#MeToo: Ethical Implications of Supreme Court Model Rule Change on Discrimination


In this presentation Attorney Brian Faughan will talk about Ethics Issues for Lawyers in a #MeToo World. This course will be a discussion of The inherent limitations of the ethics rules, the failed effort at adopting an ethics rule on discrimination and harassment, and what is in the ethics rules.





The presenter did an excellent job on a timely and sensitive topic.

Fascinating insight into the politics of the ethical rules in Tennessee.

Very insightful discussion on both the uses and limitations of existing ethics rules.

Helpful update on rejection of proposed rule change

The presentation provided a solid background of the legal aspects of #metoo.

Really appreciate the self-awareness of the presenter. Would probably be good for TBA to diversity its presenters on topics like this.

A good review of potential future changes to the RPC in our new enlightened era, as well as a good review of ways the RPC already addresses these issues of harassment.

Interesting potential application of ethics rules.

Great guidance on our obligation to advise not just on the law, but using moral and ethical considerations as well.

A very interesting topic, courageously presented.

Excellent, excellent course. It provided as much or more insight to me than any course I have taken in many years.

Good discussion re: Attorney and Judge ethics.

I found the presentation more meaningful than expected, given the presenter's involvement in working on proposed rules within the state.


Interesting background on why proposed rule 8.4(g) failed.

Basically it reinforced how I practice law and give advice but also gave information on how divided the issue of equality still is when it comes to our beliefs.

Helpful and thought provoking.
