Program Description

In this program, Professor Longan will moderate a discussion of a series of common problems on legal ethics and professionalism with judges from diverse courts.

In the first hour of the program (1 hours of ethics CLE), the focus will be on the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct. Discussion will be roughly evenly divided between duties to clients (including especially competence, diligence, communication, and conflicts of interest) and duties to tribunals (including especially candor, fairness to the opposing party and counsel, and impartiality and decorum of the tribunal).

The second hour (1 hour of Professionalism CLE) will focus on the Georgia Lawyer’s Creed and Aspirational Statement on Professionalism. Discussion will be roughly evenly divided between the aspirations of professionalism that apply to interactions with opposing parties and their counsel and those that apply to the courts, other tribunals, and those who assist them.
