Clifford Law Offices is sponsoring a free two-hour continuing legal education program on "The Ethics of Pre-Trial and Trial Work" in the ninth annual Clifford Law Offices Continuing Legal Education Series. The objectives of this program are to familiarize attorneys with the Rules of Professional Conduct involving pre-trial and trial issues. Typically, that involves evidentiary issues that face lawyers on a day-to-day basis - from witness preparation to spoliation of evidence, calling a party as a witness to influencers in closing argument. In particular, the objective of the course is to promote the civility of lawyers' conduct in preparation of trial and during trial. Lawyers will be made more aware of the particular Rules that govern their conduct. Hypothetical questions will be posed and a discussion by the panelists will ensue, exploring various answers to the professional responsibility issues raised using the Rules of Professional conduct as well as case law.
