Fellow Steve Weise, Proskauer Rose, and Stan Keller, Locke Lord, will describe the Statement and answer questions on the call.

The result of the Working Group on Legal Opinions (WGLO) and the Legal Opinions Committee of the American Bar Association's Business Law Section joint project is a Statement of Opinion Practices designed to update the Legal Opinion Principles (53 Bus. Law. 831 (1998)) and selected provisions of the Guidelines for the Preparation of Closing Opinions (57 Bus. Law. 875 (2002)).  In connection with preparation of the Statement, a more concise statement, called the Core Opinion Principles, that was drawn from the Statement, was also prepared.  It is designed for use through incorporation by reference in or as an attachment to an opinion letter by those who wish to do so.
