You Can't Go Wrong! Ethics+Competence+Elimination of Bias

Presented by the Immigration Section and the Southern California Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association

Topics to be covered will include the proposed new rule on trust accounting, how to draft an effective fee agreement, the ethical boundaries of using asylum as a means of getting a client into court; and when/how you may run into ethical issues in the courtroom. We will make available various templates and sample agreements you may adapt to your practice.

Attorneys Carole Buckner and Joel Osman, leading ethics experts, will share their insights, knowledge and scholarship on legal ethics, and update us on significant ethics opinions decided in the past year. Attorney Mia Frances Yamamoto (formerly Michael F. Yamamoto), one of the most distinguished criminal defense attorneys in Southern California, will be an honored guest and speaker on the topic of Elimination of Bias. She will join us to discuss practical topics including transgender records, status and identity, and issues of discrimination.
