Within the context of pro bono representation, using “all-new” hypotheticals as the basis for discussion, an expert faculty will review these common ethical concerns:


Who is the client?


Confidentiality, conflicts of interest and privilege


Limited scope representation: how it works for firm and in-house counsel


Representing clients with diminished capacity


This program will be very helpful to all attorneys working in nonprofit organizations and legal services organizations, as well as those involved in pro bono representation in law firms and corporate legal departments.


As part of PLI’s commitment to the public service and pro bono activities of the legal community, there is no fee to attend this program or view the Webcast.
