Excellence, Integrity & the Ethical Rules (Live Webinar)

Take a new look at the ethics rules! Stop looking at the ABA Model Rules as a burdensome set of laws that must be complied with in order to avoid committing malpractice. Instead, think big! This presentation will look at the how the ABA Model Rules can be used as a tool and a source of motivation for establishing a successful practice and a strong personal brand. Topics addressed include:

  • The framework for the ethics rules – have you ever read the preamble?
  • 50 hours of pro bono?! – why and how to get involved in pro bono, even in intellectual property practices
  • Professionalism formalities – conflicts, engagement, and declining representation
  • Getting a return on your ethical investment


Presenter: MBHB Partner James McCarthy
