With Frank Carone recently installed as the new president of the Brooklyn Bar Association, plans for upcoming continuing legal education lectures are underway for September with Kings County Supreme Court Justice Katherine Levine leading one of the planned CLEs.

For the most part, bar associations across the city offer little in the way of live CLE during July and August, and the Brooklyn Bar Association is no different. However, that will quickly change once September rolls around.

The BBA has a number of CLE courses that it is preparing for the fall months, but four were ready to be announced this week.

Mark Caruso, pictured here with law partner RoseAnn Branda, will lecture on updates in real estate law.

On Sept. 19, the Civil Rights Committee chaired by Dewey M. Golkin and Jonathan Stead, are hosting a CLE on immigration law. The BBA recently created the Immigration Law Committee, which wasn’t initially involved with organizing it, but will likely be the public’s formal introduction of the new committee.

On Sept. 24, Justice Levine will lead a CLE on recent updates to sexual harassment laws in the city and state. This CLE is expected to be interactive and will fulfill new sexual harassment training requirements that were put into place on April 1, 2019, according to BBA Membership Director Jen Bryan.

On Sept. 25, Mark Caruso, a partner in the firm Abrams Fensterman, will lead a CLE titled, “Real Estate Potpouri.”

Brooklyn Bar Association Trustee Daniel Antonelli is another frequent CLE lecturer.

On Oct. 7, BBA Trustee Daniel Antonelli along with attorneys Jim Cahill and Cheryl Erato will present on e-filing in the Surrogate’s Court. The two-hour discussion will cover how the e-filing system in the Surrogate’s Court is unique and it will also cover standards and goals in the court.
