Course Description

An important yet overlooked issues in practicing law are the ethical considerations when ending formal relationships with clients. If you work in a large law firm such matters would hopefully be routine but small firms and private practice attorneys frequently make mistakes in this area. In this course we look at what the ethical framework is that underlies these principles. We then examine in detail the two types of withdrawals: optional and mandatory. Both case law and personal examples are explored to make these concepts concreate. We end the course by looking at different situations where formally ending a relationship is necessary and then explore some best practices.
