Section Five: LEGAL ETHICS

Ethical Pitfalls for Busy Lawyers

This presentation addresses often overlooked ethical issues that arise in pre-trial litigation, brief writing, and oral argument. Program participants will receive a series of hypothetical problems and, grouped into mock law firms, vote on an appropriate course of action. Following these group discussions, Judge Dietz will highlight relevant ethical rules and discuss how they might apply to the hypotheticals. The program will focus on legal disputes involving gun owners and federal firearm licensees and will apply the Model Rules of Professional Conduct.
