Course Description

Length: 1h 1min    Published: 11/13/2018    
Representing bankruptcy clients often presents a number of ethical issues for the attorney/law firm. Not only must state ethics rules be considered, but the Bankruptcy Code imposes its own set of ethics rules to abide by. This program unravels the key ethical traps both consumer and business bankruptcy attorneys are likely to encounter. Topics include: conflicts and disinterestedness rules in the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and Bankruptcy Rules; specific conflicts and disinterestedness issues; and fee arrangements in consumer bankruptcy cases.
Learning Objectives
* Understand the unique set of ethical obligations that bankruptcy attorneys must adhere to
* Learn about conflicts of interest and disinterested rules and how they apply to bankruptcy attorneys
* Learn about fee arrangements for consumer bankruptcy cases

"Excellent presentation of ethics in Bankruptcy matters. Highly informative and the lecturer is more than qualified to present the issues. Recommend this course to anyone who may be or gets involved in Chapter 11 matters."
