Topic: Hot Topics in Ethics of Court Reporting Services, What you need to know
NCRA has established a code of ethics directed towards court reporters governing conduct between the public, the bench, and the bar so that they know what to expect from an NCRA member. The code provides ethical guidelines for all aspects of court reporting. The code of Professional Ethics (COPE) is mandatory for all NCRA members and advertisers. During this one-and-a-half-hour presentation, we will review several Advisory Opinions in the NCRA COPE and discuss proper implementation of the opinions in the legal workplace.
