Don’t Join the Jerks | Professional Ethics, Common Sense and Common Decency

Being a jerk is easy. It’s especially easy if our opponents are jerks first. It’s also a pretty lousy way to practice law. Being advocates doesn't mean lawyers need to be rude, sneaky, obstructionist or condescending – no matter how tempting or satisfying it may feel in the moment. Ethics rules call on us to make meritorious claims, expedite cases, and act with candor and fairness toward courts, parties and opposing lawyers. In this session, we’ll discuss how lawyers best serve their clients, the judicial system, and our profession by following both the letter and the spirit of those rules.

This CLE is approved for credit through December 21, 2025.
