Ethics are the moral principles that guide people to act one way and not another. Attorneys make ethical decisions every day when deciding how to defend or represent a client, and attorneys working for large firms also must act ethically in their business practices. The codes of professional ethics guide an attorney's behaviour, but so do the attorney's personal standards. Large law firms sometimes select a non-lawyer to be their chief executive officer. This can pose ethical problems, because people who aren't lawyers can't give legal advice. Other employees, such as paralegals and secretaries, are also not permitted to offer legal advice, and law firms must carefully train staff to ensure they don't violate this rule. Law firms must ensure client confidentiality and prohibit misappropriation of client funds. Employees in some jurisdictions, for example, have to be aware that disbursements from insurance companies must go into an escrow account and not into a personal or business account. They must know rules and guidelines governing client confidentiality; they can't, for example, post information about clients on social networking sites or reveal details of a client's case to a third party -- even a client's family member -- without express permission from the client. How lawyers have to approach law firm management and organizational aspects to ensure compliance with ethical rules and match regulatory standards? This webinar session will focus on these and other issues involving law firm management from an ethical angle and perspective.
