CLE CREDITS:  1.0 ethics

Brought to you in partnership with WebCredenza
These telephone seminars are presented by national speakers who are experts in their areas of practice often ABA Section chairs, authors of books in their areas of practice, and heads of practice groups.

Lawyers are not only responsible for their own ethical conduct and decision making but also for the ethical practice of lawyers they supervise. Whether it’s a partner supervising the work of an associate or the lead lawyer on a case supervising a group of partners and associates, the supervising lawyer has responsibilities to ensure that the lawyers he or she is supervising do so ethically. These rules also apply to the lawyer’s supervision of paralegals and other non-lawyer support staff. When subordinate lawyers do not practice properly, supervising lawyers are potentially liable for misconduct. This program will provide you with a guide to ethical issues when lawyers supervise other lawyers and non-lawyer support staff.

  • Ethical issues when partners/senior lawyer supervise work of associates/other lawyers
  • Standards for ensuring compliance by subordinate attorneys and potential liability when they act improperly
  • Lawyer supervision of paralegals and other non-lawyer staff
  • Responsibilities of subordinate lawyers who rely on judgment of supervising lawyers
  • Special issues involved in billing the work of subordinate and co-counsel attorneys, and paralegals
  • In-house counsel of outside counsel
