These two one-hour ethics session replays cover topics germane to all practitioners:
- Making referrals
- Lack of capacity in clients and lawyers
The Ethics of Referrals in Elder Law
(From 25th Annual Advanced Elder Law Update Seminar, held live on site in September 2016)
Elder law attorneys routinely make referrals to other lawyers, accountants, financial planners, and others. What are the responsibilities of the elder law attorney making the referral?
Ethics: Dealing with Lack of Capacity in Clients and Lawyers
(From The Douglas W. Conner 37th Annual Advanced Estate Planning and Administration Seminar, held live on site in April 2016)
As baby boomers age, more often we will find ourselves dealing with clients who may be impaired or lack capacity. We also may have to address how to deal with lawyers in our own firms who may not be competent to continue practicing law. This session discusses the various ethical rules and opinions that we can rely on in dealing with these situations.

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance. If you enter a seminar late or leave it early, or both, you must reflect those adjustments accurately in the credits you report on your credit reporting form. A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
