CLE CREDITS: 1.0 ethics

Lawyers on our favorite legal dramas - Boston Legal, The Practice, L.A. Law - often act in ways that would cause significant trouble for actual lawyers. In this multimedia presentation, legal humorist Sean Carter demonstrates some of the worst of TV lawyer behavior and explains how similar (although less severe) behavior sometimes creeps into the actual practice of law, decreasing a lawyer's ability to best serve his or her clients and uphold the ideals of the profession.

In this multimedia webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will demonstrate some of the worst of TV lawyer behavior through short (30-60 second) video clips from these shows. After each video snippet, he will discuss the precise rule violated and what the lawyer should have done to avoid the ethical violation.

While these examples will provide for a more engaging experience for the lawyer attendee, they will also serve as a reminder that our clients are watching these same programs. As a result, this webinar will serve as a useful reminder for each attorney to manage the client's expectations by having candid conversations detailing just what the lawyer can (and more importantly, can NOT) do in the course of the representation.
