Nice Lawyers Finish First

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!

Thou Shalt Not Lie, Cheat and Steal: The Ten Commandments of Legal Ethics

Sean Carter sets out to prove that legal ethics isn't an oxymoron by delivering an off-beat "sermon" on the Ten Commandments of Avoiding Ethical Problems as a Lawyer. And by the end, he'll have you shouting Hallelujah, yelling Amen and hopefully, passing around a collection plate.

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."
