Seminar Focus: Protecting A Law License

Wednesday, August 1, 2007 - 01:00

The New York County Lawyers' Association has scheduled a video replay of a CLE seminar titled Breakfast With NYCLA: How to Protect Your Law License.

The program will take place on Thursday, August 16 from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at the NYCLA Home of Law, 14 Vesey Street, New York City.

Given the intricacies of legal practice, there are many ethical pitfalls that the busy practitioner must avoid to prevent disciplinary sanctions. This course focuses on practical measures that lawyers can implement to preclude certain ethical issues that may arise in the course of client representation.

Taking a how-to approach, the panel shows how attorneys can protect themselves with regard to practices that may give rise to ethical concerns. A step-by-step explanation of the disciplinary process is also presented, along with an overview of the trends in areas giving rise to ethical concerns and the resulting disciplinary sanctions imposed on practitioners.

The program chair is Lew Tesser, Segal, Tesser & Ryan, LLP.
