          This responds to your inquiry (11-83) asking whether you may give an ethics presentation at a prosecutors’ training session. This is ethically permissible as long as you exercise caution to avoid the perception that you are providing advice on litigation strategy or tactics.

         Enclosed, for your convenience, are Opinions 09-62; 08-49; 07-37; and Joint Opinion 03-84/03-89 which address this issue.


Very truly yours,
