Ethical Dilemmas in Representing Compomised Licensees: Understanding Your Risks Under the rules of Professional Conduct.

This panel will discuss ethical dilemmas under the Rules of Professional Conduct that practicing attorneys face when representing licensees in administrative proceedings where the licensee is afflicted by disease, drug abuse, age, mental illness or other disabling conditions that compromise or may compromise the ability of the licensee to engage in the regulated conduct within acceptable standards. Attendees will gain insight into the subtle and not-so-subtle dilemmas under the Rules that create real hazards for both the client being represented and the practicing attorney, as well as dilemmas related to the consumer protection issue that is the hallmark of every licensing action.
