As the field of law continues to evolve, it becomes more difficult for lawyers to keep up with the changes, particularly when these relate to the ethical principles that they need to maintain. The legal system is dependent on an ethical environment, and at the same time, it plays a crucial part in creating a just and ethical society. Lawyers and their law firms, therefore, have to remain in compliance with rules and regulations concerning ethics and professional responsibilities.

Speakers will share helpful risk mitigation strategies and offer awareness in reaching their goals while complying with ethical rules and regulations.
