Topic: Ethics for Paralegals
Join us for a session on the principles for ethics and conduct to which every paralegal should aspire. The presentation will discuss a paralegal's ethical obligations in relation to the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct. While the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct do not directly regulate paralegals, the application of the rules can implicate paralegal conduct. During the presentation we will discuss different scenarios and past attorney discipline cases that involved paralegal conduct.
