Ethics of Representing Community GroupsPresenter: Peter Gilbert, Community Inclusion Attorney Fellow, UNC Center for Civil Rights
Explore the unique ethical questions that frequently occur when representing community groups, particularly those that are not legally incorporated. The rules of professional conduct generally envision a lawyer's duties to an individual client within the bounds of a formal lawyer-client relationship. Community lawyering often deviates from this norm. This CLE will primarily address ethical questions that arise when representing community groups. (Two (2) NC CLE ethics credits)*
