NEW! Eye on Ethics: Ethics of Positional Conflicts
You have an environmental law practice and are currently representing a client in county A that is defending against a complaint by the state environmental protection agency alleging that the client’s use of a certain pesticide poses a threat to the local groundwater.
Recently, you have been contacted by a prospective client in rural county B who wants you to file a suit against a neighboring farmer to prevent the farmer from using a similar pesticide. If you take the case, you would have to argue that the pesticide is toxic and will contaminate the local groundwater.
The Forum is a national educational, informational and networking event for professionals working in the area of client protection. Our open arena offers a stimulating mix of formal educational sessions with the opportunity for an informal exchange of ideas.
