    While we laud our judicial system for its pursuit of justice in all areas, legal dilemmas and ethical issues may often come in conflict. The Rules of Professional Conduct were created to offer attorneys direction and guidance in seemingly irreconcilable situations. The always relevant CLE course, presented by Peter Kurshan, Esq., will review court decisions and Ethics Committee opinions from the New York State Bar Association (State Bar), the New York County Lawyer’s Association (NYCLA) and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York (City Bar). The course will also present a variety of RPC issues including:
    • Conflicts
    • Informed consent
    • Limiting the scope of representation
    • Advertising
    • Fee sharing
    • Reporting of unethical conduct
