Bridge the Gap: Essentials of the Rules of Professional Conduct
This program focuses on key issues of ethics, professionalism, and trust and business accounting that are essential for all new attorneys and, indeed, all attorneys admitted to practice law. Topics include:
• ethical issues and best practice issues in forming the attorney-client relationship;
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.
Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a lively discussion of ethical hypotheticals to illustrate the relevant and practical application of the rules in the daily practice of law.
