Is Good Health and Well-Being Our Ethical Obligation?
ATTENDANCE via WEBCAST
This presentation will explore whether well-being should be included in the definition of competence under Rule 1.1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct or whether it should be referenced solely in the Comments to the Rules.
Panelists examine the following questions:
• How should well-being be defined?
• Should the reference to well-being be exhortatory only?
• Would it contribute to a disciplinary infraction only in cases of actionable misconduct?
• Could it be a separate basis for a disciplinary infraction?
• Could lawyers potentially be punished for inherited physical or mental problems?
This video-encore CLE also addresses the responsibilities of partners, managers and supervisory attorneys and judges to put in place measures to ensure the well-being of its subordinate lawyers and judges.
