Created on February 23, 2020




In this course, Carol G. Morokoff, an attorney with 30+ years of litigation experience, including four years as a sole practitioner, will discuss ethical dilemmas present both in litigation and small firm practice. These dilemmas include the unforeseen impact of personal life on professional life, money management, the ability to decide whether (and how) to decline a case, and the additional restrictions on domestic relations.  

Ms. Morokoff will cover currently trending topics as well as commonly recurring problems, and will identify how to handle ethical dilemmas when they do arise. The examples discussed will be pulled from the files of disciplinary committees nationwide.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize potential for ethical lapses in common situations
  2. Set up a practical framework to keep out of those situations
  3. Adapt strategies for remedying the ethical situation if one occurs
