In recent years, the news has highlighted ethics issues relating to conflicts of interest, confidentiality, the use of social media, supervision of non‑lawyers, and other topics.  This panel uses factual scenarios to discuss the requirements and lessons of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, including Rules 1.6, 1.7, 5.3, and 7.1 and to consider practical ways to identify and avoid ethical pitfalls. Some scenarios are ripped from current headlines; others are conceptualizations of problems worth avoiding.
