Representing minors presents a unique set of challenges and ethical considerations. Even more challenging issues arise when your minor client becomes an adult during the representation. If mom and dad hired you, and they are paying the freight, what can or should you share with them? If your minor client permits you to tell them anything, what if she later changes her mind? What if he tells you something that you know mom and dad don’t know that could have an impact on your client’s relationship with his parents? Join the Honorable Constance H. Frogale – who has seen it all – and the Honorable Kathleen M. Uston for an interactive discussion of the unique ethical dilemmas arising in the representation of minors and newly young adults.
