ETHICS UPDATE: Everything Old is New Again

December MCLE: The new Rules of Professional Conduct went into November 1, 2018. The old rules have been entirely replaced and renumbered consistent with the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct.  This presentation will highlight some of the changes that will impact everyday practice.  California lawyers can locate a complete set of the new rules on the State Bar website.
