In this unique legal ethics seminar, Sean goes beyond the "dos" and "don'ts" of the Rules of Professional Conduct to get to the heart of the matter -- the common mindsets that result in ethical violations in the first place.

Furthermore, he provides tips and insights on how to heal ourselves from these mindsets so that the ethical canons become guide posts and not obstacles in our drive to become successful lawyers.

He covers the Seven Deadly Sins of legal ethics:

  1. Lust (conflicts of interest -- Rules 1.7-1.9)
  2. Gluttony (over-commitment -- Rule 1.3)
  3. Greed (trust account violations -- Rules 1.5 & 1.15)
  4. Sloth (lack of diligence -- Rules 1.1 & 1.3)
  5. Wrath (incivility -- Rules 3.4, 3.5, 4.4 & 8.4)
  6. Envy (incompetence -- Rule 1.1)
  7. Pride (breaches of confidentiality, failure to communicate -- Rules 1.4 & 1.6)

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