Advanced Ethical Issues for Class Action Practitioners [WEBCAST ONLY]

OBA Class Actions PROGRAM | 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)

Lawyers face ethical issues on a daily basis. Many are ones that are easy to navigate, however others can be tricky and require more thought and consideration. We will examine the more complex ethical issues that arise specifically for class action practitioners. By focusing on these unique issues, both those already practicing in this area of the law and those who intend to add class actions to their practice will benefit greatly from this discussion.

Join our highly experienced faculty as they tackle cutting-edge issues such as:

  • Ethical considerations arising from recent legislative amendments to class proceedings statutes
  • Ethical pitfalls for counsel representing plaintiffs, putative and certified classes
  • Ethical pitfalls for counsel representing defendants and managing communications with plaintiffs and class members
  • Potential conflicts of interest and best practices on how to avoid them
  • Novel issues raised by third party funding arrangements
  • Does the quasi-public nature of class actions require a more focused examination of equality, diversity and inclusion issues by class and defence counsel?
  • Should counsel factor in issues of equality, diversity and inclusion when determining who represents the class?
