  • Description
    The mandates for attorneys as dictated by the Model Rules explain the responsibilities and prohibitions that all practitioners must adopt and abide by. And while they explain the ethical requirements of attorneys, they don’t necessarily explain how that compliance should occur and their impact on the daily practice of law. Designed a presented by a 40+ veteran practitioner who has experience in private practice and non-profit service and in-house counsel as a litigator, arbitrator and mediator, this CLE course will present the model rules and then provide suggestions and recommendation on fulfilling the obligations they imply.
