On November 21 the D.C. Bar Continuing Legal Education Program will offer the course “Ethics and Lawyer Trust Accounts” to provide lawyers and firm trust account administrators with the practical information they need to comply with the governing rules on trust accounts.
Attendees will learn how to establish and maintain a lawyer trust account properly; what, when, where, and how to deposit; the duty to account; and how trust accounts are controlled.
Ethical obligations under the D.C. Rules of Professional Conduct, including a new legal ethics opinion on the disposition of trust account funds of missing clients; the duty to keep tangible property safe; IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts) requirements; and the consequences of improper management also will be discussed.
Dolores Dorsainvil, a senior staff attorney at the D.C. Office of Bar Counsel, and Daniel M. Mills, assistant director of the D.C. Bar Practice Management Advisory Service, will serve as faculty.
The course, cosponsored by all sections of the Bar, takes place from 6 to 9:15 p.m. at the D.C. Bar Conference Center, 1101 K Street NW, first floor.
