to learn more about eligibility, potential premiums and the coverage options available through the NSBA’s Health Insurance Consortium.

1:00 pm    Ethics and Pro Bono
Laurel Heer Dale and Carol Cleaver, NSBA Volunteer Lawyers Project
Helping persons with nowhere else to turn is a core value of the legal profession and the Nebraska State Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project. Nebraska lawyers have an ethical obligation to perform pro bono work. This two-hour CLE will address the Nebraska Rules of Professional Conduct as they relate to a lawyer’s special responsibility to provide voluntary
pro bono legal services. The CLE will discuss ethical considerations related to participation in pro bono programs facilitated by the Volunteer Lawyers Project: full and limited scope representation, assisting self-represented persons at a courthouse help desk, providing short-term limited representation online or at a limited advice clinic. Issues critical to pro bono representation will be addressed through a series of hypotheticals demonstrating the application of ethics rules applicable to pro bono cases.
