Course Description

This class is the fourth 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 VII (Information about Legal Services). Among the topics covered: Communication Concerning a Lawyer's Services, Communications Concerning a Lawyer's Services: Specific Rules, Solicitation of Clients and Political Contributions to Obtain Legal Engagements or Appointments by Judges. 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.
