Lawyers and lies

March 10, 2017 at 10am PT / 1pm ET

Posted in Avvo webinars, CLE

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. Attorneys who attend this webinar can expect to learn:

  • 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 granted to those that attend the live, online session.
