    Ethical issues present themselves in all aspects of an attorney's professional life. This ethics program is designed especially for in-house counsel and outside counsel advising their in-house clients. Our panel of experts will provide insight on a variety of important professional responsibility issues that affect in-house counsel and the challenges of implementing outside counsel advice on the "inside." This interactive session between in-house and outside counsel will focus on the complexities of this working relationship and best practices while earning ethics continuing learning education credits.

    Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

    Intermediate-level programs generally offer focused discussions regarding common legal issues pertaining to the program topic. Intermediate programs include legal updates and changes in the law. Speakers will assume the audience has a working knowledge of this specialty of health law, and there will be limited review of the fundamentals. This program is designed to provide a targeted, comprehensive analysis of the subject matter for those practicing law in this specialty for three to seven years and/or those whose practice is periodically focused in the covered subject area.
