Analysis by Scenario: Tennessee Ethics

Description:

Every Tennessee attorney is obligated to know the rules and to act in accordance with their ethical duties. Nevertheless, the increasing complexity associated with the modern day practice of law, as well as increasing specialization, has led to a world in which compliance with our ethical obligations is not always so simple as just sitting down and reading what the rules say. This course is designed to look at some specific facts and circumstances which, depending on the nature of your practice, may or may not be common to your daily experiences. Nevertheless, the course is designed to enhance awareness and understanding of the Rules of Professional Conduct.

Scenarios include: advertising, case referrals, conflicts, and several others.

Interactive text programs include questions, response actions, tab activities, and other engaging features.

Comments from attendees:

"Good, practical scenarios that could actually arise for any given lawyer."

Clarified a few points for me.

Nice mix of ethical questions - learned about lawyer trust accounts.

Well done. Examples of modern marketing, of counsel, and trust accounting issues are very helpful. Dan Small

Helpful for closely examining some common situations within a law firm and how conflicts can (and cannot) be determined.

Good program and well-presented technologically. I wish there were more examples of business-related conflicts and ethics questions, and a bit less litigation focus, but I know such is available in other courses.

Good diversity of issues touching on most of the key areas one comes into contact with in regular practice, with a smattering of less common issues of interest.

Really good real life scenarios.

I enjoyed the variation in presenting the questions.

One of the better on-line courses I've had. I'm older and not very tech savvy so this was a good fit.

Excellent on-line interactive ethics presentation. Thanks Brian!
