Join nationally acclaimed ethics authority Tom Spahn for an informative and entertaining ethics seminar followed by watching the Washington Capitals battle the Montreal Canadiens in a CLUB LEVEL SUITE with a scrumptious dinner spread. Guests are welcome.

This fun and interactive program will use hypotheticals to explore the ethical issues that can arise when lawyers practice law in states where they are not licensed. Topics include:

  • The effect of lawyers practicing law in states where they are not licensed
  • The permissibility of lawyers giving advice about the law of states where they are not licensed
  • The ability to practice "virtually" in other states
  • Litigators' ability to be admitted in another state's court
  • Permissible temporary practice by lawyers in states where they are not licensed, in both the litigation and the transactional contexts
  • The rules governing lawyers moving permanently to another state
  • The ability of lawyers not licensed in the state where they practice to represent clients before federal agencies, in federal court, and in matters involving federal law
  • Limitations on in-house lawyers practicing in states where they are not licensed
  • The ability of foreign lawyers to practice in the U.S.

In addition to receiving one live-interactive Ethics credit the day of the program, participants will get a 4-credit Virginia CLE Online Bundle good for one year to buy the live-interactive webcasts or online seminars of their choosing.
