Attorneys, as stewards of justice, are entrusted with the responsibility to champion fairness, honesty, and the rule of law. The importance of ethics in the legal profession extends beyond mere compliance with codes of conduct; it embodies a commitment to principles that safeguard the rights and well-being of individuals, maintain public trust, and contribute to the overall legitimacy of the legal system. Here are 5 seminars focusing on ethics.

6 CLE / 6 E - From November 2023 - One of our highest rated seminars! Law has long been considered a profession. Implied in this special designation was the belief that the practice of law was indispensable to the well-being of society and that a lawyer served the common good in a distinctive, fundamental way. A lawyer’s work was not just a job, but a genuine vocation, a calling. Without a sense of calling, however, the practice of law becomes the regulated business of providing legal services and lawyers become mere service providers who finds little satisfaction in the law. Many would argue this is the state of the profession today. This program explores the historic role of calling in the legal profession and the implications of its absence for the future of the profession.
