On Thursday, October 18, 2007, I will be presenting ‘Advanced Ethics’ on NALA Campus Live! sponsored by the National Association of Legal Assistants.
This course expands on the popular basic ethics course. It focuses on complex ethics issues faced by paralegals and legal assistants working in law firms, governmental agencies and corporations, with particular emphasis on the unauthorized practice of law, conflicts of interest and confidentiality. The rules, regulations and responsibilities guiding the ethical behavior of paralegal professionals are discussed, as well as case law, the ABA Model Rules, NALA’s Code of Ethics and Model Standards and Guidelines for the Utilization of Legal Assistants.
The presentation begins at 12:00 p.m. CST. For additional information and registration go to www.nalacampus.com.
