Date: 30th November 2017

Law Society of Scotland (and live video streaming)
144 Morrison Street

This seminar will address the day to day ethical issues in-house counsel face, and provide a practical approach to spotting, avoiding, and dealing with them as you go.

We recently published the 'Who is your client? guide', which was developed following feedback from the profession and includes new guidelines to help in-house solicitors.

This seminar will address the day-to-day ethical issues in-house counsel face, and provide a practical approach to spotting, avoiding and dealing with them as you go. 

Presented by Russell Eadie, from our Professional Practice team, this event will focus on:

  • knowing your client
  • conflict of interest
  • legal privilege and confidentiality
  • balancing business and professional obligations

Russell will be presenting on and discussing real life scenarios that have been raised with Professional Practice and audience participation will be required.
