NOV 17, 2009 TRAINING WORKSHOP: ETHICS
November 17, 2009 – Legal Training: Ethical Considerations Collaboration Between Private Attorneys and Non-Profits. A Role Play in Three Acts. This course will explore the ethical considerations that arise when civil rights practitioners team up with non-profits and community organizations. See attached flyer for registration details.

Scholarship on Reentry
Forthcoming scholarship: McGregor Smyth, an NYCPR Advisory Board member and the Managing Attorney of the Civil Action Practice and Director of Reentry Net at the Bronx Defenders, has been awarded a writing grant. His article will outline a methodology for civil legal providers to identify, evaluate, and mitigate the collateral damage from criminal proceedings. The breadth of these collateral consequences is daunting, and they are often hidden from view, scattered across federal, state, and local statutes, regulations, and administrative policies and practices. The methodology will bridge traditional divides in civil legal work.
