Faculty: David Graulich, Esq. -
This class is the third 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 IV (Transactions with Persons other than Clients) and Rule V (Law Firms and Associations). Among the topics covered: Truthfulness in Statements to Others; Communication with Persons Other Than Clients; Dealing with Unrepresented Persons; Respect for the Rights of Third Persons, and Responsibilities of Partners, Managers and Supervisory Lawyers. 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.
