Explore the unique ethical questions that frequently occur when representing community groups, particularly those that are not legally incorporated. The rules of professional conduct generally envision a lawyer's duties to an individual client within the bounds of a formal lawyer-client relationship. Community lawyering often deviates from this norm. This CLE will primarily address ethical questions that arise when representing community groups. (Two (2) NC CLE ethics credits)
