Last Chance for Ethics Credit: Let's Talk Ethics

Leaders: Sara Rittman and Alan Pratzel 

What’s going on in the world of legal ethics? New discovery rules help address the ethical issues that have arisen in connection with subpoenaing documents from third parties. The overdraft reporting rule continues to bring common mistakes as well as misconduct to the fore. A recent amendment to Rule 5.31 opens the discipline system to more transparency. These and other topics will be fair game for our discussion.
