    Model Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4(c) prohibits lawyers from being dishonest, deceitful, fraudulent and from misrepresenting the facts. Seems simple enough, until you want to craft an argument that highlights only the facts that are advantageous to your client and to yourself.

    Join Dolores Dorsainvil (Assistant DC Disciplinary Counsel) and Sara Van Deusen (Ethics and Conflict Counsel, Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell) as they focus on the intent requirements – or lack thereof – in Model Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4(c) and how state supreme courts sanction lawyers who run afoul of the rule when they fail to disclose material facts, advertise their services using social media, and even communicate within their own firm. Our panel will also address the ethics rules at issue when lawyers supervise – or play a part in – covert investigations.

    At the conclusion of this program, you will be able to:

    • Evaluate the ethics issues presented when a lawyer supervises or is a part of a covert investigati
