Mens Rea Standards in the Law of Lawyering
Discussing what promises to be the seminal article on the subject, Professor Nancy Moore will share her conclusions about what state-of-mind standards should apply when the lawyer disciplinary rules themselves don't tell us. The panel will apply these principles to conflict of interest and confidentiality duties using real-world hypotheticals, and extend the discussion beyond discipline to mens rea standards in related liability, disqualification, and fee forfeiture contexts.
