    • October 11, 2014
    • 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    • Meeting Place to be Determined

    Let the Lorain County Bar Association and Northcoast Grapevine Tours provide you with a unique and memorable experience touring the beautiful wineries and vineyards of the Lake Erie Shores wine trail.  Northcoast Grapevine Tours is the premier provider of winery and wine event tours in northwest Ohio, specializing in smaller groups so they can deliver a more personal and intimate service.

    Lorain County wineries will be showcased in this tour.  You will be educated on the local grape growing and wine producing industries along Ohio’s north coast.  The area is rich in history and tradition, with winemaking dating back to the early 1800’s.  You will enjoy a day long escorted tour through the countryside to a select group of wineries.

    The tour will take place on Saturday, October 11, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  We will visit four to six wineries and enjoy 5 to 6 samples at each one.  The cost will be between $80 and $90 per person (dependent upon how many go).  The fee is for the tour bus, the guide, and the tastings.  If you would like food, that is on your own (unless we order lunch as a group from Paper Moon Winery, which would raise the coast approximately $15 per person – this will be decided by the group once confirmed reservations are in).

    If you would like to attend this event, please send in your confirmation along with your deposit ($25 per person attending) by July 15th.  If we do not receive enough confirmed reservations, we will return your deposit.  Once we have enough people to book the trip, you will be notified via email.  The balance owed is due October 1, 2014.


    Please submit this page to the LCBA before July 15, 2014
    (627 Broad Street, Elyria, OH 44035)


    Please register me/us for the October 11 Winery Grapevine Tour.  Enclosed is my/our deposit in the amount of $____________ ($25 per person.)  I understand that I am required to pay the balance on or before October 1, 2014.  (The amount of the balance will be determined by the number of people attending – either $80 or $90 per person).

    A Boxed Lunch Seminar

    Cyber Security for Attorneys:
    What I Need to Know to Protect My Practice

    Featuring Randy Zinn, President, MicroSystems

    Thursday, November 20, 2014
    LorMet Community Federal Credit Union
    12:00 noon – 2:00 p.m.
    2.0 CLE Hours

    We have no desire to make attorneys into IT people – and frankly, they don’t want to go there anyway.  But that doesn’t mean that we can’t arm them to be able to protect and defend themselves from the sea of ne-er-do-wells lurking in the dark recesses of the internet who would seek to do them harm.  It is a common misconception that attorneys are not targets of attack.  The trust is actually the opposite.  Attorneys hold information for and from “high-value” targets.  This can be anything from corporate raiders to domestic law – regardless of the case, there is someone that would benefit from the information on your computer.  So what can you do to protect yourself, and not be a victim?

    In this seminar, we will cover:
            Points of exposure           Best business practices
            Password protection        Email practices
            Encryption                     Mobile Devices
            Dealing with opposing counsel with respect to                       communications

    Pre-registration is required for lunch.
    You may register at the door for the seminar only.

    Presents

    A Boxed Lunch Seminar

    Attorneys and Electronic Evidence
    “OK, I’ve got it – NOW what do I do with it?”

    Featuring Randy Zinn, President, MicroSystems

    Tuesday, December 9, 2014
    LorMet Community Federal Credit Union
    12:00 noon – 2:00 p.m.
    2.0 CLE Hours

    It is safe to say that the majority of evidence and discovery requests will be coming to you in some electronic format.  When a forensic examiner gives you a forensic image of a hard drive, what will you do?  Sure, you could pay a provider to run a search for you, but sometimes you aren’t sure what you are looking to find.  As well, you may not have an IT department to help you wade through what you are about to see.

    The goal of this seminar is to enable the ATTORNEY/PARALEGAL to use tools that are FREE and readily available to load the image, and then to teach the ATTORNEY/PARALEGAL where to look for “low hanging fruit.”  This will not obviate the need for competent examiners, but it WILL give the small law firm the ability to do many of these things themselves.

    This seminar will cover:
        Copy vs. image                   
        Current forensic methods       
        Validation of electronic evidence       
        Where data lives
        Native file format – what does that mean to me?

    Pre-registration is required for lunch.
    You may register at the door for the seminar only.
