CLE: 1.0
CLE: 1.0 Ethics

Objectives: The rules of ethics impose a number of continuing obligations to the client which last beyond the level of the initial trial or disposition of the case. Our continuing obligations to our clients may involve ethical issues affecting confidentiality, competency, conflicts and scope of representation. A fundamental part of basic competency at the trial level is an understanding of how the conduct of trial counsel may enhance or jeopardize the obligations to the client which will continue past the initial trial or disposition of the case. An indispensable part of this particular aspect of competency is an awareness of the importance of making and preserving a record at trial. Objectives will also include a review of recent developments on preservation of jury instruction issues.  We will review the ethical requirement to pursue defense instructions, the authority for the court to give certain instructions, and consequences of failing to make an appropriate request for instructions.
