Nazi Crimes and Legal Ethics
|Wed, Mar 3, 5:00pm - 6:00pm
Join the Center for National Security and Human Rights Law for a discussion of the role of lawyers during the Nazi regime as the foundation for a review of the history of modern legal ethics, a summary of relevant requirements, and an analysis of how those requirements can help guide lawyers in today’s climate to help our society avoid the mistakes of history. This talk will examine questions such as: Does the legal profession need an ethical code to guide lawyers? Could the existence of an ethical code like the Model Rules of Professional Conduct have changed the course of the Nazi regime?
