Lawyers as Targets: Suing, Prosecuting and Defending Lawyers

April 1, 2015 | 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Hofstra University Club
225 Hofstra University
Hempstead, NY 11549

Increasingly, lawyers are targets in both civil and criminal matters. In practice, lawyers tend to be more concerned about civil and criminal liability than disciplinary liability. This conference will examine the changing legal landscape related to litigation against lawyers.

In recognition of the late Professor Monroe Freedman, the conference will be dedicated in his honor and begin with a tribute from Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz.

Keynote Speaker:

Ronald E. Mallen
Partner, Hinshaw & Culberston LLP

“Ethical Regulations and Civil Liability: Do They Interrelate?”

Registration for this event is now closed. If you have any questions, please contact Judith Black at Judith.Black@hofstra.edu.
