About the Teleseminar

Every attorney has a duty to practice ethically. Those attorneys that also supervise other attorneys or non-attorney legal professionals have additional supervisory obligations that may expose them to liability. This program will provide a framework for understanding the ethical obligations of attorneys supervising the legal work of others, whether attorneys or paralegals, common areas of liability and best supervisory practices for avoiding liability.
