3:30 PM Doors Open
4:00 PM Performance Begins

DEFAMATION is an old-fashioned courtroom drama. The premise is a civil suit: A South Side African-American woman sues a Jewish North Shore real estate developer for defamation. The legal issue is whether or not she was falsely accused of stealing his watch and causing her financial harm.  DEFAMATION explores the highly charged issues of race, religion, gender, class and the law with a twist: our law school audience is the jury. Through deliberations and post-show discussions, audiences engage in civil discourse that challenges pre-conceived notions. After the trial, the audience engages in a 15-minute deliberation led by the judge. The judge polls the audience twice - before the deliberation begins and at its end. The final vote ‘for the plaintiff’ or ‘for the defendant’ decides the outcome of the trial.

Management of Disc Pathologies and Other Spinal Abnormalities with Non-Surgical Pain Management with Strong Concentration on the Effects and Administration of Cortisone Injections. 

Presented by Roman Andrew Klufas, MD

This program will introduce the legal community to the appropriate use and interpretation of spinal and extremity imaging, particularly in the setting of accident trauma. We will review the role of various imaging modalities, including X-ray, CT, and MRI in assessing traumatic injury to the cervical, lumbar spine and large extremities. A main goal of the lecture is to assist the attorney in the challenging task of differentiating acute injury from pre-existing chronic disease. Particular emphasis is placed on deciphering commonly used (and sometimes misused) imaging terminology to facilitate understanding the radiologist’s report and integrating image interpretation with clinical data.

5:30 pm  – 6:00 pm    Registration
6:00 pm –  7:45 pm    Program
7:45 pm –  8:00 pm    Q&A
8:00 pm –  8:30 pm    Networking Reception

Crowne Plaza
801 Greenwich Avenue
Warwick, RI 02886
