About This Course
Ethical issues force themselves on the busy lawyer amidst the whirlwind of an extremely contentious criminal trial. Sometimes they arise before trial-or even before a crime- occurs. Unfortunately, many practicing lawyers are unable to recognize ethical issues when they arise, largely because they are rarely clear-cut. However, it is the responsibility the attorney, under the rules of professional conduct, to find a straightforward resolution to any ethical dilemma that arises in a criminal case. The purpose of this CLE program is to ensure that attorneys are able to immediately recognize and resolve the vast array of ethical issues they are likely to encounter if they practice criminal law.
