What if Donald Sterling Were an Indiana Lawyer: Ethical Considerations of Bias and Discrimination in the Practice of Law
Continuing Legal Education
November 25, 2014 Tuesday 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Rule 8.4(g) prohibits discrimination by an attorney in a professional capacity. Recent opinions indicate that this prohibition extends beyond the courtroom and boardroom. Panelists will discuss the origins and purpose of Indiana Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4(g) and actions in various states enforcing rules prohibiting discrimination by lawyers and judges.
Panelists and attendees will participate in an engaging discussion of the role of supervisory lawyers and judges in preventing discrimination and action plans for junior attorneys confronted with gender or race discrimination, including how to make staffing decisions and create a positive culture to avoid bias and discrimination in the profession.
