December 10, 2007

Thomson University presents its annual CLE panel, “Hot Topics in Corporate Ethics and Professional Responsibility,” moderated by renowned legal scholar, author and Harvard Law School professor Arthur R. Miller. This is the second year that Briggs and Morgan shareholder Kari Berman has been invited to participate.

This discussion will cover the risks and rewards of maintaining professional responsibility in this post-Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) environment and the interplay of the rules of professional conduct, common law and federal law. It is overwhelmingly more complex to be a corporate officer today, than five years ago. Panelists will explore corporate governance and the increasingly high risk/high reward, ethically challenging world of corporate legal representation.
