Nearly a decade ago, the ABA amended the Model Rules of Professional Conduct to address concerns regarding sexual harassment and discrimination in the practice of law. Both before the adoption and since, there has been fierce debate regarding the scope of Model Rule 8.4(g) and whether it sweeps too broadly to encompass, not just forbidden conduct, but also protected speech. State across the country have undertaken a variety of approaches to the issue and litigation on the rules adopted has been ongoing. 

This program will discuss the rule, the applicable law regulating lawyer speech, and the law regarding this particular rule.
