Overview:

Ethics plays a crucial role in the legal industry. Because they are expected to uphold their integrity and professional responsibility at all times, lawyers must not only be critical about their actions but also mindful and proactive in understanding the ins and outs of legal ethics. Failure to abide by the rules of professional conduct could pose serious reputational damages, suspension of law license, and disbarment.

In a LIVE Webcast, legal ethics attorneys Dennis L. Kennedy (Bailey Kennedy) and Randy Johnston (Johnston Tobey Baruch) will present the audience with a comprehensive discussion of the current and emerging trends, developments, and critical issues in legal ethics. Speakers will also discuss common ethical dilemmas and share best compliance practices to mitigate pitfalls.

Key topics include:

  • Trends and Updates in Ethics Laws
  • Professional Responsibilities
  • Common Ethical Dilemmas in the Legal Industry
  • Avoiding Ethical Traps
  • Best Compliance Practices
  • 2021 Outlook
