    The depth and breadth of COVID 19 related economic fallout on the legal profession remain unknown. Already, experienced lawyers, young lawyers, and recent law graduates have been hit hard. The struggle to find and retain employment and to start and maintain a sustainable practice is more difficult than usual. The economic and health-related impacts of the Pandemic heighten risks that lawyers, in an effort to survive, will be drawn unwittingly or not into money-laundering and other financial schemes, thereby risking disbarment or suspension. It happened after the 2008 Great Recession. This is occurring at a time when the U.S. legal profession remains under heightened domestic and international pressure to take concrete regulatory steps to prohibit lawyers from involvement in or otherwise facilitating money laundering. This session will provide lawyers with the guidance necessary to help them comply with their ethical obligations and recognize and evaluate the risks so that they do not fall victim at this time of heightened vulnerability.
