Jenner & Block Partner Terri L. Mascherin will speak in the keynote plenary session at the ABA’s National Legal Malpractice Conference. She and other panelists will explore what civility in the profession means, what has changed and why, and how perceptions of the legal profession held by jurors, judges, and even other lawyers can affect lawyer liability, from whether a claim is brought to what happens to it once it’s asserted. This session will address relevant Model Rules of Professional Conduct, including Rules 1.3 (diligence), 3.1 (meritorious claims and contentions), 3.5 (impartiality and decorum of the tribunal), and 4.1 (truthfulness in statements to others).
This conference will be held in Nashville from September 22-24, 2021. Ms. Mascherin’s session will be held from 8:45 am- 9:45 am on September 23. To learn more and register, click here.
