The Brooklyn Bar Association held its first-ever “Lunch and Learn” event on Thursday afternoon via Zoom. “Lunch and Learn” is a series of continuing legal education seminars that will be hosted regularly on recent Appellate Division cases and their impact on the law.

The focus of this CLE was on first-party, no-fault litigation with Darryl Lapidus, a principal court attorney from the Appellate Term, Second Department.

Lapidus is a graduate of Cornell University and the Syracuse University Law School. After working in private practice, Lapidus has served as a principal appellate court attorney at the Appellate Term, Second Department for the past 19 years.

Lapidus is a regular lecturer on issues out of the Appellate Division and gave the first-part, no-fault law lecture at the Judicial Seminar for the Board of Judges of the Civil Court at the NYS Judicial Institute and the NYS Judicial Summer Seminars.

The topics that Lapidus covered in his one-hour lecture on Thursday included verification and the 120-day rule, the Mallela defense, attorneys’ fees and arbitration.

The CLE was sponsored by the Brooklyn Bar Association’s general practice section and its chair, Hon. Robin Garson.

The Brooklyn Bar Association has two more events coming up this month. On Tuesday, Sept. 15, Steve Cohn and Martin Connor, with Harvard University Professor Alexander Keyssar, will host a two-hour seminar on voter suppression, its history and future.

Then on Thursday, Sept. 24, Richard Klass, first vice president of the BBA, and investigative attorney William Belmont will host a lunch seminar on the use of investigators in litigation matters. That will cover what investigators can and cannot do and will outline some ethical and criminal violations.
