CD: $80 BAEC Members, $145 Non-Members
In December of 2008, the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals and the four Presiding Justices of the Appellate Divisions announced a very important change in the ethics rules applicable to New York lawyers. They decided to replace the Code of Professional Responsibility (which was first adopted nearly 40 years ago) with new Rules of Professional Conduct. This change became effective on April 1, 2009. The new rules add many provisions that are not in the existing disciplinary rules; they revise many of the existing rules in material respects; and they use a completely different organizational structure. To assist you in becoming familiar with the changes introduced in these new Rules of Professional Conduct, the Professional Ethics Committee of the Bar Association of Erie County present this important and timely seminar. Panelists include attorneys Thomas S. Wiswall, David L. Edmunds, Jr., Cheryl Smith Fisher, Ralph L. Halpern and Patricia L. Morgan.
