The University of Tennessee College of Law will host a 2016 Attorney Ethics Update and Quiz CLE program for Atlanta attorneys that will cover a variety of common ethical issues, including conflicts of interest, confidentiality, and advertising.

The program will be held Thursday, March 10, at the offices of Greenberg Traurig, Terminus 200, 333 Piedmont NE, Suite 2500, Atlanta. The program will last from 4 to 5 p.m., followed by an hour-long reception.

In this interactive CLE program, participants will consider professional conduct dilemmas based on real cases and recent news stories. The audience will identify which professional conduct rules may have been violated by the attorney’s conduct and vote on the best answer. The presenters and participants will then examine the results, discuss the possible answers, and consider how these issues should be addressed in practice. Alex Long, associate dean for academic affairs and professor of law, and Paula Schaefer, associate professor of law, will lead the program.

The cost for this program is $25, and attendees may receive one hour of DUAL credit in Tennessee and one hour of ethics credit in Georgia. Those interested in this program may register online at volsconnect.com/2016ATLCLE. For more information, contact Erica Clark at 865-974-2502 or erclark@utk.edu.
