Protecting Client Confidences: Asserting and Maintaining the Attorney-Client Privilege (60 MINUTES)
Attorneys have an ethical duty to protect their clients’ privileged information. And the scope of the privilege – and how best to set up protections on the front end – is often misunderstood. Your presenters discuss the following foundational topics: differentiating between business and legal communications for the purposes of protecting privilege, and protecting the privilege once it has been established.

Managing Ethics, Negativity and Stress in the Legal Profession (60 MINUTES)
Our duties as zealous advocates can put us in the line of fire of difficult parties and opposing counsel, while requiring us to maintain the integrity of the profession and respect the rights of others. We often deal with contentious litigation, looming deadlines and a mountain of cases. We are frequently surrounded by negativity and stress, yet are held to higher ethical standards. All of those factors oftentimes negatively affect how we conduct ourselves, both personally and professionally. This CLE will focus on how stress, negativity and ethical duties can all affect each other and how we, as attorneys, can better manage those areas of our practice and our lives.
– Chase L. Andersen; Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers; Saint Paul
– Judith M. Rush; Director of Mentor Externship; University of St. Thomas School of Law; Minneapolis
