Join us during Homecoming and earn your ethics credit on Saturday, October 3, when Professor Mark D. Yochum will present "Sex with Clients:  Revisited". The lurid title is to attract lawyers' attention to the notion that the personal interest of the lawyer can create a conflict of interest, even when the personal relationship with a client is somewhat short of sex. We will discuss the genesis and effect of Pennsylvania's new rules of conduct concerning a lawyer's romance with a client.   

Cost is $25 for non-Duquesne Law Alumni Association members; DLAA members may attend for FREE.  Class begins at 10:00 a.m. in room 204 of the School of Law; registration begins at 9:30 a.m.  Complimentary continental breakfast is served at 9:00 a.m.

This course has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for no (0) hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit and one (1) hour of ethics, professionalism, or substance abuse CLE credit.
