CLE Credit:

Pennsylvania: 2.0 General

Newly admitted New York attorneys (attorneys admitted to the New York State Bar for two years or less) cannot earn CLE credit in the category of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias.

From the devastation felt by congregate settings like nursing homes and prisons, to Matilda's law and remote execution of documents, the interests and needs of older adults, people of color, prisoners, and front-line workers have been prominent throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in New York.  The rollout of COVID-19 vaccine now poses challenges that we are witnessing daily.

This CLE will feature a panel discussion with legal experts and officials in public health, and individual rights.  Together we will review the overlaps and distinctions between federal and state plans for vaccine delivery, prioritization of groups for vaccination, informed consent, considerations for guardians, government and employer mandates, and patient privacy concerns to help you navigate the terrain for your clients.
