When Do I Need Ethical Advice & Where Do I Get It?
Thursday, Jan 17 2013

Start the New Year with a comprehensive review of the most current attorney inquiries that the Committee on Professional Ethics has considered over the last year and a half of its work. This program will acquaint lawyers with the Committee’s work and explain how assistance to lawyers is provided by means of opinions, letter, and the Ethics Hotline. It will also explain how the Rules of Professional Conduct, decisions and commentary are weighed in responding to ethics inquiries. A prominent faculty will discuss and take questions from the audience on a wide variety of ethical issues through a series of actual concrete examples. For example, learn how you may use social media to perform jury research, get a primer on third-party litigation funding issues, and discover when and how you can make more room in your overcrowded office by returning client files. In addition, the program will address issues that frequently arise from the Ethics Hotline such as attorney advertising, solicitation of clients, simultaneous representation of multiple clients, conflict of interests, automatic credit card billing, and treatment of deposits in lawyer escrow accounts.
