Description:
The pace of change affecting law firm practices has never been quicker and tougher. As firms grow in size and adapt to and exploit new(er) technology, they must also properly supervise legal work, deal with lawyer mobility and transition, seek to enhance diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and address lawyer impairment issues while preserving wellness, among myriad other challenges that globalization presents. How do firms meet these ethical and professional challenges and what guidance do the professional conduct rules provide firms that encounter these multiple challenges? A panel of lawyer-ethicists will offer their thoughts and perspectives and raise awareness on these important and increasingly complex issues confronting law firms today.
