From the D.C. Bar web page:
The D.C. Bar Continuing Legal Education Program will teach daily practice and risk–prevention techniques with the course “Avoiding Malpractice and Bar Complaints” on October 24.
This class will provide experienced attorneys with practical new ideas to implement and, for newer attorneys, the skills they can use throughout their legal careers.
From choosing clients and cases to avoiding conflicts, communicating effectively, and handling client funds properly, faculty members will provide examples and practical advice to help attorneys focus on problem areas that so often lead to complaints. The major differences in relevant ethics rules in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia also will be discussed.
Julia L. Porter, senior assistant Bar Counsel, and Dennis J. Quinn, a member of Carr Maloney PC, will serve as faculty for the course, which takes place from 6 to 9:15 p.m. and is cosponsored by all D.C. Bar sections. It will be held at the D.C. Bar Conference Center, 1101 K Street NW, first floor.

Sounds like a worthwhile course. (Mike Frisch)
