The Rules of Ethics apply to in-house counsel, but how they apply is not always as clear as it is for outside counsel. 

This program goes through the Ethical Rules, from the Introduction and Scope to Rule 8.4, including case law analysis, showing how the Rules apply to in-house counsel. General topics include competence, conflicts, compensation, supervision of other lawyers and staff, dealing with the court and with other third parties, pro bono work, and general misconduct. Particular attention is paid to Rules 1.0, 1.1, 1.2., 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, 3.3, 3.4, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 6.1, and 8.4.
