    A core component of competent advocacy is preparing witnesses to testify. Failing to do so may be its own ethical violation. In this webinar, Douglas J. Ende, Chief Disciplinary Counsel for the Office of Disciplinary Counsel at the Washington State Bar Association, Wendy J. Muchman, Professor of Practice, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, and Lucian T. Pera, Partner, Adams and Reese, LLP, navigate this topic in an informative, thought-provoking and undoubtedly, entertaining way. Through the use of hypotheticals and some recent real world examples, we'll consider a lawyer's obligations when preparing a witness, including what is permissible and what constitutes unethical coaching. We'll also tackle the newest wrinkle in this area-witness coaching in remote settings, as well as strategies to prevent it. Join us as we discuss this topic in relation to Model Rules 1.1, 1.2, 3.3, 3.4, 4.4, and 8.4.

    Featuring: April M. McMurrey (moderator) of the Colorado Supreme Court Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel; Douglas J. Ende, Chief Disciplinary Counsel for the Office of Disciplinary Counsel at the Washington State Bar Association; Wendy J. Muchman, Professor of Practice, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law; and Lucian T. Pera, Partner, Adams and Reese, LLP.
