CLE Webinar | 2021 Masters Seminar on Ethics

June 10 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


Approved by The Florida Bar for 4.0 hours of General CLE credit. All of which may be applied towards Ethics

Every attorney, regardless of area of practice, encounters ethical issues as part of his or her practice. The ever-changing nature of the law and technology presents new challenges and opportunities for lawyers, but it can also present ethical issues. This is especially true due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has/had lawyers working remotely than ever before, raising new issues, including how to practice ethically in a remote world. The 2021 Masters Seminar on Ethics will address these topics in an informative, engaging manner using experienced and dynamic speakers. This seminar will address the grievance system and explore the kinds of actions that get lawyers disciplined by the bar and how to avoid it for yourself. The seminar will also address the psychology of persuasion and truth decay and discuss how it jeopardizes the legal system. Finally, there will be a judicial panel where judges will address ethical issues they are confronted with and address in their courtrooms.
