Course Outline

  • Become an “ethics leader” and apply your lawyerly critical thinking skills to ethical situations and opportunities
  • Learn about the leadership strategies that work best for lawyers in leading law firms and legal organizations, in negotiations, in leading clients, in litigation, and in leading others to improve how they lead
  • Expand and improve your legal practice through legal ethics

This seminar, taught by Herb Rubenstein, author of Leadership for Lawyers, is designed to teach you to think critically about the Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct and become a thought leader in the field of legal ethics.

In addition, you learn about the leadership strategies that work best for lawyers in leading law firms and legal organizations, in negotiations, in leading clients, in litigation, and in leading others to improve how they lead. Leadership is not taught as a course in law school, so this course fills an important gap to help you become a better lawyer through becoming a better leader.

Virginia Rules of Professional Responsibility covered include:

  • Rule 1.1 (Competence)
  • Rule 1.6 (Confidentiality)
  • Rule 1.7 (Conflict of Interest)
  • Rule 2.10 (Third-Party Neutral)
  • Rule 3.3 and 4.4 (Candor Toward the Tribunal and Respect for Rights of Third Persons)
  • Rule 5.4 (Professional Independence of a Lawyer)
  • Rule 8.3 (Reporting Misconduct)
