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.

Up for nomination for the best impersonation of a real female lawyer, the candidates are Reese Witherspoon for her portrayal of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde ... and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for her depiction of herself in On the Basis of Sex. Hollywood has gotten a lot right when it comes to stories about lawyers, and has missed the mark a time or two.

It's every litigator's worst nightmare. Worse than appearing before a court sans-trousers. Being on the receiving end of a harsh rebuke from a judge does not end up on too many lawyer's "Top 10 Fondest Memories" list. That being said, there is a lot to learn about oral argument from bench slaps. 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!

This class looks to turn your legal practice into a gold medal practice! We will look at the training modules for an Olympic athlete, and then apply those to the law practice. This class is being taught by Joel Oster and 2 time Olympic Medalist Shannon Bahrke-Happe.

Your mother always told you – you can learn things the easy way … or the hard way! This class allows you to learn legal ethics – the easy way. By reviewing the mistakes other lawyers have made, from advising clients to put a sign up in their yard announcing illegal activity was going on inside the house, to lawyers getting opposing counsel drunk just to score some points with the jury, this class hands out the Darwinian Awards. Charles Darwin had a theory that only the fittest survive. Well … you can be among the fittest by adjusting your behavior to not match these lawyers.

After being explained the facts of a real case, the attorney will be presented with a deal. Should the attorney take the deal … or take his or her chance at trial?

This class is for constitutional attorneys, litigators, criminal attorneys, and any attorney interested in vindicating a person’s constitutional rights, or defending a government policy from a constitutional challenge. Constitutional litigation is a rewarding practice. Constitutional rights are some of the most cherished and valued rights people possess. And when those rights have been denied, people often feel like the system is crashing in around them. This class will walk you through the steps of successfully bringing a constitutional claim.

Can any area of the law be more complicated than Campaign Finance? The landmark decision in campaign finance, Buckley v. Valeo, is 294 pages long. That’s a textbook, not a court decision! This class seeks to obtain the impossible: make campaign finance law seem simple, concise and non-life threatening! To that end, we explore the history of corruption in politics, the efforts to curb that corruption, and what the Court thinks of those efforts. Along the way, we will discuss the landmark Supreme Court campaign finance cases of Buckley v. Valeo, Citizens United v. FEC, McCutcheon v. FEC, and Arizona Free Enterprise Club v. Bennett. By the end of this class, you will know the distinction between expenditures and contributions, candidates and measures, and why you avoid campaign finance like holiday fruit cake.

When it comes to searching and seizing, this Court has been busy defining the parameters of proper police conduct! Does a cop need to get a warrant to poke a needle in a person to get his blood alcohol content, or do exigent circumstances always exist in DUI cases to prevent the destruction of evidence? What about cell phones? Can a cop look through all of the selfies you have taken upon arrest as a search incident to such arrest? You have to admit, this might make law enforcement’s job a little bit more enjoyable … not to mention successful! What about dogs? Are they required to take an oath now before testifying in court? Well, this class looks at the recent trends of the Court in dealing with the Fourth Amendment, including Missouri v. McNeely, 133 S.Ct. 1552 (2013), Riley v. California, 134 S.Ct. 2473 (2014), Maryland v King, Florida v. Harris, 133 S.Ct. 1050 (1013), Kentucky v King, 131 S.Ct. 1849, Heien v. North Carolina and United States v. Jones. So before searching and seizing, tune in to what the Nine has to say.

Everyone’s favorite amendment! Everyone loves to take the Fifth! Whether it be in court to prevent self incrimination, or at home to avoid the stare of family members who are PO’ed that you took the last brownie, people are using this amendment at an alarming rate! So this class looks at recent Supreme Court cases dealing with the Fifth Amendment, including Salinas v. Texas, 133 S.Ct. 2174 (2013), White v. Woodall, 134 S.Ct. 1697 (2014), Kansas v. Cheever, 134 S. Ct. 596 (2013), Evans v. Michigan, 568 U.S. ___ (2013), Perry v. New Hampshire, 132 S.Ct. 716 (2012) and J. D. B. v. North Carolina, 131 S. Ct. 2394 (2011). In one particularly ironic case, it deals with whether a person can claim the right to remain silent by … being silent. Turns out you can’t!

This class looks at the law behind the headlines. Is spilling coffee the equivalent of winning the litigation lottery? Since the sitcom Seinfeld can be about nothing, does a lawsuit against Jerry Seinfeld must be about something?
