2023 The Bar Plan risk management program: The ethics and malpractice risk of “zealous representation” (attend in-person or virtual)

Although the Missouri Rules of Professional Conduct only briefly mention “zealous representation”, clients, courts, and disciplinary authorities still speak of it fondly and often expect and demand it. This program will look at the risks lawyers face when they cross the “zealous” line with clients, third-parties, other lawyers, courts and, yes, disciplinary authorities.
