Description:

Chances are you studied ethics in law school. But now that you're a practicing attorney, you may find the "rules" taught in textbooks don't easily apply to the ethical decisions you're confronted with in the real world. You're concerned, because more and more attorneys are facing disciplinary action and litigation for their failure to "do the right thing." And you know you're not immune.

 

That's why taking just an hour out of your busy schedule to attend this webcast is so important. Recognize where ethical conflicts commonly arise in the practice of law, anticipate problems and take action to protect yourself from charges of ethical negligence. Don't put yourself at risk. Attend this webcast and gain the knowledge you need to do the right thing without fear of disciplinary action or litigation.
