Description

Ethics rules are intended primarily to regulate lawyer acts when practicing law. But the rules do not always stop there. Lawyers can be held responsible and disciplined under ethics rules for things they do when acting outside of their practices. Lawyers may be disciplined under ethics rules for criminal conduct, including misdemeanors, entirely unrelated to their lawyerly conduct. They may be also be disciplined for any acts that involve dishonesty, misrepresentation, or any actions prejudicial to the judicial system. This program will provide you with a guide to circumstances in which ethics rules apply to lawyers when they act outside of law practice.

•    Dishonesty and misrepresentation when a lawyer is acting as a non-lawyer
•    Lawyers as business people – how counter-parties can allege ethical misconduct
•    Self-representation – when lawyers represent themselves in litigation, who can they communicate with?
•    Violations of law, including misdemeanors, as ethics violations
•    Restrictions on lawyers’ ability to market themselves in non-lawyer roles
