Lawyers and lies

(1hr Ethics CLE credit in CA, FL, IL, NV,*NY, PA, TX and WA)

September 8, 2016 at 10am PT / 1pm ET

Posted in Ethics, Webinar


Most of us are taught that being honest is an unquestioned virtue – yet the law doesn’t necessarily see it that way. This course will explore the legal status of “required honesty,” before diving deep into a review of the various Rules of Professional Conduct relating to honesty, and how they play out depending on the relationship between attorney-speaker and subject.

Lawyers who attend this webinar will learn about:

  • The relationship between First Amendment protected speech and professional speech regulation.
  • How shifting cultural values shape what we define as a lie.
  • Negotiation ethics and the difference between bargaining and lying.

Please note, CLE credit will only be given to those that attend the live, online session. While there is a dial in available for this meeting, you must login from your computer to receive credit.
