Program Description

Indiana Ethics Refresher 2012 (Live program presented by Richard P. Clem). This will be a comprehensive review of the Indiana Rules of Professional Conduct. This has been a popular program in other states whose rules follow the model ABA rules. This program will focus on the rules as adopted in Indiana, but we will also highlight different versions that have been adopted in other states. In many cases, the differences in the rules provide insights even in states that follow a slightly different version. Many lawyers review the Rules in their entirety only once, and that is before they take the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam in law school. But the rules change over the years and decades, and some of the finer points might be forgotten. Therefore, this course will serve as a useful refresher for the practitioner to avoid ethical pitfalls.

This three hour program will cover most of the rules. The included course materials cover the rules in their entirety.

This will be a live lecture, and there will be opportunities for questions and discussion.
