The Role of Lawyers in the Trump Era

Donald Trump’s unique approach to leadership, governance, and business has brought the legal profession to a significant crossroad.  This crossroad has forced lawyers to revisit and reorient themselves to fundamental principles of the profession.  Join our panelists as we discuss how these principles have been, or ought to be, stretched, rendered obsolete, or rather, remain unchanged in the Trump era.
