This class was assigned 1.0 hours of Professionalism and 0.5 hours of general credit by the State Bar of Georgia. Our system just isn’t set up to let us assign more than one type of credit to a single course. Hollywood might not be able to teach much when it comes to actual ethics, but it can teach legal ethics! This class covers the model rules in a way that is sticky. By using Hollywood storylines and real-life examples, the attorney will be able to remember these rules when it matters most – while practicing! Professionalism is a wide umbrella of ideals, including competence, civility, ethics, integrity, respect for the rule of law, the legal profession, other lawyers, the courts, clients and the public, fidelity to the lawyer’s roles as an officer of the court, counselor at law, serving as a resolver of problems, committing to diversity, upholding duties to provide pro bono legal representation, community and public service, and working to improve the law and the legal system, and to assure access to that system. See Chief Justices Commission on Professionalism, Part IX, Rule 9-102, Rules and Regulations for the Organization and Government of the State Bar of Georgia (2018).
