Responsibilities Regarding Nonlawyer Assistance (1 hour of Ethics)

Dec 13, 2017
1:00 pm- 2:00 pm ET
Are you overworked? Doing too much? Do you need some help? Perhaps you're considering hiring a non-lawyer assistant (e.g., law student, paralegal, etc.) to lighten your load. Or you have recently hired such a person. If so, then don't miss this webinar by nationally-renowned Duquesne Law Professor Mark Yochum. In the theatrical style that has made Professor Yochum one of the most popular CLE presenters in the country, he will help you to more fully appreciate the ethical obligation of supervision.
In this webinar, Professor Mark Yochum will examine the ethical obligation of supervision as set forth in Rule 5.1 and 5.3 of the ethics rules and the potential pitfalls that lawyers must avoid to prevent violating other ethical duties to clients (e.g., competence, diligence, confidentiality, etc.). In particular, the webinar will cover:

  • The inherent conflict between independent contractor status and the duty to supervise
  • Avoiding assisting in the unauthorized practice of law
  • Protecting client confidentiality
  • Ensuring competent and diligent client representation
  • Screening for possible conflicts of interest
  • And more
This program is eligible for 1 hour of Ethics in NY.
