In a recently released transcript, Rudy Giuliani told federal agents it was permissible to “throw a fake” during an electoral campaign. Just weeks before that transcript became public, Giuliani was suspended from the practice of law in New York for baselessly asserting that thousands of felons and dead people voted during the 2020 presidential election and that Georgia voting machines had been manipulated. In the months that followed, several of Trump’s top lawyers—including John Eastman, Jeffrey Clark, and Sidney Powell—have faced disciplinary sanctions for their role in contesting the results of the 2020 election. 

This program will examine the ethics rules implicated by Giuliani, Eastman, Clark, and Powell’s recent conduct—ABA Rules 1.2, 3.3, 4.1, and 8.4—and provide guidance on how to stay compliant.
