Ethical Issues Related to Risk: Understanding and Advising Clients

Fri 12/03/2021
10:15AM - 11:15AM
Presenter(s): Prof. Shawn S. Leisinger

This presentation will begin with an exercise allowing participants to evaluate how they and others approach risk taking differently.  Next, the group will discuss academic principles of risk as they related to the real-world exercise results, including heuristics, patterns, and other explanations why risk is approached differently.  The group will be examining ethical guides and rules for attorneys as they related to addressing personal and professional ethical obligations.  Other professionals will gain an understanding of these rules and how they may be obligated to work with or avoid some of the same with clients on risk matters in representation.
