    There are thousands of lawyer jokes told each day.

    Lawyer bashing is quickly becoming America's favorite pastime.

    But why?

    Is it because the typical layperson is jealous of our intellects, incomes and good looks?

    Sean Carter, Humorist at Law, suggests that while this may be true in his case, there may be other factors at work as well.

    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."

    All registrations are taken through our partner Mesa CLE. The NCBAF CLE department will faciliatate the attendance reporting with the NC State Bar.

    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.
