California’s Rules now conform generally to the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct.
In a series of slides and hypotheticals, Justice Lambden and Judge McBride will describe how the new rules have changed your obligations.
Presented by Hon. James McBride (Ret.) and Hon. Charlotte Woolard (Ret.)
Effective November 2018, California adopted new Rules of Professional Conduct modeled on the American Bar Association’s Model Rules. This was the first major overhaul of the California’s Rules in 30 years. Although the new Rules are in many respects the same as the old Rules, there are significant changes. We will provide a general overview of the Rules and a more detailed look at what has changed. We will also look at significant new Ethics Opinions and explore common problems that may arise in your practice.
