Personal Contact/Positional Conflicts”
Presented by Professor Mark Yochum

Personal Contact
The last broad restriction on solicitation of clients by lawyers is the restriction on personal contact. This session will explore the continuing viability of this rule in an era when limitations on lawyers’ commercial speech are tested for their efficacy in remediating a real harm. The personal contact rule has little historical validity and its value, if any, is shrouded in mythology.


Positional Conflicts:  Pro Bono Publico & Oaths
This part of the course will explore positional conflicts and the pitfalls of issue advocacy. May a lawyer argue position X for one client and, in an unrelated matter, argue legal position not-X? We will consider the force and effect of the oaths we take, what it means to act pro bono public, and the problematic maxim, “salus populi suprema lex.”

This course has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for zero (0) hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit and three (3) hours of ethics, professionalism or substance abuse credit. Cost is $90. For more information or to register, contact koehler@duq.edu or 412-396-6282.
