It will also cover ethical duties of supervising other attorneys in carrying out the commands of executives (both government and private) placed in superior positions to them. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association on August 21, 2015.
