Ethics Express features Stuart Teicher, dubbed the CLE performer, presenting:
Eight reasons movie-lawyers would be disciplined
Lawyers in film are constantly violating ethics rules. Of course, sometimes those gaffes happen in real life, too, and lawyers need to make sure they don’t repeat those mistakes. Teicher explains the sometimes obvious and sometimes subtle ethics violations committed by lawyers in movies and on TV.
This course reviews:
• You’re out of order! We’re all out of order! What’s prejudicial to the administration of justice? (Rule 8.4(d))
• How fictional lawyers are constantly disrupting a tribunal (Rule 3.4(d))
• Shouldn’t the other lawyers who see this stuff happen report their colleagues? (Rule 8.3(a))
TikTok, Twitter, tech, and ethics
TikTok might be the biggest tech-related issue in lawyer ethics these days, but it’s certainly not the only one. Teicher will discuss the latest and not-so-greatest issues in legal ethics and technology.
He will examine:
• How email can still kill your career (Reply to all and Rule 4.2)
• Could lawyers accept crypto as a fee? (Rule 1.15)
• The duty to see online scams coming (Rule 1.1)
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. Teicher explains how collaboration and friendship form the bedrock needed to create a foundation of inclusion in the practice of law.
Starting April 19 and running from 1-3:55 p.m., Ethics Express is available for registration online at MoBarCLE.org.
