Moderator: Morris (Sandy) Weinberg, Jr.,
Panelists: Prof. Lara Bazelon, Hon. Robert S. Brewer, Jr., John Keker, Alice Fisher, Prof. Ronald S. Sullivan, Jr., Hon. G. Zachary Terwilliger.
The panel will discuss a series of recent high profile ethics issues, including the repercussions experienced by Professor Sullivan as a result of his representation of Harvey Weinstein, the manner in which prosecutors obtain the testimony of cooperating witnesses through proffers from their lawyers and the resulting potential differences from their own testimony, the myriad of issues for pool counsel addressed by the recent New York City Bar ethics opinion, the Rule of Law and the administration of justice, several post-Mueller issues such as the dilemma of White House witnesses summoned before Congressional committees, and the DOJ essentially outsourcing investigations of companies to the firms representing them, turning private lawyers into prosecutors.
