Overview

Grab your tie-dyed shirt and listen to several classic tunes from The Beatles, as we use the lyrics of those songs to introduce memorable lessons about ethics and professionalism for lawyers.  John, Paul, George, and Ringo provide the inspiration for important and practical discussion on the following topics:

  • Little-known aspects of the duty of confidentiality
  • The often-overlooked dictates of Rule 1.8 and Rule 2.1
  • The multiple roles of a lawyer
  • Special ethical obligations toward clients and adverse litigants who are aged
  • Technological competence
  • Lawyer depression & mental illness
