This interactive program uses hypotheticals to explore lawyers' confidentiality and disclosure duties in the context of clients' past or ongoing misconduct. Among other things, the program will address: lawyers' possible duty to disclose clients' past fraud on tribunals, or past misconduct in non-corporate and corporate settings; distinguishing between past and ongoing client misconduct (including fugitive clients); client crimes' fruits and instrumentalities; lawyers' silence which causes victim families' anguish, or allows a wrongly convicted person to remain incarcerated.

From fraud to member complaints and potential discrimination to harassment and unemployment claims, there are numerous instances where an air tight internal investigation is the key to an effective resolution. But conducting a fair and thorough investigation is harder than it seems, and a poorly performed investigation can make matters worse. In order to have an acceptable result, the investigator must gather all the relevant facts, interview potential witnesses, come to logical conclusions about the violation of law or policy and issue a carefully crafted written report that meets all the needs of the credit union. Join Certified Fraud Examiner and recovering General Counsel, David Reed, as he presents the essential elements of conducting effective internal investigations.
Speaker: Joe Clark

In July 2018, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (“OCC”) announced that it would start accepting applications for national bank charters from non-depository Fintech companies engaged in the “business of banking.” Since then, the New York Department of Financial Services and Conference of State Bank Supervisors have sued the OCC to block it from issuing Fintech charters and traditional financial institutions, including credit unions, have worried about the competitive threat that Fintechs with national charters would pose to the traditional banking business. But is all this worry really worth it? This program will provide an overview of the Fintech charter, its status, as well as its potential impact on credit unions.
