Why You Should Attend
The field of matrimonial law is fraught with ethical pitfalls, and understanding potential dangers is essential to practicing effectively. Matrimonial attorneys must deal with a wide range of highly sensitive and personal matters, and must be particularly mindful of ethical obligations to clients, courts and third parties. This is undoubtedly why matrimonial cases have provided some of the most memorable ethics teaching moments.

Join us to match wits with our all-star panel as you play the Ethics Game Show: Matrimonial Edition. Chair Jeremy R. Feinberg and our expert faculty will review hypotheticals culled from some of the most outlandish matrimonial cases recently reported. What did those attorneys do? What would you do? What do the experts say you should do? Test your knowledge of the pertinent ethical rules as you match wits with our expert faculty, and contestants.

Hear about:
•Confidentiality
•Candor to the Court
•Inadvertent disclosure
•Third party communications
