Ethics for Corporate Counsel 2018
The Corporate Counsel Section continues its series of well-received, timely programs on ethical issues facing attorneys working for corporations and other business entities. With in-house counsel facing greater scrutiny and regulation on both the federal and state level, it is necessary for corporate counsel to be fluent in both the regulatory rules applicable to the corporations and business entities they represent as well as the rules governing the practice of law by corporate counsel. This program will assist in-house attorneys and other corporate attorneys in understanding and applying their ethical and legal obligations.
A panel of experts will explore ethical issues of particular concern to corporate counsel including emerging topics and recent issues, supervision of employed attorneys in the corporate legal department, ethical issues arising from recent trends such as the "Me Too" Movement, law enforcement raids and seizure of attorney files, and new developments affecting the attorney-client privilege.
Sponsored by the Committee on Continuing Legal Education and the Corporate Counsel Section.
