Ensure Your Compliance with the New Rules of Professional Conduct

Thursday, September 15, 4:30-6:00, via Zoom

The New Rules of Professional Conduct go into effect October 1. Many of the  latest changes build on the SJC's commitment to civility. But there are other important changes regarding sexual relations and managerial responsibility.

According to Attorney Thomas Maffei. "It's clearly a statement by the court that the use of 'abusive' tactics, whether in court or outside of court, directed to any participant in the process, is on thin ice and could likely involve [loss of] your law license if you carry it to an extreme." Mass. Lawyers Weekly, July 25, 2022, p.29.


Attend and learn from Attorneys Thomas Maffei and Martha Bagley the following:

  • What the new rules require and prohibit in terms of civility

  • How the rules have changed regarding sexual relations with clients

  • What the rules say about abusive tactics

  • The new obligations for those with managerial authority
