Nice Lawyers Finish First
Presented by: Legal Humorist Sean Carter

It's been said that nice guys finish last. And while that might be true in the rough and tumble arenas of politics, professional prize fighting and marriage, nothing could be further from the truth in the practice of law. Zealous representation doesn't require us to be zealots. In fact, the most effective representation requires just the opposite. Nice lawyers finish first ... and so do their clients!

From Competence to Excellence: The Ethycal Imperative for Excellent Client Service
Presented by: Legal Humorist Sean Carter

The very first rule of the ethics canon calls for lawyers to provide competent representation to clients. Yet, mere competence isn't enough to satisfy our ethical obligations to our clients. We must instead strive for excellence. In this unique webinar, noted legal humorist Sean Carter will highlight the need for excellence in client service and demonstrate the consequences of mediocrity by recounting the sagas of past Ethy Award nominees -- lawyers who earned CLE infamy for the failure to provide excellent client service.

Don't Be an Outlaw: The Ethycal Imperative to Follow the Law
Presented by: Legal Humorist Sean Carter

Lawyers must not only have a fundamental understanding of the law, but also, a fundamental commitment to abiding by it. And while the necessity to avoid committing major felonies is obvious to everyone, some lawyers forget about the necessity to follow the "little laws" as well. In this eye-opening webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will recount the tales of past Ethy Award nominees (those who were recognized the best of the worst ethics violations). These lawyers learned, albeit too late, that if you do even a minor crime, you will do the disciplinary time.

Loose Lips Sink Partnerships (and Clients Too): The Ethical Way to Honor Client Confidentiality
Presented by: Legal Humorist Sean Carter

This trust is one of the hallmarks of the client-lawyer relationship. In this surprisingly funny webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will explore the contours of the rules concerning lawyer confidentiality.

Copywriting for Lawyers: How to Win Cases and Influence People
Presented by: Lisa Solomon

All lawyers, regardless of practice area, must be forceful and effective communicators in order to best serve the needs of their clients. And in this webinar, noted legal writing expert Lisa Solomon, will introduce you to the techniques used by the most effective persuasive writers in society -- copywriters. And just as copywriters use Storytelling, the "Foot in the Door" technique, and Social Proof to sell everything from toasters to super computing systems, you can use them to effectively "sell" your client's position in pleadings, briefs, contract negotiations, etc.

The Personal Contact Rule: No Draculas Allowed
Presented by: Professor Mark Yochum

The ethics canon treats the lawyer like Count Dracula. The lawyer must be invited to meet the fresh client on whom he "feeds." He cannot badger the weak and infirm. He must pay not even one pint of his fees to others to recommend him. He only has free license with his families of blood and friends, of others of his profession, and of those previously marked by him as his clients. And while such rules might have made sense in 19th century Transylvania, how do 21st century lawyers abide by them in an increasingly interconnected world of personal networks and social media?

The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth: The Ethycal Imperative for Honesty in Law Practice
Presented by: Legal Humorist Sean Carter

Dr. Martin Luther King once said, "A fact is the absence of contradiction, but the truth is the presence of coherence." As lawyers, we are duty bound to be more than just factual. Lawyers must tell the truth to clients, judges, and even opposing counsel and third parties. In this eye-opening webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will deal frankly with the very human inclination for dishonesty and explain how to avoid the traps from which dishonesty most often springs. In doing so, he will draw upon current and past nominees from his annual Ethy Awards to show the consequences of dishonesty.
