CLE Calendar: ABA Programs Analyze Controversial Immigration Law

Arizona’s controversial immigration law, which gives local police the authority to stop and detain suspected illegal immigrants, is said to infringe on the civil rights of all Americans. But does it really? Join the _ Center for Continuing Legal Education for a discussion on the law before it officially goes into effect on July 29. The July 21 program, The Arizona Immigration Statute: Civil Rights Implications and National Impact,” will feature insight from two Arizona-based panelists, both with the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.

Other notable programs for the month of July include two sessions from the ABA Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries 2010 Teleconference Series.

  • July 27 “What Entertainment & Sports Lawyers Need to Know About Mitigating the Effects of a Projected $1.1 Trillion in New Tax Increases Over the Next 10 Years, Starting 2011” will analyze the unique tax considerations for entertainers and athletes. Panelists will explore how lawyers can assist their clients in lowering the rate of taxation; income, estate and asset protection planning; divorce planning; and acquiring offshore asset protection trusts, life insurance and annuity contracts.
  • July 28 “New Developments and Trends in Music Publishing Law” will focus on the present and future impact of copyright terminations on music publishing rights, music in videogames, streaming rights, and new music licensing opportunities in the digital age and music publishing deal-making in 2010 and beyond.
