The Future of Ethics for In-House Counsel: Going Boldly Where No Model Rules Has Gone Before

The jobs of in-house counsel have become more global and fluid, but ethics laws — on privilege, right to practice, and even technology — often still read like they come from dusty books left over from the 19th Century. Focusing, in part, on the recent work of the American Bar Association’s Ethics 20/20 Commission, this panel will discuss what in-house counsel need ethics rules to address, to allow them to practice law in ways that are as fluid, global and technologically savvy as their companies.

Panelists:

Ona Alston Dosunmu, General Counsel, The Brookings Institution; Chair of ACC Advocacy Committee and Member of ACC Board of Director
Wendy Patrick, Deputy District Attorney San Diego; Advisor California State Bar Ethics Commission
Judith Miller, Former General Counsel at Bechtel Group, Inc.; former Member of ABA 20/20 Commission
Evan Schultz, Senior Counsel and Director of Advocacy, Association of Corporate Counsel
