Looking Back at the May MCLE Luncheon

Our previous MCLE lunchtime program was on Thursday, May 9, 2019, at 12:00 pm at the Manhattan of La Jolla restaurant (7766 Fay Avenue –  within the Empress Hotel).   

We were very pleased to have ethics attorney DAVID CAMERON CARR as our speaker for the May lunch meeting. Mr. Carr presented “NEW RULES ON COMPETENCE AND COMMUNICATION,” addressing how the rules governing attorney competence, diligence and communication have changed with adoption of the new Rules of Professional Conduct; how the Rules are different from the ABA Model Rules; and how the State Bar analyzes competence issues from a discipline standpoint, including application of the “moral turpitude” doctrine to grossly negligent breaches of duty.  Read more about this past event.
