Each year, Hollywood celebrates the best performances in motion pictures at the Oscars. Well, this year, we will celebrate the worst ethics violations in the legal profession at the Ethys. Featuring this year’s winners of the coveted Ethy for Best Original Excuse, Least Competent in a Legal Representation, Most Over-Animated Courtroom Outburst, a special Lifetime Achievement Award and so much more. In the process of recapping some of the most egregious instances of unethical behavior, Harvard Law graduate, Sean Carter will demonstrate how the rest of us can avoid more common ethical violations.
Part Two | Yelp! I’ve Fallen for Social Media & I Can’t Get Out | 1:00 – 3:00 pm | 2.0 MCLE Ethics
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the other social media tools have become ubiquitous in our high-tech society. And while social media can undoubtedly help lawyers to enhance their networks of colleagues, clients and prospective clients, it can also ensnare the unwary in a web of ethical violations. So set your Outlook calendar, post the date on your Facebook wall and get ready to be “linked in” with your colleagues from across the county as we take an in-depth look at the ethics rules, bar opinions and real-life disciplinary cases studies as they relate to social media. And as always, Sean Carter will use the quick wit that has made him a favorite CLE presenter in more than 40 states to make you “Yelp” with laughter while showing you how to stay Four Square within your ethical boundaries.
