North Carolina Bar Association Schedules Ethics Seminar

Friday, February 1, 2008 - 00:00

The North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) is offering a CLE seminar titled Red Flags: A Practicing Lawyer's Guide to Legal Ethics.

The program will take place on Thursday, February 7 from 8:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at the NC Bar Center, 8000 Weston Parkway, Cary, NC. Registration begins at 8 a.m.

Ethical traps can snare not only the unwary but also those who think they understand State Bar rules. As practice becomes more complicated, more fast-paced and more competitive, lawyers must remain even more alert and well-informed about their ethical obligations. This seminar presents a series of hypotheticals - situations lawyers confront every day - and asks the audience to actively participate in a discussion of the best approach to identifying and solving these difficult dilemmas.

The speakers are Lawrence J. Fox, Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, and Alice Neece Mine, assistant executive director of the North Carolina State Bar Association.
