Oregon State Bar-Caution: Keep Hands Off!

Upcoming Webcasts

Caution: Keep Hands Off!

(2 hours of Ethics)

It's been said that the entire legal ethics canon can be summed up in two rules: (1) Keep your hands off the money; and (2) Keep your hands off the client. And while this is a gross oversimplification of the legal ethics rules, it is true that these two breaches of fiduciary trust are among the gravest transgressions that a lawyer can make. Moreover, as they are often amongst the most heavily-punished violations, they often start a cascading effect of rule-breaking as lawyers desperately attempt to avoid their detection. As a result, it never hurts to review these all-important ethical limitations on lawyer conduct.
In this laugh-out-loud funny webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will do just that as he goes through the ins and outs of these two ethical principals, specifically as they apply to:

  • Stealing (and "borrowing") client funds
  • Retaining funds that rightfully belong to others
  • Using undue influence to inherit client wealth
  • Diverting fees from one's law partners
  • Premature withdrawal of earned fees
  • Coercing desperate clients into physical relationships
  • Sending lewd texts and messages to clients
  • Conditioning representation upon sex
  • Leading the client on about a possible relationship
This program is eligible for 2 hours of Ethics in OR.
