In November, take advantage of this convenient and educational package of ethics and elimination of bias webcasts. What do you do when your client lies?

Fighting the Opioid Crisis: New Landmark Minnesota Legislation
Minnesota has enacted a new law that requires pharmaceutical companies to share the cost of fighting the opioid epidemic. It will provide expanded access to treatment, fund prevention efforts and public awareness, train providers, and increase access to opioid antagonists. Attorneys Michael Daub, board member of the Steve Rummler Hope Network, and Joan Bibelhausen, Executive Director of Minnesota Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, will discuss the new law, as well as opioid issues in the legal profession. 
– Michael H. Daub; Attorney at Law
– Joan Bibelhausen; Executive Director, Minnesota Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers

Ethics: Liar, Liar – What to Do When Your Client Lies
Whether they are afraid, confused, embarrassed, or just plain no good, clients sometimes lie to their attorneys and others. Those lies can have serious ethical implications for lawyers who do not deal with them appropriately. This presentation will help you apply the ethics rules to these uncomfortable situations.
– Eric T. Cooperstein; Law Offices of Eric T. Cooperstein

The Business Case for Diversity: Women Lawyers – As We See It
This presentation is a replay of a webcast originally presented June 28, 2019
Promoting diversity in the legal profession is not only the right thing to do, it’s also good for business. In the first hour, this program explains the overall financial and practical benefits of diversity. In the second hour, a panel of women lawyers will discuss the business case as it relates specifically to women. Is the business case reality or is it simply a pipe dream?

Business Litigation: Ethics and Civility
Minnesota is one of 21 states with an attorney oath that contains a specific reference to civility. Notwithstanding our solemn promise of courtesy, a lot of “ill-mannered” conduct falls outside of the reach of the ethics rules. Certain misconduct, however, is unquestionably both unprofessional and unethical. Join our esteemed presenters as they discuss the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct that touch upon issues of civility in the practice of law.
– Honorable William H. Koch; Hennepin County District Court
– Keshini M. Ratnayake; Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility

Tuesday, November 26, 2019
2:00 – 3:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Probate A to Z: Professional Responsibility
Julian Zebot and Diana Marianetti discuss professional responsibility in the context of estate administration. Join them for a closer look at issues of competence, scope of representation, diligence and communication, attorney’s fees, conflicts of interest, attorney as a witness, dealing with the court, dealing with unrepresented persons, and compliance with rules for tax practitioners. All attendees will receive a month of free access to the LinkedLaw edition of Minnesota CLE’s Minnesota Estate Administration Deskbook.
