Ethics in Legal Practice
An Update and Review of Recent Ethics Opinions
Review of Ethics Opinions Issued in 2017
Highlights from 2017 | Year in Review
Attorneys everywhere are under increasing scrutiny. The pressure to avoid ethical violations is high.
More than 20 ethics opinions were issued by the New York State Bar Association Committee on Professional Ethics in 2017. The ABA, City Bar and NYCLA also issued many opinions on topics including 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.
Featuring an esteemed panel, this program will provide you with an overview of recent ethics opinions of interest. You will hear about the opinions directly from members of the Committee. Panelists will also provide an overview of select opinions from the ABA, City Bar and NYCLA.
Ethics programs are designed to help you better understand your professional responsibilities and avoid risky situations that can jeopardize your practice.
Register today and stay current on the quickly evolving rules of conduct and get an overview of recent ethics opinions.
