Kang Haggerty managing member Edward T. Kang and associate Kandis L.

They will be joined by Elaine Edralin Pascua of TrueBlue, Inc. and Carolyn Enciso Sieve of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP. Ireno A. Reuss III will serve as moderator. The program will take place on Friday, November 8th from 1:30 – 2:45 PM.
Emoji use is increasing, and courts—like us—are learning how to interpret them in the context of a trial, in the workplace, and in a plethora of practice areas. The purpose of the CLE, “Emoji Law: Are You Prepared for Emojis, Emoticons and Hashtags in Litigation?” is to help attorneys learn how to best represent clients on these issues, the most recent cases dealing with emojis, the role of the hashtag in the law and points of consideration for in-house counsel. The program will provide an overview of emojis, emoticons and hashtags; learn intent and literal interpretations, related Model Rules of Professional Conduct, and a variety of civil and criminal cases. The panel will address topics that include evidence, contracts, criminal harassment, discrimination, and workplace issues and policies, and how to best protect your company from harmful litigation.
NAPABA is the preeminent professional development organization and voice for 50,000 Asian Pacific American attorneys, judges, law professors, and law students. NAPABA represents the interests of nearly 90 national, state, and local Asian Pacific American bar associations. Kang Haggerty is a proud sponsor of the 2019 Convention.
