Immigration practitioners are frequently confronted with a wide scope of ethical issues. This course, presented by Ruby Li and Tao Li from Gibney, Anthony & Flaherty LLP, reviews the practical considerations of ethical business immigration issues which may arise in every day practice. Specifically, this course covers general practice considerations, dual representation and conflicts, confidentiality, and unauthorized practice of law. The course will also include hypothetical exercises which mirror issues that practitioners frequently confront. Additionally, this course will cover best practices on how to avoid and resolve ethical conflicts in the business immigration context. Finally, the course will cover potential repercussions of ethical violations.
This course originally appeared as a part of our December 2019 Bridge the Gap event.
