AboutAbout This Course

When dissecting consequences of exercising poor professional judgment it is important to determine where to establish drawing a line in the sand should not be broached. Examples abound from lawyer’s hiding sexual their affairs from clients; a spurned lawyer who smeared the reputation of an ex-intern, to yet another attorney who was disbarred for stealing from his client to feed his own drug habit. Additional violations of MR 8.4 (Misconduct) include sexting a vulnerable client; a former military lawyer who was disbarred for leaking Gitmo details, to foregoing seven costly mistakes in an attorney-client relationship.
