DiGennaro Chairs NYSBA’s Ethics 2018: Legal Ethics in the Real World LIJune 4, 2018 |
Janice DiGennaro will be the local chair for the New York State Bar Association’s Ethics 2018: Legal Ethics in the Real World LI.
Description of Program:
Since the new Rules of Professional Conduct replaced the former Code of Professional Responsibility in 2009, the State Bar’s Committee on Professional Ethics has issued over 320 formal opinions. Many of these address new ways of promoting and providing legal services, and the ethical problems arising from those innovations.
This program will examine recent opinions and address changes in forms of practice, business development, fees and other kinds of compensation, and lawyer advertising, as well as questions about competence, confidentiality and conflicts of interest, and ethics issues that arise in litigation.
You will hear about these changes directly from members of the Committee, as well as leading lawyers, ethicists and disciplinary counsel. Whether or not you agree with what is happening, you owe it to yourself and your colleagues to stay current on the rapidly evolving rules of conduct.
The program will take place at the Melville Marriott and is approved for 4 total MCLE credits in Ethics.
