Course Description

This class is part of 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 Section VIII (Maintaining the Integrity of the Profession). Among the topics covered: Bar Admission and Disciplinary Matters, Judicial and Legal Officials, Reporting Professional Misconduct, Misconduct and Disciplinary Authority; Choice of Law. 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.
