Time: 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
Session Format: Live Webinar
CLE Credit Available:  Yes

In most states, AHLA webinars meet the requirements for continuing legal education and attorneys may self-apply for CLE credit. AHLA’s live distance learning webinars are pre-approved for CLE credit in the following states: Alabama, Illinois, Nebraska, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. Please refer to Distance Learning CLE reporting procedure for more information.

This webinar brings together individuals who, by the nature of their work or their role, interact frequently with lawyers in a variety of health care settings, including business colleagues, compliance officers, auditor/consultants, government affairs, etc. Lawyers must be aware of the many legal ethics issues that can arise during these types of interactions. The speakers will discuss the application of the ABA model rules to possible situations, including when discussions are and aren’t privileged and the attorney’s responsibility to represent the client. The presentation will also highlight best practices and important considerations in these interactions, such as where can lawyers add value, and common needs and complaints when working with the legal department or outside counsel.

The “Listen with a Colleague" option allows multiple registrants from the same organization and location to participate in the webinar at a discounted rate. It may ONLY be used if at least one person from your organization and location has registered at the regular/full webinar registration rate. Please note that those who register under the reduced “Listen with a Colleague" rate must access the webinar from the same location and computer as the full-priced registrant they are registered under.

The “Listen with a Colleague" option is continuing legal education (CLE) credit-eligible. In order to obtain a certificate of completion for submission to a state CLE accrediting body, those registered under this option must obtain the attendance verification code—which will be displayed at a random time during the webinar—and enter that code under “Verification Code for Live Webinar" section of the webinar description webpage. Please note that each registrant must submit a complete evaluation from their individual accounts to obtain a certificate of completion.
