In this 3.5+ hour webinar, Professor Michels offers a comprehensive overview of the unique attorney ethics system in New Jersey. He begins by describing the disciplinary system by which the Supreme Court exercises its constitutional jurisdiction over the practice of law in this State. Through specific hypotheticals, Professor Michels elucidates the ethical considerations relevant to establishing and maintaining an effective client relationship, including potential conflicts of interest and confidentiality concerns. He goes on to consider fee arrangements, billing and collections in the ethics context. Finally, again through hypothetical real-life situations, he considers disclosure requirements and representation questions in the corporate setting. During each segment of the video presentation, hyper-links are provided to connect you immediately to the primary and secondary authorities cited.
Seasoned attorneys will find this webinar a vital refresher, as much as new attorneys will find it a necessary introduction to New Jersey's attorney ethics system.
