Film and the Law Series: My Blue Heaven Sept 4, 2019

 Registration is closed for this event


This film in the law seminar will focus on the sleazy stuff. Sleazy clients, sleazy lawyers, and the ethical implications of that sort of distasteful behavior.  Attendees will learn about access to justice issues, the rules on misconduct and misrepresentation, and much more.  Finally, after watching the movie My Blue Heaven, we will hold an attorney forum where we will explore the boundaries and breadth of ethical behavior. Where are the lines drawn? How far do the arms of the disciplinary system extend outside of the practice of law? What if the main character was a lawyer? When you’re done, you’ll leave the program begging the world of professional responsibility to, “Please, please, protect me from ethical sleaze!”

Movie Synopsis:

Movie Synopsis: My Blue Heaven – Vinnie Antonelli (Steve Martin) trades the mob for the witness protection program and moves to a small suburb in California. But for Vinnie, old ways die hard. He becomes a challenge for Barney Coopersmith (Rick Moranis), the FBI agent in charge of making sure Vinnie keeps a low profile before he can testify against his former mob associates. Barney, though, might actually be able to learn some things from Vinnie. That is, if Barney can keep him alive long enough.
