    Don't Try This At Home: Why You Should Never Emulate TV Lawyers

    Lawyers on our favorite legal dramas - Boston Legal, The Practice, L.A. Law - often act in ways that would cause significant trouble for actual lawyers. In this multimedia presentation, legal humorist Sean Carter demonstrates some of the worst of TV lawyer behavior and explains how similar (although less severe) behavior sometimes creeps into the actual practice of law, decreasing a lawyer's ability to best serve his or her clients and uphold the ideals of the profession.

    Sue Unto Others As You Would Have Them Sue Unto You

    Increasingly, lawyer civility and congeniality is becoming a thing of the past. Yet, it doesn't have to be that way. In this humorous presentation, veteran attorney and legal humorist Sean Carter reminds you that zealous advocacy does not require you to be a zealot.

    • Least Competent
    • And much more

    Enough is Enough: Avoiding Vexatious Lawyering

    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.
