This online CLE, provided by Jenkins Law Library and hosted by Wong Fleming Associate Kat McKay, was presented live on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, from 10:00am to 11:00am EST. Future dates will be provided by Jenkins Law Library for additional opportunities to attend the CLE and earn credit. This course has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 1.0 hour of CLE credit in ethics and by the Board of Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New Jersey for 1.0 hour of total CLE credit in ethics/professionalism.
“The Legal Ethics of ‘Location, Location, Location’” will discuss Pennsylvania and New Jersey rules with regard to performing consulting work as a non-admitted attorney-consultant across state lines (e.g., when various offices of the same firm provide overflow work to other offices). It also addresses rules related to starting a firm with a virtual office or a trade name. Finally, it covers the importance of research to the accurate and ethical practice of law.
- “Materials very helpful”

- “Instructor is excellent (I remember from last year, very nice, informative and bubbly personality. I like the way she delivers the information.)”
- “Another CLE that was definitely worth the time. I learned some new things and reinforced some of the information from last CLE.”
- “Thanks again for an excellent CLE today.”
- Jenkins CLE organizer and librarian Dan Giancaterino stated regarding the comments: “please note that I don’t specifically ask for comments, so these were all volunteered, which makes them all the more special.”
