$ 89 Ethics and Criminal Law In Stock

In this program, attorneys will be exposed to the array of ethical issues that they are likely to encounter in criminal practice. Ethical issues neither arise in a vacuum nor can they always be anticipated. Typically, they force themselves on the busy lawyer amidst the hurly-burly of a hotly contested criminal trial. Sometimes they arise in the pretrial phases; sometimes before a trial - or even a crime - is contemplated.

Many practicing attorneys fail to recognize ethical issues when they arise. There rarely are clear-cut right and wrong answers to many of the ethical dilemmas that occur in criminal practice; however, a clear and careful resolution of these issues is the responsibility the attorney under the rules of professional conduct. It is the purpose of this program, led by attorney Saad Siddiqui, to ensure that such recognition occurs at the earliest possible time so that attorneys may think about and decide how to resolve these ethical issues as soon as possible.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize the times ethical issues are most likely to arise in criminal practice  
  2. Identify best practices for resolving these ethical issues
  3. Discuss the applicable ethical rules
