Item Description Back to top
In this ethics course for bankruptcy lawyers, our instructors begin with a brief overview of the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board’s process for investigating complaints against attorneys. The panel then considers hypothetical problems based on real life cases. Specific topics include sanctions against a lawyer for relying too heavily on technology; disgorgement of excessive fees; and entitlement to fees in excess of the amount set forth in the original 2016(b) statement.
This course was recorded in September 2011 at PBI’s 16th Annual Bankruptcy Institute. Other sessions from this popular institute are available at PBI’s Online Campus.
