The Evolving Rules Of Professional Conduct (2015)

The Evolving Rules Of Professional Conduct (2015)

 

4.0 Total MCLE Credits: 4.0 Ethics

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 200 formal opinions.

Many of these opinions address new ways of promoting and providing legal services. Over the next few years, these may dramatically alter the way law is practiced and how the profession is viewed. 

The program will examine changes in forms of practice, business development, fees and other kinds of compensation, lawyer advertising and a host of other matters touching upon client confidentiality and conflicting interests.

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 our quickly evolving rules of conduct.
