In this unique legal ethics webinar, humorist Sean Carter will go beyond the simple “dos” and “don’ts” of rules and get to the root of the matter -- the mindsets that cause lawyers to commit ethics violations in the first place. In doing so, he will cover the Seven Deadly Sins of legal ethics:

  1. Lust (Conflicts of interest – Rules 1.7-1.9)
  2. Gluttony (Over-commitment – Rule 1.3)
  3. Greed (Fees and Trust account violations – Rules 1.5 & 1.15)
  4. Sloth (Incompetence and Lack of diligence – Rules 1.1 & 1.3)
  5. Wrath (Incivility – Rules 3.4, 3.5, 4.3 & 4.4)
  6. Envy (Incompetence – Rule 1.1)
  7. Pride (Breaches of confidentiality and Failure to communicate – Rules 1.6 & 1.4)
