Our expert panel will explore the environment in which political staff work, and the ethical impact for the lawyers (both within and outside of government agencies) who interact with them, including:

  • What is the role of Ontario’s Integrity Commissioner?
  • In the political arena: political acuity as a core competency to achieve goals and objectives
  • Lessons learned from real-life examples of ethical predicaments - from confidentiality to who is your client
  • Avoiding legal conflicts of interest
  • Making sense of “whistle-blowing” rules if conduct crosses the line
