Our panel of experts will discuss an attorney's ethical obligations as set forth in the ABA Model Rules of Professional Responsibility. Hypotheticals will be discussed to illustrate these rules in practice.

At some point in their careers, most lawyers will encounter a client with psychiatric disabilities. Representing these clients raises a number of ethical questions. These clients may have a limited ability to communicate desires and information, to understand information communicated by the attorney, and to understand choices, and may voice desires that do not appear to be in their best interests.

Topics addressed include:
  • Diminished Capacity (Rule 1.14)
  • Client Authority (Rule 1.2)
  • Communication (Rule 1.4)
  • Confidentiality (Rule 1.6)
  • Conflicts of Interest (Rules 1.7 & 1.8)
  • Declining/Terminating Representation (Rule 1.16)
  • List Price: $195.00
