News and Announcements


1. NEW! “Ethics Wars!” is a dynamic, debate-style interactive legal ethics seminar that features legal ethicist Jack Marshall and malpractice defense specialist John May examining current and complex legal ethics issues, often from completely different perspectives. The seminar, which also encourages audience participation, is available via Zoom or live, has two and three hour versions (all for CLE credit), and is updated regularly.

2. ProEthics is constantly updating and expanding its legal technology and ethics seminars, and law firms have found them as useful and informative as they are alarming. Technology competence, though stil not specifically recognized in the rules of all jurisdictions, is an essential feature of ethical practice (and the avoidance of malpractice).

3. ProEthics has a full range of legal ethics CLE Zoom presentations, with more being developed constantly. Although nothing is as effective, dynamic, and valuable as in person, live, face to face legal ethics seminars, if those are not advisable or difficult due to the current pandemic concerns, ProEthics is ready and able to offer remote learning options. ProEthics musical legal ethics programs are also available via Zoom.

4.Our recent 3 hour D.C. Bar CLE seminar, “Clarence Darrow’s Ethics Lessons for Today’s More Ethical Lawyers, received an average approval rating of 4.9 (out of a maximum of 5) from attendees. This unique and popular seminar featured accalimed D.C. actor Paul Morella presenting many of Darrow’s most famous and important courtroom oratory, as well as his examination of William Jennings Bryan in the Scopes trial.

5. The ProEthics-D.C. Bar video production of D.C.’s  Mandatory Course on the
D.C. RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT was recently honored by the American Continuing Legal Education Association as one of the most outstanding programs of 2019.

6.Other new ProEthics programs include Legal Ethics Inquisition (three hours), The Legal Ethics Mine Field (two or three hours), Ethics And the Government Lawyer 2021 (three hours), and more.
