Panel Discusses Professional Misconduct and Proposed Amendments to Model Rules

On April 9, 2016, the ABA Commission on Racial & Ethnic Diversity hosted a continuing legal education (CLE) program entitled “Pride and Prejudice and the Practice of Law: How Professional Conduct Rules and Newly Proposed Amendments to the Model Rules Deal with Professional Conduct” at the 2016 Spring Section Meeting & 11th Annual State & Local Procurement Symposium in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The program used a series of hypothetical situations to facilitate a discussion of the proposed amendment to Model Rule 8.4, as well as the current ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Jo Ann Engelhardt, Hon. William Missouri, and Daiquiri Steele served as panelists, and Akira Heshiki moderated the panel. This was a highly interactive panel with a lot of interaction among panelists and participants.
