PLI Releases Free On-Demand CLE Course: Ethical Issues in Pro Bono Representation 2017

The Practising Law Institute has released a new on-demand training program entitled Ethical Issues in Pro Bono Representation 2017. As part of PLI’s commitment to public service and the pro bono activities of the legal community, there is no fee to attend this program.

Using a lively, interactive format, this program will examine everyday issues of ethics and professional responsibility in pro bono and public interest practice.

Within the context of pro bono representation, using “all-new” hypotheticals as the basis of discussion, this program will review issues concerning:

  • Who is the client?
  • Lawyers serving on nonprofit boards
  • Limited scope representation
  • Representing clients with diminished capacity
  • Lawyers working with non-lawyer professionals
  • Client fraud and attorney-client privilege
