Event:
Don't Be an Outlaw: The Ethycal Imperative to Follow the Law - LIVE WEBCAST
 
Additional Information:
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 will recount 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.

For an officer of the court and one who has sworn an oath of fidelity to the law, there is very little tolerance for any unlawful behavior, even that which would be considered minor or insignificant to most citizens. In this webinar, humorist Sean Carte will demonstrate how even the smallest legal infractions can carry large ethical sanctions. And he will provide tips to help lawyers from inadvertently crossing the legal trip wires as they pertain to:

  • The unauthorized practice of law
  • Moral character and fitness
  • Low crimes and misdemeanors
  • Criminal infractions
  • Crimes of passion
