ACC is a global association that aims to be an educational resource and networking platform for in-house counsel in corporations, associations and other organizations.
“Phillips Murrah is happy to sponsor the Oklahoma Chapter of the ACC and to partner with OK ACC in serving the business interests of our in-house counterparts,” Director Joshua L. Edwards said.
Gardner’s presentation is a refresher for a full spectrum of ethics issues in-house counsel manage on a daily basis.
“In my experience, continuing legal education for ethics is incredibly important because you are often on your own when making these decisions,” she said. “Plus, your relationships working with your clients on a day-to-day basis make some of the more difficult ethics calls more complicated than they would be if there was an arm’s length relationship.”
Gardner will cover Oklahoma’s Rules of Professional Conduct and address eight common ethics issues, exploring practical scenarios and ways to address each.
“Putting on programs like this allows us to support OK ACC’s mission of providing continuing education opportunities to its members,” Edwards said.
