12:50pm – 2:00pm – Discussion
Stanford Law School, Room 180
Lunch will be provided.
The current volatile social and political climate presents many novel legal and ethical challenges. Surprisingly, many of the most high profile controversies stem from the Trump administration and its lawyers themselves. The issue of Michael Cohen’s payments to Stormy Daniels is only the most recent in a line of highly questionable ethical choices by the president, his administration, and their lawyers. Why should we care about these ethics questions in this political climate? What can be done both to address the issue now and to create a stronger ethical institutional structure for the future?
The Center on the Legal Profession is pleased to welcome Professor Richard Painter, former chief ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush, for a discussion of ethical lawyering in the age of Trump with our own Professors Deborah Rhode and David Sklansky.
