 Don't Be An Outlaw
The Ethycal Imperative to Follow the Law

Wednesday, August 14, 2019
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Lawyers must not only have a fundamental understanding of the law, but also, a fundamental commitment to abiding by it.  And while the necessity to avoid committing major felonies is obvious to everyone, some lawyers forget about the necessity to follow the “little laws” as well. For an officer of the court and one who has sworn an oath of fidelity to the law, there is very little tolerance for any unlawful behavior, even that which would be considered minor or insignificant to most citizens. 
To demonstrate how even the smallest legal infractions can carry large ethical sanctions, humorist Sean Carter will recount the tales of past nominees of Ethy Awards, the annual awards given to lawyers who engage in the best of the worst ethics violations.  These lawyers learned, albeit too late, that if you do the crime, you will do the disciplinary time. 
In particular, Carter will provide tips to help lawyers from inadvertently crossing the legal trip wires as they pertain to: 

• The unauthorized practice of law;
• Moral character and fitness;
• Low crimes and misdemeanors
• Criminal infractions
• Crimes of passion
 

Please note there will be no refunds for canceled or missed programs.
