The (Mal)Practice

From the Don't Try This At Home Series (1 hour of Ethics)

May 30, 2023
5:00 pm- 6:00 pm PT
Lawyers on our favorite TV legal dramas often act in ways that would cause significant trouble for actual lawyers. In this multimedia webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will use short video clips from the very popular series, The Practice, to demonstrate some of the legal ethics violations that played out on the show. In doing so, Carter hopes to show you how to keep your professional life from imitating art.
In this program, the presenter will use short (30-60 second) video clips from the show to discuss precise rules violated and what the TV lawyer should have done to avoid the ethical violation. And while these examples will provide for a more engaging experience for the lawyer attendee, they will also serve as a reminder that our clients have viewed these same programs, giving them an unrealistic view of the role of an attorney and the tactics available to that attorney in the furtherance of the client’s cause.

Finally, lawyers will be reminded to manage client expectations by having candid conversations detailing just what the lawyer can (and more importantly, cannot) do during the course of the representation.
This program is eligible for 1 hour of Ethics in OR.
