“Ethics By The Number, Conflicts By The Score: An Ethics Jamboree!”


The Country-Western Musical CLE Seminar

ProEthics’ newest musical CLE seminar, “Ethics By The Number, Conflicts By The Score: An Ethics Jamboree!”, premiered April 20 at the D.C. Bar’s annual Judicial Conference. It was a great hit with the audience, which was tested with more than a score of legal ethics issues posed by guitarist-singer Mike Messer’s renditions of humorous parodies of such Country classics as “Crazy,” “El Paso,” “Long, Long Time,” “The Gambler,” Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Lawyers,’ and more. Among the topics covered:

  • fee padding,
  • advertising,
  • UPL
  • lawyer blogging,
  • predictive coding,
  • lawyer character,
  • the profession of law vs. the business of law,
  • client perjury
  • clients with a disability
  • falsity,
  • and more.

As with all ProEthics Musical Seminars, Ethics Jamboree ends with a sing-along, a parody to the melody of “The Gambler.”
