Easy Buttons and Digital Natives: pernicious myths that impede productivity. In a provocative talk on what legal professionals don’t do well, Casey will take aim at the erroneous assumptions that cause us to ignore core technology training to our detriment. Casey will situate this failing in the broader context of shifts in the legal market and extoll the virtues of competence-based learning.

Community Service Project
In November we will be announcing a new volunteer opportunity with the Center for Economic Progress , a non-profit organization, in Chicago. Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity where your legal research skill and tax knowledge will be useful… an opportunity to work one on one to lift up working families and make them more stable? You can choose among several roles from tax preparation, Credit Geek, Savings Coach, or a Tax Site Specialist. Volunteers will work at one of 16 sites around the city, including downtown. At the November meeting, Donna Tuke will share her experiences as a tax site manager and volunteer. You can gain valuable new skills while directly impacting individuals and families. Law librarians with their understanding of tax laws and financial resources are especially appreciated. No law degree required!
