On Demand: The Buck Stops Here #MCLE

Like law firm attorneys, in-house counsel face many ethical and professionalism challenges in their daily practices. And like law firm attorneys, in-house counsel are subject to the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct. However many of the Rules often seem inapplicable to those practicing in-house. This online course seeks to bridge the gap between perception and reality, and answer ethical and professionalism questions in-house counsel face every day.

Who is the client? What determines “competence”? What to do when a CEO wants to violate the law? When can an attorney invest in his employer?

This online course answers these questions and others using three in-house counsel at various stages of their careers.

By the end of the course, attorneys will have (1) identified several Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct that delineate the responsibilities of in-house counsel, and (2) applied the Rules of Professional Conduct to novel ethical and professionalism situations.
