S2E17 | The Future of Legal Ethics by The Podvocate published on 2020-02-25T16:17:03Z This week, Jim is speaking with Brian Faughnan, an attorney specializing in professional responsibility and legal ethics. Their conversation has two parts: first, how proposed changes to the Rules of Professional Conduct could increase affordable access to justice, and second, the implications of the RPC on recent goings-on in the U.S. Department of Justice. Brian Faughnan serves as Associate General Counsel for Lewis Thomason, working with the firm’s president on all ethics and professional responsibility matters within the firm, and is a shareholder in the firm’s Memphis office. He has served as the Chair of the Tennessee Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility since 2009, is the Secretary of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers, and is a co-author of the book “Professional Responsibility in Litigation”, published by the ABA. Some of his writings on legal ethics may be found at faughnanonethics.com.
