The Practising Law Institute is offering a free webcast of a live presentation from New York entitled Ethical Issues in Pro Bono Representation 2017 on December 14, 2017 9:00 am - 11:10 am Eastern.

As part of PLI’s commitment to public service and the pro bono activities of the legal community, there is no fee to attend this program.

Why You Should Attend

Using a lively, interactive format, will examine everyday issues of ethics and professional responsibility in pro bono and public interest practice.

What You Will Learn
  • Within the context of pro bono representation, using “all-new” hypotheticals as the basis of discussion, this program will review issues concerning:
  • Who is the client?
  • Confidentiality, conflicts of interest and privilege
  • Limited scope representation:  how it works for firm and in-house counsel
  • Representing clients with diminished capacity
Who Should Attend

All attorneys working in nonprofit organizations and legal service organizations, as well as those involved in pro bono practice in law firms and corporate legal departments.
