Ethics: How to Handle Sticky Professional Conduct Issues – Advice for the Well-Intentioned Attorney
You don’t steal money from your client, you don’t shred smoking-gun evidence, you don’t lie to opposing counsel. You are an ethical attorney.  Not all prohibitions, however, are so clear cut. Here’s a discussion about some of the important professional conduct issues that can trip up even the best-intentioned attorney, based on insights from the Director of the Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility.

Ethics: How to Manage Ethics, Negativity and Stress in the Legal Profession
Our duties as lawyers and 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. Lawyers frequently deal with contentious litigation, looming deadlines and a mountain of cases. We find ourselves surrounded by negativity and stress yet are held to high ethical standards. These factors may negatively affect how we conduct ourselves, both personally and professionally. The pandemic, social unrest and trauma in the face of institutional racism, economic downturn, and a hostile political climate multiplies the impact on our health. This presentation will focus on how stress, negativity and ethical duties can all affect each other and how we, as attorneys, can better manage those areas in our practice and in our lives.
