This annual ethics seminar co-sponsored by DSBA and the St. Thomas More Society of Delaware presents speakers and topics which touch on many of the very important issues which attorneys must understand.  Thomas More faced adversity and danger yet stood by the principles of his religion and the legal profession; this seminar seeks to help provide the tools to strengthen the legal profession and those who practice it.
