Cat proverbs and attorney ethics
Why do we have so many cat sayings; what do they mean; and do they really teach anything about attorney ethics? Stuart Teicher, the CLE Performer (and certified cat lover) will explain it all. Join him as he talks about the origins of cat sayings and explains the ethics lessons provided by each. Sayings (and topics) include:

  • Curiosity might have killed the cat, but it could save a lawyer when advising, Rule 2.1
  • Letting the ethical cat out of the bag and confidentiality, Rule 1.6
  • Cat's got your tongue? The lawyer's need to communicate, Rule 1.4

Airplane etiquette and attorney ethics
There are ways to behave on an airplane, and there are ways not to behave on an airplane. It’s the same thing in the practice of law. Join Stuart Teicher as he makes comparisons between air travel and lawyering. Topics include:

  • The airport, and the tribunal. They are both sacred spaces (Rule 3.3)
  • Treating flight attendants with respect (Rule 3.5)
  • When your seat-mate is a pig (Rule 8.4(d) and professionalism concerns)

Stuart travels to Alabama to teach about diversity and inclusion
Two landmark civil rights events occurred in Alabama — the Scottsboro Boys case and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Both of those events have important lessons to teach lawyers about diversity and inclusion in the practice of law. Join Stuart Teicher as he travels to Alabama and delivers a travel-vlog style program where he addresses:

  • The difference between elimination of bias and diversity.
  • The importance of lawyers delivering on what he calls, “Diversity 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5” — diversity, inclusion, and belonging.
  • Steps lawyers can take in the practice to bring about inclusion and belonging in the practice of law.
