Description

MoBarCLE, in partnership with CLESeminars.com, bring you this quality seminar.

(This is a “simulive” rebroadcast of a previously recorded presentation. The presenter will be available during the rebroadcast to answer questions.)​

Rule 8.3 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct indicates that “a lawyer who knows that that a judge has committed a violation of applicable rules of judicial conduct that raises a substantial question as to the judge's fitness for office shall inform the appropriate authority.” Rule 8.4 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct explains that it is professional misconduct for a lawyer to knowingly assist a judge in conduct that is a violation of applicable rules of judicial conduct.   Therefore, it is incumbent on every attorney to also be familiar with the rules of Judicial Conduct in the jurisdictions where they appear and the type of conduct that is to be expected from the Bench. 

In this presentation, attorneys will gain a working knowledge of the Rules of Judicial Conduct through a review of recent ethics decisions where judges were disciplined for ethical misconduct. 

Attorneys will also learn what they can do if they observe judicial misconduct. 

Past attendees have described this presentation as “educational, engaging, entertaining, lively, informative, humorous, useful and really well done.”
