Presentation Description:

Join us for a fun, but informative, CLE ethics seminar in the format of a panel game show. Contestants answer and discuss legal ethics questions, hypotheticals and dilemmas posed by our Legal Ethics Hosts, who will involve the audience in competition with the panel as well as lively discussion on current legal ethics issues and rules of professional practice. Contestants and the audience may be asked to select the true ethics story from among fictional hypotheticals, guess the ending to bizarre ethics sagas provide the final lines of a poem that describes an ethics controversy or simply answer a traditional true/false or multiple choice questions.  Discussion will follow each question wherein the Legal Ethics Hosts will provide references to relevant rules, cases and ethics opinions.

Topics include:

  • The use of social media                                                         
  • Electronic discovery
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Reporting misconduct and breaches of ethical rules
  • Expert witness issues
  • Spousal conflicts and other relative-related conflicts
  • Whistleblowing
  • Reporting legal misconduct of counsel
  • Negotiation tactics
  • Litigation tactics v. ethnical misconduct
  • Multi-jurisdictional practice issues
  • Communication and disclosure dilemmas
  • Lying witnesses
  • Threats and coercive tactics
  • Attorney-client privilege
  • And much, much more . . .

We encourage members to bring an associate, colleague or friend who may benefit from learning more about this topic, or who might be interested in joining our Mid-America Chapter of ACC.  The Association of Corporate Counsel offers many benefits and resources to in-house counsel and we look forward to sharing that information with others in this field.
