Comedic Debriefing of the Law featuring Joel Oster, Esq. - June 22, 2021 - CLE up to 7.0 hours includes 5.0 ethics and 1.0 elimination of bias

Description

John Cleese of Monty Python fame said, “He who laughs most learns best.”  This applies equally to CLE and to persuade others in your practice. This class is a comprehensive de-briefing of the law.  Starting with ethics, we review the crazy predicaments some ethically challenged attorneys have found themselves.  You will have to decide based on the severity of the facts and the relevant model rule, would you take a deal for that violation.  While Hollywood might not be setting the finest examples when it comes to actual morals and ethics, they do a good job of exhibiting legal ethics.  We will explore the Model Rules through the eyes of Hollywood.  From Hollywood, it’s not a long journey to our legal rock stars – the Nine! The Supreme Court, aka, the Real League of Justice, has been busy exerting its superhero legal powers.  We will review a recent landmark Supreme Court case.  For example, Masterpiece Cakeshop and stale while wedding cake: discrimination or a valid excuse to skip your cousin’s wedding?
