Christopher Rizek to Speak on Ethics and Professionalism CLE Webinar
Program: What's a Young Attorney to Do When...?
Event Sponsor: American Bar Association, Live CLE Webinar
This webinar will explore the kinds of ethical problems young lawyers are likely to encounter in their first years of practice and will remind them of the applicable rules in Circular 230 and the Code and Regs, as well as the aspirational standards set forth in Circular 230. How can young lawyers make sure that their employers have reviewed with them the protocols within the firm for raising ethical questions? To whom should young lawyers turn when they have questions and concerns about their responsibilities that a supervising attorney seems to be disregarding? What topics should receive a young lawyer's primary attention as s/he starts out in practice? Are there any special concerns for young associates in the first months of making the transition from law school to practice?
