All the President’s Men and Women: Ethical Implications of the Trump Legal Team’s Election Challenge Strategies

F. Frederic (Ric) Fouad, Attorney; Adjunct Professor of Law, Temple University, Japan Campus

From seemingly mercurial DOJ decisions to unsuccessful election lawsuits, the Trump era especially has been shaped by lawyer conduct and — some say — misconduct. TUJ Law adjunct professor F. Frederic (Ric) Fouad will walk us through key moments in asking what, if any, professional exposure the President’s inner circle lawyers face. Our online CLE will look at these issues and suggest where things may lead. Those interested in legal ethics, attorney professional liability, and the intersection of lawyering and politics should find the evening informative and engaging, including Q&A. 1.5 CLE ethics credits.

F. Frederic (Ric) Fouad teaches Professional Responsibility as an adjunct professor at Temple Law (Tokyo Campus) and Fordham Law (New York). In addition to teaching law since 2008, Ric’s practice spans 31 years and combines Japan-focused commercial matters with extensive pro bono work. Ric began his career at Jones Day and has also served in-house at Taisei Corporation, Lexington Corporation, and Spartus Capital Management. Ric received his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, his J.D. from New York University, and was a 2009-2010 Harvard Law School Visiting Scholar. Ric divides his time between Tokyo and New York.

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 an attendance verification letter.

Our CLE lectures are held in English and open to anyone interested in the topics. You do not need to seek CLE credit to attend the lectures.
