  • Issues raised by Proposed Disciplinary Rule 8.4
  • Problems (and solutions to the problems) that lawyers encounter with judges, both during motions practice and during trial
  • Problems (and solutions to the problems) that judges encounter with lawyers, including their duty to recuse and duty to disclose
  • Issues involving specialty appointments both of judges and lawyers (e.g., is there a code of conduct for mediators, special masters)
  • Common inquiries by and about judges
  • Optics that cause the most concern to lawyers and judges
