Please note that this event has been cancelled due to weather conditions and will be rescheduled.

We are seeking 2 hours ethics MCLE credits for this program. 

During this event, the Association of Corporate Counsel North Florida Chapter will also hold a brief annual meeting. The chapter will elect 2017 officers and directors and will cover other general chapter business.

The North Florida ACC and McGuireWoods LLP invite you and your colleagues to attend Tom Spahn’s annual ethics program. This two-hour interactive program uses hypotheticals to explore lawyers’ confidentiality and disclosure duties in the context of non-clients’ misunderstanding and mistakes.


  • Difference between ethics and professionalism
  • How to deal with unrepresented persons who may misunderstand a lawyer’s role
  • Negotiation ethics (including adversaries’ factual or legal misunderstanding, substantive mistakes or scrivener’s errors)
  • Litigators’ disclosure duties in the face of litigation adversaries’ or courts’ misunderstanding, mistakes, or scrivener’s errors
