The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth
The Ethycal Imperative for Honesty in Law Practice

Brought to you in partnership with Mesa CLE


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "A fact is the absence of contradiction, but the truth is the presence of coherence." As lawyers, we are duty bound to be more than just factual. Lawyers must tell the truth to clients, judges, and even opposing counsel and third parties.

In this eye-opening webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will deal frankly with the very human inclination for dishonesty and explain how to avoid the traps from which dishonesty most often springs. In doing so, he will draw upon current and past nominees from his annual Ethy Awards for the worst ethical behavior to provide poignant reminders of the consequences of dishonesty. In particular, this webinar will cover:

  • Disclosure obligations at the outset of the representation
  • Communicating fully with clients
  • Candor towards the tribunal
  • The duty of honesty to opposing parties and third parties
  • Truthful marketing practices
  • Responding to disciplinary bodies

Sean Carter is a Harvard Law grad, who spent a decade practicing securities law before leaving the practice of law to pursue a career as the country's foremost Humorist at Law. Since then, Mr. Carter has crisscrossed the country delivering comedic professional educational seminars for more than 350 legal organizations in three dozen states. His presentation topics run the gamut from legal ethics to stress management to diversity. Yet, all of his presentations have one thing in common -- humor and plenty of it. In fact, in 2003, Mr. Carter was dubbled "America's Funniest Lawyer" by The Radio and Television Interview Report. Finally, Sean lives in Mesa, Arizona with his wife and four sons.
