Ethical Issues in Immigration Law

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 | 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Registration for this program is now closed. Please see the full listing for upcoming IPE programs.
This program will provide an overview of ethical issues often encountered in immigration practice and will use hypothetical problems to explore some of these ethical issues in depth. The primary goal will be to help participants recognize ethical problems when they first arise, so that they can analyze them and make constructive decisions. Another goal is to acquaint participants with rules of professional responsibility relevant to immigration law. Participants will be encouraged to take an active part in the discussion.

Ethical issues to be discussed include:

• representation of multiple clients in a single matter;
• credibility issues;
• notario fraud; and
• the duty to report misconduct of other lawyers.
