The Ethics of Managing Multistate Law Practices

A 90-minute Teleconference and Live Audio Webcast
Thursday, December 21, 2006
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Eastern


Modern legal practice often requires in-house and law firm lawyers to work on and provide counsel on matters outside their states of licensure. If not carefully handled, providing legal services outside a state of licensure can expose a lawyer or firm to a variety of ethical dangers.

This live webcast and teleconference will give lawyers in both corporate and law firm settings practical ethics advice for managing multistate practices. Our speakers include leading authors and experts on multijurisdictional practice issues from the perspective of both in-house and outside counsel.

After listening to this program and reading the accompanying course materials, you will be able to:

  • identify potential ethical issues and related consequences when providing advice and services across state lines
  • take steps to minimize the risks that out-of-state activities constitute the unauthorized practice of law
  • determine which state's legal rules likely govern a multistate matter
  • create strategies to enhance ethical operations of multijurisdictional lawyers and practices
