The MSBA's New Lawyers Section Presents
"BIG E....little e: Ethics and the Young Lawyer"
From time to time in our daily practices, there are occasions when our own individual moral values and ethical constructs ("BIG E") are juxtaposed against our profession's "ethical" rules or Codes of Professional Responsibility ("little e"). This interactive and thought-provoking program is designed to examine a number of these situations in an effort to develop a critical manner of thinking about and analyzing what a lawyer "ought" to do in the face of a conflict between our individual ethical values and the norms imposed upon us by the applicable codes of conduct. Each of the scenarios/fact problems and video clips from movies and other forums presented are based on "real" situations encountered by "real" lawyers and are not the project of the over-imaginative mind of a law professor. These materials are designed to provide a framework for looking at the various provisions of "little e" – the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct in a much broader setting.
