FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Former U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Potter Stewart said that ethics is knowing the difference between what you have the right to do and what is right to do.
Paul Keith, current president of the Arkansas Bar Association and partner at Gibson and Keith in Monticello, Arkansas, will discuss ethics in agricultural law at the eighth annual Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental Law Conference, hosted by the National Agricultural Law Center on June 10-11, 2021.
“The Mid-South Conference is a great opportunity for registrants to get an in-depth look at the current state of ag and environmental law in the region,” Keith said. “I’m particularly excited to reflect on my past and current experiences and share some information on how lawyers can better serve their clients and comply with the Rules of Professional Conduct.”
Keith served as a special associate justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court. He has also been appointed to serve on the Legislative Task Force on Private Property Rights. In 2018, he was appointed to the Arkansas Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct.
“The National Agricultural Law Center is thankful to have Paul join us at the conference,” NALC Director Harrison Pittman said. “Ethics is an integral component of being an attorney in agriculture and food law. This session will provide attendees with the knowledge of an experienced attorney identifying potential ethical pitfalls they may face in practice.”
The conference is scheduled for June 10 – 11 with Keith speaking on Friday at 1 p.m. Central. Those interested can register and learn more about the conference and continuing education opportunities here: https://bit.ly/3uXXvlm.
