Professional Development Track - "I'm Shocked-Shocked!-to Find that Unethical Conduct Is Going On in Here!": A Tale of Ethics in Bankruptcy

Our play will address the ethical pitfalls faced by the attorneys in the chapter 11 bankruptcy of Casablanca Snow Globes, Inc., a once-thriving manufacturer of world-class snow globes that has fallen on hard times due to cheap foreign competition, changes in consumer taste
and unfair TSA regulations. Watch debtor's counsel struggle with whether she represents the debtor or its owner, as well as possible secret connections with the evil empire owned by Boris Badenough. Thrill to Boris's lawyer's problems with his various clients in this case, who are not always aligned (or sane). Our panel of experts will provide commentary on these critical issues, such as (a) who is your client; (b) what to do when clients don't tell the truth; (c) how to fulfill your obligations to be candid with the court; (d) how to avoid sharp lawyering practices; (e) best billing/fee application practices; and (f) conflicts of interest.
