Legal Ethics


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. In the latest installment of this popular series, Zach McGee steps into the ring with Hulk Hogan and Gawker for a bruising send-up of their lawsuit that includes a sneak peek at the sex tape that started it all . . . . This program also exposes – pardon the pun – the Silicon Valley billionaire who was funding Hulk Hogan’s lawsuit and discusses some of the ethics issues lawyers can face in cases where someone other than the plaintiff is paying the legal bills. Reserve your seat today and we’ll waive the two-drink minimum!
