Web Program on Judicial Sanctions for Attorney Misconduct, and Qualcomm, on Friday Mar. 28

Posted by Alan Childress
We received this program announcement from the Washington Legal Foundation, and are happy to pass it along.  A PDF of the invitation is here, and this is the announcement:

The legal system, and the litigation that arises within it, are by their very nature adversarial.  But state and federal procedural rules, ethics codes, and judges’ inherent powers have been created to ensure that this adversarial process occurs in a civil manner.  Recently, through a significant number of high-profile rulings and other actions, judges and other regulatory authorities have imposed severe sanctions on lawyers for misconduct during pre-trial discovery, during trial, and for conduct related to specific litigation.  On Friday, March 28 at 10:00 a.m. EST, Washington Legal Foundation will be hosting a live Web Seminar program examining this recent rise in judicial sanctions against lawyer misconduct and providing guidance on how lawyers and litigants can navigate the ethical rules and keep out of trouble.  Our speakers will be legal ethics professor Michael I. Krauss of George Mason University School of Law and civil litigator Damon D.W. Wright a partner at the Venable LLP law firm.

Please join us at 10:00 a.m. this Friday at www.wlf.org.  We encourage your questions, emailed during the program to interactive@wlf.org.
