Program Description

Ethics Refresher 2011 (Parts 1 through 6) (Live teleconference presented by Richard Clem). This will be a comprehensive review of the Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa. All three states have adopted substantially similar rules governing lawyers, and this course will review the rules as adopted in all three states. Where the rules differ, we will go over the differences. Seeing these differences is useful for the practitioner in that particular state, but also gives insight into the meaning of the rule in other states. And since the same model rules serve as the basis for most states´┐Ż rules, this course will provide practical guidance for attorneys in most U.S. jurisdictions. 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. Each program can be taken by itself, but is part of the longer six-hour program.

This will be a live telephone conference call CLE. The speaker, Richard Clem, will be speaking live to teleconference participants from St. Paul, Minnesota. Upon registration, you will be given the telephone number to dial, and an access code to enter. This will be a toll-free number from the United States. Participants outside the United States will call a U.S. phone number in the 713 area code. You will also be e-mailed a copy of the course materials. There will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions during the conference call. In addition, it will be possible to send written questions to the speaker via e-mail, and these questions will be addressed during the call.

When registering, please provide the phone number from which you plan to call. There will be an automatic list of participants generated based upon Caller ID, and this list will be used to verify attendance. If you need to call from a different telephone, please inform me after the program so that I can verify attendance. A certificate of attendance will be e-mailed after the program to verified attendees.
