We all know that CLE programs are boring and a chore to watch. But we’re breaking the rules – a CLE program that’s intentionally funny and (gasp) entertaining, yet somehow still informative. Actor, writer, producer and recovering lawyer, Mark Wooster, presents a humorous take on what lawyers should – and should not – do in the service of their clients. Using clips from some famous films and television shows about lawyers as well as some real-world examples of lawyers and judges gone “rogue,” Mark will illustrate the ethics rules that apply to lawyers who get caught in unusual and embarrassing situations. Reserve your seat today and we’ll waive the two-drink minimum!
