The materials and interactive discussion will involve the best practices and the relevant Rules of Professional Conduct when using “forms” such as the Retainer, Conflict Waivers, By-Laws, Broker, and Loan Agreements. Some of the ethical issues to be discussed are conflicts, competence, scope of representation, diligence, communication, client confidences, legal fees, record keeping, and reporting misconduct.
