Description

The Model Rules, as adopted, are quite clear in their mandates for attorneys, describing the responsibilities that attorneys must accept and the prohibitions by which they must abide. They elucidate quite definitely the What of ethical requirements, but are understandably light on the practical How of complying well and effectively, especially in the day-to-day details of practicing law.

This CLE Program is created and presented by a 40+ year veteran of practice in a wide variety of roles, from private practice to in-house counsel to government and non-profit service, with experience as a litigator, arbitrator, hearing officer and mediator.

The program is comprised of 4 main sections, each of which begins with direct presentation of selected Model Rules and proceeds then to provide suggestions, recommendations, advice and information about how attorneys may fulfill their duties professionally, ethically and with positive effects for themselves and for their clients.
