Ethics 2012: Part 4. (Video replay) presented by Richard Clem. This will be a comprehensive look at the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct covering these areas. We'll cover Rules 5.1 through 6.5 during this part of the presentation. Since nearly identical rules have been adopted in most other states, this program serves as a good refresher for the rules in those states as well. We'll spend most of our time looking at the "black letter" rules, a topic which is often overlooked at most ethics CLE programs. However, there will be opportunities for discussion of the myriad of "gray areas" that arise whenever one looks at legal ethics. One hour. Originally presented in St. Paul, MN, June 14, 2012.
Nuts and Bolts of Minnesota Appellate Practice (Video replay) presented by Richard Clem. For the attorney unexpectedly faced with a case before the Minnesota Court of Appeals, it can be a daunting challenge. While the Minnesota Rules of Appellate Procedure are not onerous, they do impose requirements that might be very different from what the trial attorney is used to. In some cases, seemingly innocent violations of these rules can be disastrous. We'll walk through the rules and give practical guidance on how to file a notice of appeal, how to order a transcript, how to write and assemble a brief, and even what color the brief's cover needs to be, and how it should be bound. This course will put you at ease if you are ever required to file an appeal, or if the opposing party files an appeal in a case in which you prevailed. The course materials include detailed forms and checklists, and references to the rules. Two hours, five minutes. Originally presented in Eagan, MN, June 13, 2011.
Ethics 2012: Part 5. (Video replay) presented by Richard Clem. This will be a comprehensive look at the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct covering these areas. We'll cover Rules 7.1 through 8.5 during this part of the presentation. Since nearly identical rules have been adopted in most other states, this program serves as a good refresher for the rules in those states as well. We'll spend most of our time looking at the "black letter" rules, a topic which is often overlooked at most ethics CLE programs. However, there will be opportunities for discussion of the myriad of "gray areas" that arise whenever one looks at legal ethics. One hour. One hour.
