Everything You Need To Know About Trust Accounting

Managing client funds is a basic component of maintaining a law practice. However, statistics show that year after year, mishandling a client’s money is among the most frequent sources of investigation and disciplinary action by the ARDC. For lawyers who want to stay out of trouble, the first line of defense is to understand the provisions of Illinois’ safekeeping of property rule (Rule 1.15) and the record-keeping required by the rule. This seminar will provide a detailed explanation of the key principles in the rule (including relevant past revisions) and the requirements regarding IOLTA and unidentified funds. The program will also look at how to use basic accounting techniques to manage a client trust account and comply with the record-keeping requirements of Rule 1.15.
