The overwhelming majority of in-house compliance officers are licensed attorneys. Some of these attorneys serve as both in-house counsel and compliance officers, while others perform only a compliance role. Regardless of the role, attorneys working in compliance must be aware of the legal ethics issues that might arise in their work.

Learning Objectives:
• Identify legal ethics issues faced by attorneys who work as in-house compliance officers.
• Understand how the applicable rules of professional conduct, statutes, and court decisions apply to the legal ethics issues faced by attorneys who work as in-house compliance officers.

Paul McGreal, J.D., joined Creighton University School of Law on July 1, 2015, as dean, and served in the posi-tion through July 31, 2017. Professor McGreal’s areas of expertise include corporate compliance, business ethics, law and economics, constitutional law, religion and the law, and First Amendment rights. He is the author of more than 50 articles, book chapters, and essays for publications at such institutions as the University of Notre Dame, Northwestern University, and the University of Pennsylvania. He earned a Master of Laws degree from Yale Law School, a J.D. from the Dedman School of Law and a B.A. in economics from Williams College.
