Ethics Pitfalls for New and Not-So-New Attorneys

About the Program:
Lawyers embarking on the journey into practice often forget some of the basic ethical rules that they were taught in law school. This course will cover the rules of conduct applicable to the most common types of legal work that new lawyers in a solo or small firm situation may encounter as well as ethical issues with law firm management (i.e. safekeeping of client property and advertising).

The former chief disciplinary counsel has handled over 1000 cases, and he will address these issues according to several actual cases and problems.
