Litigation Skills Series: Ethics
Ethics rules are helpful in navigating difficult issues but what about the grey areas not covered by the rules? Facing a pro se litigant or difficult opposing counsel, advocating effectively for your client before a challenging fact finder, or representing a tough client are among the many challenges faced by public-interest lawyers and pro bono volunteers. These situations can be equally daunting to navigate, and understanding your options are vital to effective representation.
The Ethics training panel features:
- Gwen Washington, Pro Bono Attorney at Cleary Gottlieb,
- Megan Challender, Legal Manager at NVRDC, and
- June Lee, Director of the Immigrant Rights Legal Services Project at Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia.
Don’t worry, we have a safe space for you to learn how to avoid potential quagmires for public-interest and pro bono lawyers when facing these issues and more.
Note, this training is not an Ethics CLE and will not be eligible for CLE credit.
