CLE CREDITS: 2.50 ethics (if viewed on date & time of scheduled presentation)
Some have called Sir Thomas More the first "modern man." He was certainly the quintessential Renaissance man ... lawyer, statesman, philosopher, linguist, raconteur, Chancellor of England ... and author of one of the great books of western civilization, Utopia. Despite all that, Sir Thomas More was beheaded by King Henry VIII in 1535 for high treason. 
Maxims, Monarchy and Sir Thomas More is a movie focusing on some of the issues with which lawyers must deal every day - particularly those situations where there are conflicts between personal conscience and public loyalties.  It takes the audience into the last intensely intimate hour with Thomas More just before his execution. Still wrestling with the moral dilemmas that led him to the block, he cracks jokes, makes up songs, takes jabs at his tormentors and eventually finds peace in his fate. Though the story takes place in a religious context, it serves to provide keen insight into this universal human struggle in secular settings and explore ethical and moral decisions in legal practice. The movie explores conflicts between private conscience and public loyalty and provides a platform for discussion of these conflicts as they relate to ethical and moral decisions in contemporary legal practice.
The movie is followed by a filmed panel discussion and a Moderated Live Chat Room Discussion, in which all attendees can participate.  Attendees are asked to focus on the ethical issues and concerns raised in the movie relating to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct.
