From Watergate and Whitewater to allegations of Russian collusion and charges of campaign finance law violations, the United States Presidency has produced an inordinately rich, if not fascinating, body of attorney ethical jurisprudence. Please join us as TUJ Law Professor F. Frederic (Ric) Fouad lays out the historic parameters of what is happening in this area along with the latest developments, including under-reported aspects of these matters. The event will include what we hope will be a lively Q&A and U.S.-licensed attorneys can pick up 2 CLE ethics credits.

About CLE Credit

Temple Law School is an accredited provider of continuing legal education (CLE) in Pennsylvania. 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.
