1:00 – 4:00 pm Legal Ethics in Education
Marriott at Key Center, Cleveland, Ohio
This seminar is a pre-conference for the ELA Annual Conference but may be attended separately from the full conference!
The session focuses on ethical issues related to law & education broadly, across PK - 20 settings (K12 and higher education). Attendees will be able to earn CLE credits for the ABA (and specifically the Ohio state bar requirements outlined below) professional conduct requirement. The presenters will focus on professionalism, civility, interacting with self-represented litigants and encouraging pro-bono representation for attorneys while also reviewing several ABA rules and how the rules apply. Finally, during this session, the presenters will address the professional conduct requirements related to interactions with universities, school boards, employees, students and parents.
