About This Course
This seminar presents lecture materials to guide participants on an interactive intellectual journey into the evolution of modern standards of ethics governing sexual conduct by lawyers, sexual relations between lawyers and clients or former clients and also gender issues. A fortiori, this seminar includes sexually-explicit information. Thus far, there is no nationwide, one size-fits-all standard. Some states have adopted the ABA Model Rule 1.8(j), some have modified it in a variety of ways, some have adopted broader rules, and some thus far have not adopted any Rule pertaining particularly or exclusively to such issues. What will ultimately evolve as the most widely applicable standards is not yet knowable but the policy issues warrant serious, interactive discussions and analyses, as will be the case in this seminar.
