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.
