What happens when a client sorta, kinda lies? Is it really even a lie? And what’s a lawyer to do about it? Well, it depends. …is it in a tribunal or a negotiation? …is it a statement of fact or law? Stuart Teicher, the CLE Performer, is going to try to help you keep your head afloat by explaining it all. Topics include:

  • A deep dive into Rule 3.3
  • An even deeper dive into Rule 3.3’s Comment [10]
  • A shallow swim around Rule 1.0(m) and the definition of a tribunal.
  • Discussion of Rule 4.1
