Event Description


August 22nd- Personnel- Integrity in Public Service: Laws & Codes of Conduct

Speaker: Alan Bojorquez  Moderator: Robin Cross

What do the Golden Rule, the Girl Scouts, Robert Fulgram and the ABA’s Model Penal Code for Lawyers have in common? That’s right – you!  Some rules are mandatory, others are merely aspirational.  Certain laws restrict behavior, while others just require submission of standardized forms.  All are meant to curb corruption and instill confidence in the minds of the citizenry.  Lawyers whose client is the public should remain mindful not just of the requirements and procedures, but also the spirit of good governance and the broad unwritten ethical responsibilities that come with that practice…..

Speaker: Alan Bojorquez  Moderator: Robin Cross
