Ethics Roadshow 2018: Part 2


Many ethical issues can be complicated and nuanced. Often those issues are the ones that lend themselves to public presentation because of the layered issues and academic rigor with which they can be tackled. But, sometimes, it is important to step back and focus on the basics. Most instances in which situations really go sour and lawyers end up on the receiving end of discipline involve failures to comply with fundamental ethical obligations.

This year’s Roadshow offers an opportunity to get “back-to-basics” and look at significant developments during 2018 in the world of lawyering. This presentation will focus on the five “Cs” that make up a recipe for ethical lawyering no matter what kind of law practice you have: the ethical duties of Competence, Confidentiality, (Avoiding) Conflicts, Communication, and Candor.

He is excellent.

The presentation was interesting and related to situations I could recognize as coming up in a business practice.

Useful review along with interesting thoughts on the future of the legal profession.

It wasn't so much new information, but a good refresher on ethics rules I haven't reviewed in many years.

As I said after watching Part I, I always enjoy Brian's Ethics Roadshow presentations and appreciate very much his preparedness and dedication to putting on an informative and entertaining CLE.

A very detailed, easy-to-follow presentation. I enjoyed it.

One of the best presenters out there in my opinion.

The Dunning Kruger Effect and Imposter Syndrome stuff was interesting

I want to learn more about the duty of confidentiality owed to a client even though the information is contained in a public document, such as a pleading.

Excellent, as always.
