Lawyers have the professional obligation to honour the rules of ethics and civility. However there is a fine line between advocating zealously for your client and possibly violating these rules. Do you know where to draw the line? How can you advocate for your client without overstepping this line? This is a quagmire that all lawyers face, so join us to learn how to uphold the rules of civility and still ensure that your client's interest comes first.
