    Closed Captioned.

    The conspiracies to influence admissions decisions at major universities in the United States, colloquially known as the "Varsity Blues" scandal, raised many issues relating to conflicts of interest. Some of the accused entered into joint representation engagements and hired attorneys who also represented some of the universities. One lawyer simultaneously represented a husband and wife as defendants in this criminal proceeding. What are the benefits and risks of joint representation in this context? Another firm represented criminal defendants when it also represented a victim/witness in an unrelated matter. Are these engagements acceptable? When and how can these clients waive conflicts of interest? Our speakers will examine these issues by presenting and analyzing real life and hypothetical scenarios and providing guidance for handling these types of conflicts of interest when they arise.

    Attendees can expect to learn the following:

    • Discuss how to spot and evaluate:
      • Various types of current client conflicts
      • Former client conflicts
      • Imputation risks
    • Examine which types of conflicts are subject to waiver and which cannot be waived
    • Analyze Model Rules 1.7, 1.9 and 1.10 as applied to the conflicts issues with current and former clients raised in the "Varsity Blues" litigation.
