Ethical, Zealous Representation in Removal Proceedings AC18 (.MP3)
Issues in removal proceedings can present professional pitfalls. Panelists will discuss ethical red flags that may arise in removal cases, such as discovering a client has given false information that was then relayed to the court, disagreeing with a client about strategy, or the practitioner uncovering his or her own missed deadline or other mistake. To what degree are practitioners limited in requesting relief or arguing their position to the tribunal, and what prohibitions exist as to advising clients to take a certain course of action?
