Real-World Ethical Problems in Sole and Small Practices, Wed, Nov 22, 2017, 5-7:00 p.m.

TLA Lawyers Lounge, 2nd Floor, 361 University Avenue Court House

Are you doing it all on your own? Feel like you are "practicing in isolation"?

Discussing professional issues with a colleague is almost always impossible because the opportunity, very often, is simply not there. Real World Ethical Problems is a seminar especially for sole practitioners and members of small practices, where they can hear about the dilemmas colleagues have faced, how they have dealt with various situations, and what advice LSUC would have offered in the circumstances.

Panel members will be discussing real world ethical issues which have arisen in a variety of areas of law, such as,

  • How to deal with conflicts of interest that arise when acting for more than one party in estates and property matters
  • What to do when a client is not forthcoming about a material issue in litigation

Attendees will come away with a greater insight into ethical issues in their practices and most importantly, what resources are available to them.

Our panelists include: Shelina Ali, Iler Campbell LLP; Caterina Galati, Senior Compliance Counsel, Law Society of Upper Canada; Jane Martin, Dickson Appell LLP; Elinor Shinehoft, Elinor Shinehoft Barrister & Solicitor; Glenn Stuart, StuartLaw and our moderator will be Corinne Muccilli, Baker & Company.

This Nutshell has been approved for 85 minutes of Professionalism Content and 20 minutes of Substantive Content.

This tailored approach to meeting and exceeding our members' needs is really what a TLA Nutshell is all about. Nutshells run in the evening, generally last a couple of hours, and offer CPD credits in a collegial, informal atmosphere. Our seminars are designed, written and presented by professionals from the Toronto legal community. Be sure to join us for great conversation, while getting your questions answered.
