December 11: Webcast+NYC - Ethical Issues in Pro Bono Representation

Using a lively, interactive format, Ethical Issues in Pro Bono Representation 2015 will examine everyday issues of ethics and professional responsibility in pro bono and public interest practice.
Within the context of pro bono representation, using “all-new” hypotheticals as the basis of discussion, this program will review issues concerning:

  • The attorney-client relationship
  • Who is the client?
  • Client misconduct
  • Confidentiality, conflicts of interest and privilege
  • Dealing with pro se adversaries and other third parties
  • Ethical issues faced by firm and in-house counsel undertaking pro bono activities
  • Collaboration with nonlawyers
  • Unauthorized practice of law (either by misusing non-lawyer assistants or by practicing outside one's, own jurisdiction)
  • Limited scope representation
All attorneys working in nonprofit organizations and legal service organizations, as well as those involved in pro bono practice in law firms and corporate legal departments.
