Avoiding Trust Accounting Violations (1 hour of Ethics)

One of the fundamental principles of legal ethics can be summed up as: "Keep your hands off the money." And while this is a gross oversimplification of the legal ethics rules, it is true that this breach of fiduciary trust is among the gravest transgressions that a lawyer can make. Moreover, as it are often amongst the most heavily-punished violations, it often start a cascading effect of rule-breaking as lawyers desperately attempt to avoid detection. As a result, it never hurts to review this all-important ethical limitation on lawyer conduct.
In this laugh-out-loud funny webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will go through the ins and outs of avoiding trust account violations, specifically as it applies 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
This program is eligible for 1 hour of Ethics in OR.
