DC Bar - CLE Course Explores Ethical Dilemmas Facing Attorney-Agents

January 14, 2009 • Washington, DC


Attorneys planning to venture outside the practice of law should sign up for the D.C. Bar Continuing Legal Education Program’s January 14 offering, “When Attorneys Act as Agents Representing Athletes and Performers: The Ethics of Playing in Two Arenas.”

Lawyers representing athletes and performers sometimes take the next step and become agents for their clients. However, because the D.C. Rules of Professional Conduct apply to attorneys in all contexts—whether or not acting as an attorney—the attorney-agent may be confronted with many challenging ethical dilemmas.

Faculty include Barry E. Cohen; Vernon E. Inge Jr. of LeClairRyan; Arthur McAfee, staff counsel with the National Football League Players Association; and sports attorney Ellen M. Zavian who will serve as moderator.

The course runs from 6 to 8:15 p.m. at the D.C. Bar Conference Center, 1250 H Street NW, B-1 level. It is cosponsored by the D.C. Bar Arts, Entertainment, Media and Sports Law Section; Courts, Lawyers and the Administration of Justice Section; Intellectual Property Law Section; Labor and Employment Law Section; and Law Practice Management Section.
