What Not To Do, The Sequel!

You know that feeling you get when you want to yell at the screen because a fictional lawyer in a television show mishandled a legal ethics dilemma? In this 2022 sequel to last year’s CLE, we will set the stage with new examples of how fictional attorneys handled a thorny issue, and then break down how the attorney got it wrong (or right) by discussing the professional conduct duties that we owe to clients. Active attendee participation is encouraged.


  • Attorney Misconduct
  • Competence
  • Conflicts
  • Lawyer Wellness
  • Maintaining Confidences
