This ethics refresher course is open to licensed and non-licensed attorneys and legal professionals who are working in law firms, corporations or other legal settings. The seminar is held in English.

Current hot topics will be covered including digital data protection, conflicts among multiple targets of government enforcement actions, attorney-client privilege issues for Japan in-house counsel including non-licensed practitioners, multi-jurisdiction practice concerns, and special vigilance with respect to parties with adverse interests who otherwise are seemingly—or traditionally—aligned, a situation often encountered in Japan.

About CLE Credit

Attorneys who need credit should bring their state attorney ID number so that they can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
