8 Reasons Movie-Lawyers Would be Disciplined
Attorneys in film are constantly violating the ethics rules. Of course, the public probably doesn’t realize it, but us lawyers need to make sure that we don’t repeat these sometimes ridiculous gaffes. Join the CLE Performer, Stuart Teicher, Esq., as he explains the sometimes obvious and sometimes subtle ethics violations committed by lawyers in movies and on TV. Topics will include:
• When our favorite Cousin Vinny lies (Rule 4.1)
• Busting ghosts, and bestie judges (Rule 8.3(b))
• When a TV lawyer preys on the vulnerable (Rule 7.3)
• When they’re crashing weddings and mediating divorce cases (Rule 2.4)
Tik Tok, Twitter, Tech, and Ethics
Tik Tok might be the the biggest tech-related issue in attorney ethics these days, but it’s certainly not the only one. Join the CLE performer, Stuart Teicher, Esq. As he explains the latest and not-so-greatest issues in legal ethics and technology.
• Could lawyers accept crypto as a fee? Rule 1.15
• The danger of cloud storage companies taking your files. Rule 1.6
• The concern about using Twitter as a tool of the practice. Rule 3.6
What the Song of the Century Teaches about Inclusion in the Law
A white man and a black woman joined forces to create the most powerful protest song in the history of modern music. “Strange Fruit” was deemed the song of the 20th Century and the story of its creation teaches lawyers valuable lessons about inclusion in the law. Stuart explains how collaboration and friendship form the bedrock needed to create a foundation of inclusion in the practice of law.
Speaker: Stuart Teicher, The CLE Performer
There will be a 5-minute break between topics.
