The Rules of Profession Conduct contain specific rules that govern the relationship of the attorney with the client. These rules are not necessarily intuitive, and it is the violation of these rules that commonly lead to client complaints against the attorney. Knowledge of the rules will improve client relationship, which improves the quality of the services provided by the attorney to the client.

This course will provide a general overview of the common rules that apply in every day practice and how they apply.

Key course points are:
• Improved Client Relationship.
• Improved Quality of the Services Provided by the Attorney.
• Understanding of the General Responsibilities Created by the Relationship.
• Understanding Confidentiality and its full Application.
• Issues with representing organizations.
