Law Journal Symposium
The 2013 Law Journal Symposium focuses on Georgia’s Business Law. Georgia House Representative Wendell Willard will open the Symposium with a brief lecture on “the lawyer as an advocate” which will provide attendees with a 0.5 hr CLE on professionalism. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., on March 4, 2013 in the Blackburn Conference Center, located at the campus of Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School.
The first article for presentation was authored by Professor Mark Budnitz, Professor of Law at Georgia State University College of Law. Professor Budnitz’s article focuses on Novare Group v. Sarif and contends that the court’s approach undermines the Fair Business Practices Act (FBPA) of Georgia. He discusses the FBPA, parole evidence and merger clauses discussed in the court’s opinion and future implications of the court’s holding.
The next article for presentation was authored by L. Andrew Immerman, Esq., and co-authored by Bryan N. Baird, student of Georgia State University College of Law. This article discusses Georgia’s Limited Liability Company Act and its durability since its enactment 20 years ago. The article discusses the changes the LLC Act has undergone, particularly a recent set of amendments, and what additional changes may be forthcoming.
The last segment for presentation was authored by Frank G. Goldman, Esq. Mr. Goldman’s article discusses the impact e-discovery and its procedures have on closely-held businesses and their owners. He focuses on Georgia law on the topic, including recent legislation that is being introduced in this session of the State Legislature, but also looks to the federal e-discovery rules and those found in other states.
