This program focuses on key issues of ethics, professionalism, trust and business accounting and law practice management that are essential for all new attorneys and, indeed, all attorneys admitted to practice law.

Topics include:

• law practice management best practices
o management of staff
o utilizing technology
o time management
o effective timekeeping
o file management
o establishing an effective conflict management system
o retainer agreements, declination letters
o billing best practices

o communications with clients, opposing counsel, third parties, and the courts
o responsibilities in handling client funds and confidential information
o avoiding malpractice
o handling ethical lapses when discovered

Though the program follows the curriculum and utilizes an instructional video set forth by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for the PA Bridge the Gap requirement, it also covers New Jersey practice and divergences between the New Jersey and Pennsylvania rules.

This course qualifies for 4.0 CLE credits in Pennsylvania, including 4.0 ethics credits (not 2.5); 4.5 CLE credits in New York, including 4.5 ethics credits (not 3.0); and 4.8 CLE credits in New Jersey, including 3.0 ethics credits.
