There are bad examples in every profession, even in the law. This webinar will help you from becoming the next bad example.
“Steering Clear of Lawyer Discipline” addresses several pitfalls of the trends in today’s legal field. Many recently licensed lawyers are going solo, practicing in small firm settings or are joining alternative legal service providers such as legal process outsourcing companies. The training provided by law schools may not sufficiently prepare soon-to-be lawyers for the ethical and related business challenges they will encounter, leaving them more vulnerable to disciplinary complaints once they begin practice.
Experts in the field of professional responsibility law will discuss twelve simple tips to help young lawyers steer clear of lawyer discipline and explain what to do if you find yourself on the receiving end of a complaint.
The panelists are Wendy Wen Yun Chang, a partner at Hinshaw & Culbertson, and Ellyn S. Rosen, Deputy Director and Regulation Counsel for the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility.
“It’s really failing to pay attention to the basics that can really end up biting you in the backside from a disciplinary perspective as well as a malpractice perspective,” Rosen says. “These tips focus on sound practice management skills.”
No law student or lawyer sets out to become a disciplinary statistic. So listen up!
