On December 12, 2022, Kathleen M. Quinn was a speaker at NYU’s 41st Institute on State and Local Taxation for the New Ethical Challenges Arise As Life with the COVID-19 Pandemic Becomes the ‘New Normal‘ panel.
The panel focused on the following:
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic caused unexpected changes and disruptions to society during 2020 and 2021, including the legal and accounting professions. Now that 2022 is drawing to a close, attorneys and accountants must consider existing and newly enacted ethical obligations. Many state bar and CPA associations have published new guidance to help their members with their ethical duties as COVID-19 continues to plague us (unfortunate pun intended?). Certain actions by the New York State Bar Association, DC Bar Association, North Carolina Bar Association and the Michigan Bar Association were highlighted in this session.
