About This Course

Codes of Ethics often occupy a gray area. Is the Code a policy? A part of By-laws? Is it enforceable? Does it apply to everyone? Is it mandatory, merely aspirational or just window dressing?

It has become increasingly common for organizations of all types – for-profit, non-profit, governmental, homeowner associations and others – to adopt such Codes. What these disparate entities have in common is a small cadre of persons acting on behalf of larger constituencies under the scrutiny of broadening groups of real and apparent stakeholders.

This two-part seminar explores the lawyer’s role in the development design, adoption, implementation and enforcement of Codes of Ethics, which can be an opportunity for great service to clients, and/or an attorney’s minefield, in part because practical issues may be as critical to the entity and its leadership as any legal consideration. This Seminar comprehensively reviews the purely legal matters, but leavening those legal matters with practical considerations, and providing a framework for reconciling the incongruities between them.
