Tomorrow I head to Buffalo to give my annual “Municipal Liability” update lecture to a room full of lawyers there. I have already given the same talk in Albany, Syracuse and Rochester earlier this month. Buffalo is the “end of the road” for this year.
I’ve been giving the annual update on this topic to my fellow New York personal injury lawyers all around New York state every year since 2007. To prepare the talk, I have to read EVERY published case from all New York courts on the topic for the entire year, which amounts to hundreds of cases. I then have to write an “outline” summarizing the most important hundred or so cases.
Lots of work? Sure. And it is UNPAID work. Totally voluntary. But still, I get more out of it than what I put in. How?
