Continuing Legal Education and Programming

As a service to its alumni and friends, the College of Law is happy to provide CLE opportunities throughout the academic year. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to use the facility and reconnect. Because programming develops throughout the course of the school year, registration is exclusively online. We encourage interested individuals to check this website routinely as programs are continuously added.

Tuesday, 2019, December 3 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
The Model Rules - A Handbook for Modern Lawyers
2.00 Professional Responsibility Hours

Speaker(s): Professor Richard Dooling and Professor Kristen Blankley

Nebraska College of Law - Auditorium

This CLE will present two lectures.  The first, by Professor Richard Dooling, will teach lawyers how to use the Model Rules of Professional Conduct as a handbook of good lawyering. A lawyer with a possible conflict of interest should begin by consulting Model Rule 1.8, formerly known as the "prohibited transactions" rule, because most of the recurring pernicious conflicts are gathered here. The presentation will examine each of the ten prohibited transactions set forth under Model Rule 1.8.

Following that, Professor Kristen Blankley will discuss recent eithics opinions from Nebraska and the ABA. The presentation covers new and emerging ethical issues, including lawyer's social media presence, blogging, and soliciting clients online.
