Professional Responsibility - Legal and Business Ethics in the Solo/Small Firm EnvironmentNoon - 1 pm - Room 100
Solo and small firm attorneys run into a variety of ethical dilemmas. Not only do they have to know how to approach legal ethical problems, but they also need to know just as much about business ethics because they must run their law firms as a business.
Come learn more about the legal and business ethical dilemmas that attorneys encounter and how to problem solve!
We will have a panel that will include a solo practitioner, someone from the business school, a malpractice attorney, and someone from the state bar to help cover all bases. We will also have a moderator to help facilitate the event!
