Rudolph Giuliani, Kenneth Chesebro, Sidney Powell, L. Lin Wood, Kenneth Kubrowski and a number of other attorneys who sought to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election are now confronted with potential professional discipline for making false out of court statements.

Were such statements protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments? Are there exceptions to the constitutional rights of lawyers to make such statements even if false?

What are the implications of such efforts to discipline practicing lawyers for allegedly false or derogatory statements made publicly, on-line or in their offices? 

How does recently enacted Rule 8.4 (g) address these concerns? 

Join us as a distinguished panel of scholars and practitioners address these and related issues.


Indeed, their answers may be surprising!
