    Ethical Considerations and Best Practices When Representing Low Income and Vulnerable Individuals

    ABA Meeting (ABA Registration Required)

    Dec 16, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Webinar | Free for ABA Members This webinar will explore ethical issues confronting civil legal aid and/or pro bono lawyers who represent clients with diminished capacity. ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 1.14 provides the backdrop for the discussion. Representing clients with diminished capacity implicates other ABA Model Rules as well; for example, ABA Model Rule 1.4 (Communication) and ABA Model Rule 1.6 (Confidentiality). Faculty will use scenarios to illustrate ethical dilemmas and solutions, so that you will better understand how to work with low-income and vulnerable clients ethically and effectively, and in a way that is trauma-informed and builds trust. Speakers:  Marianne J. Conrad, Indiana Legal Services, Inc. Jenny K. Mittelman, State Bar of Georgia Moderator: Ellyn Rosen of the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility
