No law student or lawyer sets out to become a disciplinary statistic. In today’s challenging legal services marketplace, many recently licensed lawyers are going solo, practicing in small firm settings or are joining alternative legal service providers such as legal process outsourcing companies.   The training provided by law schools may not sufficiently prepare soon-to-be lawyers for the ethical and related business challenges they will encounter, leaving them more vulnerable to disciplinary complaints once they begin practice. Experts in the field of professional responsibility law discuss twelve simple tips to help young lawyers steer clear of lawyer discipline and explain what to do if you find yourself on the receiving end of a complaint.
