    When faced with an ethical dilemma, government attorneys must strike the balance between the duty owed to their client, their employer, the judiciary, and the public at large. State ethics rules provide special rules for government attorneys with little guidance. On top of this, developments in technology and the use of social media have blurred the lines of a government attorney's public life versus their private life and the duty to report wrongdoing.

    Our expert panel will run through various ethical conundrums and use polling questions in order for participants to help identify a government lawyer's ethical obligation with respect to:
      • Reporting duties; duty of confidentiality; duty to provide competent representation, including proficiency in technology
      • Conflicts of interest for special government employees
      • Use of social media, pro bono work, political participation, and gift rules
