    Collapse LIVING LAW II Justice, the Good Life and Lawyer-Philosophers: Lessons in Law and Humanity

    Original Program: May 8, 2019

    Available formats

     

    This unique professionalism program, unlike any other legal seminar, probes the relationship between the law and human culture, primarily through a review of literature and enhanced through five basic sessions facilitated by course planners David Hostetler and Gray Wilson.

    Discussion groups analyze the works of authors ranging from Plato to Tolstoy in an interactive environment designed to extol but also challenge the essential principles and practices of the legal profession.

    Through the prism of the humanities, every lawyer reflects on the role of the profession beyond the mere rules, regulations, procedures and statutes that define and sometimes confine it.

    We would like to thank our Gold Sponsor, Lawyers Mutual, for helping make this program possible.

    Collapse Enough is Enough: Avoiding Vexatious Lawyering

    Friday, June 28, 2019, 11:00am-12:00pm

    Click here to register. 

    While lawyers are expected to provide their clients with zealous representation, we are not allowed to become outright zealots in pursuit of our client's objectives.

    Yet, time and again, this is precisely what happens as lawyers become fixated on winning at all costs. And as a result, they end up paying the ultimate price -- the loss of their license to practice law.

    In this sobering but surprisingly funny presentation, legal humorist Sean Carter distinguishes permissible zealous legal practices from unethical legal zealotry.

    Moreover, he provides helpful tips to overcome the temptation (and sometime, client expectation) to play "hardball" and to avoid those situations that are most likely to cause lawyers to cross ethical lines.

    In particular, we discuss:

    • Frivolous lawsuits
    • Prosecutorial misconduct
    • Threats
    • Retaliatory actions
    • Desperate tactics
    • Excess stubbornness

    Lawyers, liars, and lunatics! This webinar focuses on why some people (lunatics) think that lawyers have a problem with lying. We go to the top of our profession -- good ol' Honest Abe -- to see what he has to say about honesty in the legal profession.

    Do we have a problem with honesty? And if so, what can we do to fix it?

    In this webinar, we look at the various model rules requiring honest legal practices, such as 3.3, 4.1, 7.1 and 8.4, and then look at case examples where attorneys have been disciplined for dishonest activities.

    And of course, we end by vowing to not do likewise.

    In particularly, we discuss:

    • The call to honesty in the legal practice
    • The public's perspective of legal practice
    • Candor towards the tribunal
    • Honesty to disciplinary authorities
    • Truthfulness in attorney advertising
    • Costs of dishonesty

    Don't Be an Outlaw: The Ethycal Imperative to Follow the Law

    Lawyers must not only have a fundamental understanding of the law, but also, a fundamental commitment to abiding by it. And while the necessity to avoid committing major felonies is obvious to everyone, some lawyers forget about the necessity to follow the "little laws" as well. In this eye-opening webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter recounts the tales of past Ethy Award nominees (those who were recognized the best of the worst ethics violations). These lawyers learned, albeit too late, that if you do even a minor crime, you will do the disciplinary time.

    It's been said that nice guys finish last. And while that might be true in the rough and tumble arenas of politics, professional prize fighting and marriage, nothing could be further from the truth in the practice of law. Zealous representation doesn't require us to be zealots. In fact, the most effective representation requires just the opposite. Nice lawyers finish first ... and so do their clients!

    Loose Lips Sink Partnerships (and Clients Too): The Ethical Way to Honor Client Confidentiality

    One of the most sacrosanct duties for lawyers is the duty of confidentiality. A client has a right to trust that his or her lawyer will not improperly divulge information about the representation. This trust is one of the hallmarks of the client-lawyer relationship. In this surprisingly funny webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter explores the contours of the rules concerning lawyer confidentiality.

    If You Can't Say Something Nice, Shut Up!: The Ethycal Imperative for Civility

    As children, we were all taught, "If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all." Well, that advice holds especially true for lawyers. Whether in open court, a deposition, or contract negotiation, lawyers who choose to "go low," run a high risk of bar discipline. Increasingly, disciplinary authorities are treating the once aspirational goal of civility as a mandate. Therefore, it's important for all lawyers to be reminded of their obligation to "play nice."

    Don't Be an Outlaw: The Ethycal Imperative to Follow the Law

    Lawyers must not only have a fundamental understanding of the law, but also, a fundamental commitment to abiding by it. And while the necessity to avoid committing major felonies is obvious to everyone, some lawyers forget about the necessity to follow the "little laws" as well. In this eye-opening webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter recounts the tales of past Ethy Award nominees (those who were recognized the best of the worst ethics violations). These lawyers learned, albeit too late, that if you do even a minor crime, you will do the disciplinary time.

    Legal Ethics Is No Laughing Matter: What Lawyer Jokes Say About Our Ethical Foibles

    In this one-of-a-kind ethics presentation, Mr. Carter explores the topic of lawyer jokes, whether they have any basis in fact and what they say about our adherence to the rules of professional conduct. He does so through the use of video clips dramatizing these jokes. He also uses audience polling and questions from attendees to spread the "laughter."
