This program offers 1 participatory MCLE credit; 1 Ethics.
Pro Bono clients present ethical issues for attorneys that are often different than presented by fee-paying or contingent fee clients. Lawyers sometimes face difficult questions about defining who the client is, communication with clients, clients with diminished capacity, conflicts with fee-paying clients, and many others. Representation of nonprofit organizations also can present difficult ethical issues not faced with most for profit organizations.
Please join Toby J. Rothschild, Of Counsel to One Justice and retired general counsel of the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, for a presentation of the ethical considerations in pro bono work.
Speaker: Toby Rothschild,
