This class is the second in a special MCLEZ series on The Rules of Professional Conduct. The Rules, written by the American Bar Association, are "the gold standard" when making critical decisions about ethics, compliance and best practice. The ABA Rules have been adapted by most state bars for the benefit and guidance of their members. In addition, the Rules are an authority across the U.S. during attorney disciplinary hearings and fee dispute arbitrations. In this class, David Graulich, Esq. examines Rule II (Counselor) and Rule III (Advocate). Among the topics covered: ethical guidelines when a lawyer serves as third-party neutral; standards for candor towards the tribunal; fairness to opposing party and opposing counsel; expediting litigation and avoiding delay, and trial publicity. Graulich illustrates the ABA rules with citations from actual cases as well as personal anecdotes from his experiences as a plaintiff's employment lawyer in Northern California.
