When it comes to ethics violations, there is no such thing as a minor or "technical" foul.

All ethics violations are serious matters, evidencing a breach of the trust that has been placed in the lawyer.

As a result, lawyers must avoid falling into the mindset that a particular violation is "no big deal."

To make this case, noted legal humorist Sean Carter chronicles a number of recent ethics cases in which lawyers were surprised to discover that even minor ethics violations can have major consequences.

Sean review cases where lawyers received surprisingly significant sanctions for such transgressions as:

  • Failing to pay vendors
  • Omissions on customs forms
  • Unauthorized use of Westlaw accounts
  • Using another's home address
  • Falsifying MCLE compliance
  • Petty crimes
  • And much more

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