12:00 pm     Addressing Bad Behavior in Depositions
Prof. Suzanne Valdez, University of Kansas School of Law, Lawrence
The accelerating decline in professionalism has been the subject of increasing concern to the law profession for many years.  In particular, bad behavior in depositions has increased, and courts have reacted by imposing appropriate sanctions.  This 1-hour ethics presentation will highlight cases involving bad behavior in depositions and the courts’ use of ethics rules and professionalism codes to address such bad behavior.
