The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth: The Ethycal Imperative for Honesty in Law Practice

Dr. Martin Luther King once said, "A fact is the absence of contradiction, but the truth is the presence of coherence." As lawyers, we are duty bound to be more than just factual. Lawyers must tell the truth to clients, judges, and even opposing counsel and third parties. In this eye-opening webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter deals frankly with the very human inclination for dishonesty and explains how to avoid the traps from which dishonesty most often springs. In doing so, he draws upon current and past nominees from his annual Ethy Awards to show the consequences of dishonesty.

The Personal Contact Rule: No Draculas Allowed

The ethics canon treats the lawyer like Count Dracula. The lawyer must be invited to meet the fresh client on whom he "feeds." He cannot badger the weak and infirm. He must pay not even one pint of his fees to others to recommend him. He only has free license with his families of blood and friends, of others of his profession, and of those previously marked by him as his clients. And while such rules might have made sense in 19th century Transylvania, how do 21st century lawyers abide by them in an increasingly interconnected world of personal networks and social media?

And in the process, he reinforces the relevant legal ethics principles underlying such practices.

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!

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.
