Lawyers, liars, and lunatics! This class is part one of a two part series focusing on why some people (lunatics) think that lawyers have a problem with lying. We go to the top of our profession – good ol’ Honest Abe – to see what he has to say about honesty in the legal profession. Do we have a problem with honesty? And if so, what can we do to fix it? In this class, we look at the various model rules requiring honest legal practices, such as 3.3, 4.1, 7.1 and 8.4, and then look at case examples where attorneys have been disciplined for dishonest activities. And of course, we end by vowing to not do likewise.

It's every litigator's worst nightmare. Worse than appearing before a court sans-trousers.

We look at some of the worst bench slaps, analyze why the slap occurred, and most importantly, how you can avoid it happening to you!

Have you ever laughed in court? Tried to make a joke? Play off a judge's joke? Humor in court can assist your case … or it can kill your cause.

This class is for all attorneys.
