Audio and Video



There is no better way to understand ethics and professionalism than by learning the story of the Watergate lawyers. That’s because the sophisticated, accomplished lawyers who were embroiled in that scandal violated nearly every professionalism standard imaginable. In this travel-journal style program, the CLE Performer, Stuart Teicher, Esq., sees the sites and tells the story of this important moment in American history, teaching about attorney ethics in the process.

Topics include:

  • The independence of the lawyer in the context of the lawyer-client relationship, Rule 2.1.
  • The conflict between duty to client and duty to the public good, Rule 1.7.
  • The lawyer's responsibility to perceive and protect the image of the profession.
  • The responsibility of the lawyer to the public generally and to public service, Rule 6.1.
  • And more!

Speaker: Stuart Teicher, The CLE Performer
