8 Reasons Movie-Lawyers Would be Disciplined

Attorneys in film are constantly violating the ethics rules. Of course, sometimes those gaffes happen in real life too, and lawyers need to make sure that we don’t repeat those mistakes. Join the CLE Performer, Stuart Teicher, Esq., as he explains the sometimes obvious and sometimes subtle ethics violations committed by lawyers in movies and on TV.
Topics will include:
– You’re out of order! We’re all out of order!
– What’s prejudicial to the administration of justice? Rule 8.4(d)
– How fictional lawyers are constantly disrupting a tribunal. Rule 3.4(d)
– Shouldn’t the other lawyers who see this stuff happen report their colleagues? Rule 8.3(a)
