Seminar Brochure and Agenda
The Business Law Section of The Mississippi Bar and The Mississippi Corporate Counsel Association will sponsor the 2016 Business Law Ethics CLE Seminar titled " Your Duty to The Profession – An Opportunity and An Obligation." Adam Kilgore, General Counsel for The Mississippi Bar, will present this one (1) hour of Ethics credit CLE seminar at River Hills Club in Jackson on Tuesday, June 7, 2016. Lawyers play a vital role in the preservation of society. The fulfillment of this role requires an understanding by lawyers of their relationship to our legal system. A lawyer is a representative of clients, an officer of the legal system and a public citizen having special responsibility for the quality of justice. As such, a lawyer’s conduct should conform to the requirements of the law, both in professional service to clients and in the lawyer’s business and personal affairs. Every lawyer is responsible for observance of the Rules of Professional Conduct which include the duties of competence, maintaining communication with a client and preserving communication with a client concerning representation. This seminar will explore these issues as well as offer a practical discussion as to how lawyers can navigate the both the opportunities and obligations of the legal profession.
