AboutAbout This Course

This is a live, interactive seminar focusing on the effects of substance abuse on legal ethics as well as substantive abuse of legal ethics and/or professional discipline. How should the judiciary and the legal profession handle the inherent tension between their duties to protect the public and the administration of justice from conduct contrary to lawyers' ethical duties on the one hand and the tempering of such enforcement standards to accommodate medical and/or psychiatric views of addiction as medical conditions rather than moral or ethical misconduct?
