The Changing Ethical Landscape of Litigation

Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner of the firm, will serve as moderator of the two-hour program that has been approved for two hours of professional responsibility credit by the MCLE Board. Joining him will be panelists Robert Burns, Professor of Ethics, Northwestern University School of Law; Jayne Reardon, Executive Director, Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism; and the Hon. Deborah Dooling (ret.) who served on the bench for two decades in the Cook County Circuit Court.

Now in its 11th year, the free webinar attracts more than 3,000 attendees as panelists review a number of hypotheticals and discuss the appropriate Rules of Professional Conduct that apply. Among the topics expected to be discussed are confidentiality, privilege and work product, conflicts of interest, contacting non-clients, dealing with experts, disclosure obligations, social media and electronic discovery.

The webinar will be held live at DePaul University School of Law on February 15, 2018 and is presented by Clifford Law Offices.

A group of in-house attorneys developed the National Law Review on-line edition to create an easy to use resource to capture legal trends and news as they first start to emerge. We were looking for a better way to organize, vet and easily retrieve all the updates that were being sent to us on a daily basis.In the process, we’ve become one of the highest volume business law websites in the U.S. Today, the National Law Review’s seasoned editors screen and classify breaking news and analysis authored by recognized legal professionals and our own journalists. There is no log in to access the database and new articles are added hourly. The National Law Review revolutionized legal publication in 1888 and this cutting-edge tradition continues today.
