October 27: Webcast - Ethical Issues in Working with Pro Bono Clients

Pro Bono clients are like any other clients in many ways. But some Pro Bono clients present ethical issues for attorneys that are often different than presented by fee-paying or contingent fee clients. Lawyers sometimes face difficult questions about defining who the client is, communication with clients, clients with diminished capacity, conflicts with fee-paying clients, and many others. Representation of nonprofit organizations also can present difficult ethical issues not faced with most for profit organizations.
As part of the ABA’s National Celebrate Pro Bono Week, please join Toby J. Rothschild, retired general counsel of the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, for a free one-hour briefing as the follow topics are addressed:
  • What is Pro Bono?
  • What ethical issues can arise in representation of Pro Bono clients?
  • How can you make sure your representation is conducted within the Rules of Professional Conduct?
