DC Bar Program On Pro Bono Challenges

Sunday, March 1, 2009 - 01:00

On Monday, March 16, the DC Bar will host a program titled Ethics & Pro Bono: Remaining Ethical While Doing Good. The session will begin at 6 p.m. and adjourn at 8:15 p.m. at the DC Bar Conference Center, 1250 H Street, NW, Washington, DC.

The DC Rules of Professional Conduct have numerous provisions that are particularly relevant to attorneys handling pro bono matters. From the applicability of rules requiring written fee agreements to dealing with pro se litigants or impaired clients, to conflict of interest issues, the program's faculty will help attorneys to better understand their ethical obligations.

The DC Bar ethics counsel will give attendees the tools to avoid ethical problems when representing pro bono clients. The session is extremely relevant to any attorney engaged in pro bono work.

Saul Singer of the DC Bar ethics counsel will present the program.
