Thursday, January 1, 2009 - 01:00

The State Bar of Arizona has developed a webcast titled Ethics 911: Inside the Ethics Hotline to explore the most common inquiries to the stare bar ethics hotline. It is scheduled for Wednesday, January 21, from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

The seminar format will use hypotheticals based on the most common inquiries to the state bar about the top eight subject areas of hotline calls: all sorts of conflicts, client confidentiality, terminating representation, reporting misconduct, safekeeping property, fees, unauthorized practice of law, and communicating with a represented person.

Among the faculty, all seasoned members of the state bar's committee on the Rules of Professional Conduct, are Andrew S. Jacob, Shughart Thomson & Kilroy; Angela Napper, state bar assistant ethics counsel; and Anna M. Unterberger, Maricopa County Public Defender's Office.
