Confidentiality: Non-Clients' Misconduct
JURY ASSEMBLY ROOM, THIRD FLOOR
Partner, McGuire Woods LLP
This interactive program uses hypotheticals to explore lawyers’ confidentiality and disclosure duties in the context of non-clients’ misconduct, including:
determining what state's ethics rules apply;
lawyers’ possible duty to disclose non-clients’ felonies or child abuse;
corporate lawyers’ “reporting up” employee misconduct;
friendly and adverse non-clients' false testimony;
lawyers’ duty to report other lawyers’ misconduct (including lawyers subject to the duty, whom they must report, the reporting duty’s standards and timing, and the role of lawyers' confidentiality duty).
2.0 hours of ethics CLE credit pending.
