Ethics Refresher 2017 Live lecture presented by Richard Clem. This will be a comprehensive review of the Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and other states. 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.
In addition to the ethics program, we will review some recent decisions from appellate courts in Iowa and around the region. Topics include: Criminal law, statements to jailhouse informants, search and seizure; election law, felons; violation of ordinance as negligence per se; and more.
During the Monday and Tuesday programs, the entire ethics program is presented in three hours, followed by two additional hours covering recent appellate decisions. On Wednesday through Friday, one hour of the ethics program is presented each day. You can take the three parts in any order.
The course materials are available at the following links:
All programs will be presented live by Richard P. Clem, who has a B.A. in history from the University of Minnesota, and a J.D., cum laude, from Hamline University School of Law. He has been in private practice in the Twin Cities for 25 years. His reported cases include: Asociacion Nacional de Pescadores a Pequena Escala o Artesanales de Colombia v. Dow Quimica de Colombia, 988 F.2d 559, rehearing denied, 5 F.3d 530 (5th Cir. 1993), cert. denied, 510 U.S. 1041 (1994); LaMott v. Apple Valley Health Care Center, 465 N.W.2d 585 (Minn. Ct. App. 1991); Abo el Ela v. State, 468 N.W.2d 580 (Minn. Ct. App. 1991).
