This program offers an overview of ethical problems that arise across a range of practice areas. Members of the Committee on Professional Discipline will present short vignettes which, while often entertaining, are actually based on true experiences in actual law practice. Many CLE programs offer a detailed look at specific ethical issues, or ethical issues just within certain specialties.
This program will provide practitioners with an overview of important issues affecting cooperatives and condominiums, including a consideration of issues facing cooperative and condominium boards and owners and in particular current updates in the law pertaining to objectionable conduct, the business judgment rule, and legal issues related to financing of newly constructed buildings. In addition, a case law update will be provided as well as a discussion on nagging Coop/Condo issues.
If you haven't thought about criminal law since you were required to take it in law school, what can you expect to encounter when a client calls you in the middle of the night about a criminal matter? What questions do you ask? How do you counsel your client? What should you be sure not to do? What rights should you preserve? What ethical issues do criminal defense attorneys face, and how should you navigate them if they come up? And what's next?
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") continues to be one of the focal points of the Securities Exchange Commission's and the Department of Justice's enforcement program. Enforcement actions, civil and criminal, are continuing at pace and the cost of resolving FCPA actions is getting more onerous. At the same time, the U.K. Bribery Act and other foreign anti-corruption laws are gaining in prominence. Multinational companies increasingly face bribery risks in their international business activities. Such risks can, however, be detected and managed. The experienced faculty of private practitioners, regulators, and prosecutors will provide an in-depth analysis of the FCPA's current trends and implications. The faculty will discuss timely important information on the latest enforcement trends, international developments, compliance best practices, and risk assessment and mitigation.
