View sample from recorded program
In this interactive game modeled after the popular television game show, you will be presented with 30 briefcases. Each briefcase contains the details of an actual disciplinary case that was filed against a U.S. lawyer. When you select a case, you will hear the facts of the case and then, as counsel for the respondent, you will be offered a "deal" (e.g., a reprimand, 1-year suspension, etc.). You will then be asked to accept the proposed discipline or to reject it, in hopes that the actual sanction imposed was less severe than the proposed sanction. If you choose correctly (accepting a good deal or rejecting a bad deal), you will be awarded the points contained in that briefcase.
At the end of the hour, you will see how your score compares to other lawyers across the country.
In this interactive game modeled after the popular television game show, lawyers from across the country will compete by attempting to correctly advise real-life lawyers who have run afoul of the ethical canon as it relates to:

  • Civility
  • Client communication
  • Competence
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Fees
  • Legal marketing
  • Trust accounting
  • And much more After participants have had a chance to make their selection, the actual discipline imposed against the attorney will be revealed, along with a brief discussion as to the disciplinary body's reasoning and the lessons that we can learn to avoid suffering a similar fate.
This program is eligible for 1 hour of Ethics & Professionalism in KS.
