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."

The Ties That Bind: Avoiding Inappropriate Entanglements in the Practice of Law

To be an effective advocate, a lawyer must maintain a fair degree of dispassionate objectivity. The lawyer who becomes personally involved in the representation does the client a disservice. This is even more true for the lawyer who becomes personally involved with the client. In this webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter explains the importance of avoiding this most basic conflict of interest and relates the tragic (but sometimes fascinating) tales of lawyers who learned this lesson too late.
