Conflicts of interest can be difficult to identify and understand. Factor in the residual duty to former clients, and one can see how quickly and easily the list of possible conflicts of interest could become overwhelming. Unfortunately, the relevant rule on conflicts of interest, Rule 3-310, is somewhat general. It does not appear to provide much guidance in actually identifying a conflict of interest. This is partly because rule 3-310 is primarily enforced through civil litigation, typically through a motion for disqualification for pending litigation or a malpractice suit. To help practicing attorneys cope with the issue, this course provides a practical approach to dealing with potential conflicts of interest. Topics covered include:

  • Avoiding the representation of adverse interests
  • Issues that arise in representing joint clients
  • Former clients and the duty of loyalty
  • Avoiding conflicts when changing jobs
  • Disqualification
