The District of Columbia Bar will present Inspiration or Impediment -- Balancing Legal Ethics with the Realities of Law Practice on Thursday, December 29, at the DC Bar Conference Center, 1100 K. Street, NW in DC.

It begins at 1:30 and ends at 4:45 p.m.

From conflict of interest rules to the evolving use of technology, legal ethics requirements have the potential to be assets to attorneys, an opportunity for exploitation, or a source of anxiety and confusion. Attendees of this entertaining and up-to-date ethics seminar will hone their ethics skills while examining developing areas of ethics law with the emphasis on current problem areas and controversies. This course will focus on the DC Rules of Professional Conduct, with a look at proposed changes to the ABA Model Rules, the experience of other jurisdictions, and practice realities. The seminar will explore topics such as How to Handle the Innocent Conflict of Interest, Updates on New Technology Ethics Clashes, Incivility and the Ethics of Self-Reporting, and Identifying the Line between Deceit and “Spin.”

The instructor is Jack Marshall of ProEthics Ltd.
