Safety and Freedom: Students’ Rights in the Public School Setting

Date:          Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Time:          12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

Location:    The offices of Gibbel Kraybill & Hess LLP, 2933 Lititz Pike

Teachers and school administrators have difficult jobs. Education can only occur in a safe environment, and establishing that environment is a baseline for any school. In enforcing school rules, however, it is important that teachers and administrators exercise discretion and treat each circumstance appropriately. Students have constitutional rights that must be protected. Moreover, the disciplinary actions taken by a school can have significant effects on a child’s future. It is important for parents, students, teachers, and administrators to understand how these factors interact in the school setting.

Attorneys Jason Asbell and Sheila O’Rourke will present on students’ constitutional rights in the public school setting, including the right to free speech and expression and the right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. They will also discuss due process rights, with special attention to disciplinary procedures and protections in public schools.

This seminar is a must for parents and students who desire to navigate the competing claims of safety and freedom.

A light lunch is included.

Right To Know Law and the Sunshine Act

Date:          Thursday, November 16, 2017

Time:          12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

Location:    The offices of Gibbel Kraybill & Hess LLP, 2933 Lititz Pike

Pennsylvania’s Right to Know Law is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of governmental bodies. In addition, the Pennsylvania Sunshine Act legislates the method by which public meetings are conducted. This seminar explains those laws, clarifies what information is considered “public,” and describes the process by which information may be obtained. Attorneys Dwight Yoder and Sheila O’Rourke will use real-life examples to illustrate how these laws are implemented.

A light lunch is included.

To register, call 717.291.1700 or email RSVP@gkh.com.

Protecting Trademarks and Copyrights

Date:          Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Time:          12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

Location:    The offices of Gibbel Kraybill & Hess LLP, 2933 Lititz Pike

Interstate commerce, websites, social media and their intersection with intellectual property (IP) make branding (i.e., trademarks) and created content (i.e., copyrights) more important than ever. Proactive businesses and nonprofits choose to take specific steps to protect their IP, and defend against allegations of trademark or copyright infringement. Those leaders create, develop, register, enforce and otherwise maintain their IP, but also understand the risks of potentially infringing others’ IP. GKH attorneys Peter Kraybill, Jonna Stratton and Angelo Fiorentino will cover a case study of current IP protection efforts, focusing on trademarks and copyrights. They will answer:

  • What are the types of IP?
  • How are trademarks or copyrights acquired?
  • Why protect, register and enforce trademarks and copyrights? How is this done?

A light lunch is included.

Elvin Kraybill and Everence Representatives Present Interactive Estate Planning Seminar

Estate Planning SeminarOn March 26 GKH attorney Elvin Kraybill joined Everence’s Clair Sauder and Nikki Shingle for an interactive and educational seminar at the Landis Homes Campus. A standing room only crowd had a chance to ask estate planning questions to an attorney, a financial planner, and a charitable service representative. Participants addressed these questions, and more:

  • Why do I need an estate plan? (And is that the same as having a will?)
  • When and how should I give to my children? (And can I give them too much?)
  • How can an estate plan represent my values and passions beyond family?
  • How do I stay current with tax laws?
  • What are the benefits and downsides of naming children or charities as beneficiaries of trusts, insurance policies, or IRAs?

If you have unanswered estate planning questions that are keeping you awake at night, contact the knowledgeable and experienced attorneys on GKH’s estate planning and administration team: John Gibbel, Elvin Kraybill, Peter Kraybill, Marci Miller, Ann Martin and Justin Bollinger.
