Most legal ethics programs focus on how applicable rules, laws, and related opinions govern a lawyer´s behavior when he or she is practicing law. But what rules apply to a lawyer´s behavior off the clock? The answer is: ethically, a lawyer is never off the clock. This program will focus on the rules, statutes, case law, principles, and guidelines that govern a lawyer’s actions, conduct, and speech, during personal time. It will break down and analyze Professional Rule of Conduct 8.4, Misconduct, breaking down each subsection into informative, practical examples, and present practical illustrations and informative case examples from around the country of how off the clock behavior can have on the job consequences.
