  • During the pandemic we have witnessed many of our traditional views of how law should be practiced turned upside down.   But one thing remains constant:  Ethics and professional responsibility matter.  Join us as we discuss recent developments, including updates on solicitation and other advertising rules, reaching out to former clients, engaging in marijuana practice, making frivolous arguments, entering into restrictive covenants, the latest on remote working and UPL, and many more.  The panel will welcome questions and comments from the audience.
