This Lunch and Learn series is for YOU If you are interested in learning about:

  • How the regulation of Pennsylvania attorneys works
  • Defending attorneys before the Disciplinary Board
  • Serving as a Hearing Committee Member
  • Learning how the Rules of Professional Conduct are promulgated, administered and enforced in Pennsylvania

Plus, you will earn an enjoyable and convenient ethics credit! 

Join Ellen C. Brotman and Amy J. Coco, two experienced ethics attorneys, as they discuss the attorney disciplinary process in Pennsylvania and review local and national developments in professional responsibility and ethics.

Each month, Ms. Brotman and Ms. Coco will host a different “mystery” guest highlighting a different aspect of the disciplinary system, from initial complaint to reinstatement, from private discipline to retirement to administrative suspensions, through the three intersecting sets of rules and administrative regulations that govern the practice  of law in Pennsylvania. 

Coming July 12: Meet Jana Palko, Disciplinary Counsel-in-Charge, Office of Disciplinary Counsel, Pittsburgh.

On August 9, Ellen and Amy review the cases shaping the disciplinary process.

Each “hot takes” webcast will focus on the Disciplinary Board, the IOLTA Board, the CLE Board, and the Board of Law Examiners and also recent attorney discipline cases, rule changes, bar opinions, and other ethics and professional responsibility developments.  The discussions will be informative, educational and interactive as Ms. Coco and Ms. Brotman discuss the ins and outs of defending attorneys and how the system’s structure, precedent and policies influence their strategic choices.
