NABL will present a teleconference, "Ethical Considerations of the MCDC Program for Bond Lawyers", on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, from 1:00-2:30pm Eastern. The teleconference will feature a panel of experienced practitioners discussing model rules relating to concurrent conflicts of interest, former client conflicts of interest and potential bond counsel liability.  The teleconference will also examine strategies and methods to minimize risk to the bond lawyer serving in one or more capacities as counsel to the primary parties involved in the MCDC program. The teleconference will cost $195 for members and $250 for non-members. CLE ethics credit will be available. For online registration and for more information click here. Registration closes Monday, December 15. Registrants will receive log-in instructions on Tuesday, December 16.


Over the next few weeks, leading up to the December 1 deadline, NABL members will be advising issuer and obligated person clients on self-reporting under the Municipal Continuing Disclosure Cooperation Initiative.  To assist its members in advising their clients, NABL has prepared a summary of views broadly held by practitioners on procedural aspects of self-reporting.  The summary, Viewpoints on Issuer Participation in MCDC, is available here.

Many of the aspects in the summary were discussed in NABL’s October 15 teleconference,  The Issuer's Deadline: Considerations and Ramifications of Self-Reporting .  The October 15 teleconference was the third in a series of NABL teleconferences on MCDC.  The first, an overview of MCDC, was held May 21.  The second,  MCDC – Should the Issuer Self-Report? , was held August 6. Recordings of the three  teleconferences and their associated materials are available here.
