Professional Responsibility for the Animal Lawyer


The legal system poses many challenges and dilemmas for attorneys to navigate, and animal law issues can bring unique variations that are often not considered in usual discussions. Join us for a special CLE event, as Russ Mead leads attendees through a hypothetical scenario detailing what to do, what not to do, and what to look out for as an animal lawyer. The Model Code of Professional Responsibility will be used. Following the ethics presentation, Animal Legal Defense Fund Pro Bono Manager Taylor Waters will discuss how to get involved with our pro bono network, types of work that volunteer attorneys perform, and the benefits of membership. English closed caption subtitles will be available.

This webinar has been approved for 1 hour of ethics credit by the Oregon State Bar Association. A certificate of attendance will be provided via email after the webinar. Most states accept credits from other mandatory CLE states such as Oregon, but please check with your local bar association to confirm your state’s reciprocity and reporting rules.
