Legal Profession Roundtable Program

The Legal Profession Roundtable Program includes both CLE-oriented Legal Malpractice and Professional Liability Roundtables and student-centered Leadership Roundtables in cooperation with Florida bar associations, federal and state courts, law firms, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Program highlights include two Legal Malpractice and Professional Liability Roundtables, the 2017 Lawyers in Leadership Award luncheon honoring Miami Law graduate Monica Vigues-Pitan, the new Executive Director of Legal Services of Greater Miami, the 2017 Hoeveler Award luncheon honoring Friends of the Everglades, represented by Vice President of Conservation Alan Farago, and several Leadership Roundtable lunches with leading members of the South Florida bar.

Legal Malpractice and Professional Liability Roundtables
"The Third Annual Legal Malpractice and Professional Liability Roundtable featured the best and brightest from our Florida law firms, including Colson Hicks Eidson, Kenny Nachwalter, Hill Ward Henderson, and Klein Glasser Park & Lowe," said CEPS Director Anthony Alfieri. "The panels addressed issues at the core of the attorney-client relationship – formation, scope of representation, withdrawal, and termination – and sparked lively debate among the more than forty participants. Because of the continuing importance of these issues to the Florida bar and bench, the Center for Ethics and Public Service will be convening Legal Profession Roundtables throughout the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year."
