Description: This interactive course will advise lawyers about how to handle a challenging client while complying with the ethics rules. The course will consider a variety of scenarios in which a client can make the representation difficult, including:

Hypotheticals will be used to explore these situations, and faculty will discuss the ethics rules involved, including scope of representation, communication, confidentiality, conflicts, candor to tribunal, and fairness to opposing party and counsel.
