Ethical Considerations for Removal Defense Practitioners

Dec. 13, 2023 | 1-2:30 p.m. ET | CA MCLE: 1.5 (Legal Ethics)

Recent procedural and substantive legal developments have significantly altered modern practice before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). As practitioners navigate increased demand for removal defense services along with significant changes in case flow processing, limited appearances, electronic records management, virtual hearings, and rapidly evolving legal precedent, we encourage you to join us as we analyze the implications of common practice scenarios on our ethical duties.  

Webinar topics will include:  

  • Representative-client relationship and scope of the relationship;
  • Conflicts of interest;
  • Competency;
  • Mandatory and permissive withdrawal;
  • Duty of candor to the tribunal;
  • Diligence; and
  • Communication.

The webinar recording will not be provided so be sure to join us live.
