Description: Join us for the return of this informative class, which provides practicing attorneys with an overview of the major differences among the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct. Those who attend will learn from our faculty experts how these sets of rules differ in the areas of fees, confidentiality, conflicts, conduct of litigation, client funds, contacts with third parties, advertising, and solicitation of clients.
The panel will also address conflict of laws issues aimed at determining which jurisdiction’s rules might apply to a particular attorney or scenario. They will discuss steps that an attorney can take to attempt to comply with all applicable rules, even when they differ. The panel will use hypotheticals and practical examples to illustrate the application of the ethics rules.
This class is a must for all attorneys whose practice takes them to one or more of these jurisdictions.
