New Rule 2.526:  Digital Accessibility of Documents Electronically Transmitted to Florida Courts
The rapid introduction of new technology not only has increased efficiency in the courts, law firms, corporate in-house legal departments, and government agency law offices, it has also reduced costs. Over time, the Florida Supreme Court has amended how e-documents are filed in Florida’s courts. New Rule of Judicial Administration 2.526 took effect January 1, 2012. New Rule 2.526 requires that any document that is or will become a judicial branch record, and that is electronically transmitted, be formatted in a manner that complies with all state and federal laws requiring electronic accessibility to persons with disabilities. These requirements include compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Section 508 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as incorporated into Florida law by Section 282.603(1), Florida Statutes (2010). This course will cover: What is an accessible document?; Electronic filing of court documents and digital accessibility of e-filed court documents; Summary explanation of Rule 2.525(g) and Rule 2.526; Necessary software; How to prepare and convert your document; Resources for troubleshooting; Supplemental material is included as a PDF download.

What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About the Fight Against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing
The legal profession is under considerable pressure from both domestic and international sources to implement effective risk-based measures to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. In October 2008, the world’s leading standard setter for anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing policies, the Financial Action Task Force, adopted risk based guidance for the legal profession. The American Bar Association, in consultation with numerous ABA Sections and specialty bar associations, has developed voluntary good practices guidance to implement the 2008 risk based guidance. At the same time, Congress is considering legislation that may impose mandatory, or a “rules based,” approach on the legal profession. This program, which is of interest to all Florida attorneys, will trace the development of the 2008 guidance and the good practices guidance, update outreach efforts with Congress and the Obama Administration and other key stakeholders, and distill the new reality of implementing a voluntary risk-based client due diligence regime within your law firm in light of these developments.
