As part of PLI's commitment to public service and the pro bono activities of the legal community, there is no fee to attend this program.

Don't let thorny ethical issues prevent you from getting involved in taking on pro bono cases.

Using a lively, interactive format, Ethical Issues in Pro Bono Representation 2013 will discuss common ethical concerns arising out of pro bono and public interest practice and practical solutions for handling these everyday issues.

Within the context of pro bono representation, using "all-new" hypotheticals as the basis for discussion, this program will review issues and new developments concerning:

  • The attorney-client relationship; beginning and ending the relationship and determining the scope of representation
  • Client identity and third party involvement
  • Client misconduct
  • Confidentiality, conflicts of interest and privilege — recent developments
  • Dealing with pro se adversaries and other third parties
  • Representing clients with diminished capacity
  • Ethical issues faced by firm and in-house counsel undertaking pro bono activities

This program will be very helpful to all attorneys working in nonprofit and legal services organizations, as well as those involved in pro bono practice in law firms and corporate legal departments.
