This course provides the practicing attorney with a guide to the ethics issues surrounding the termination of a representa­tion before the conclusion of a matter. It addresses situations where a lawyer must withdraw and where a lawyer may withdraw. You will learn the steps you should take to withdraw from a client matter, including issues relating to permission from courts or tribunals, notice to clients, deadlines, and con­fidentiality. The class also covers obligations that ripen upon withdrawal, including how to handle client files and funds.
