Lawyers and Lies

Thursday, September 14, 2017, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Most of us are taught that being honest is an unquestioned virtue – yet the law doesn’t necessarily see it that way. This course will explore the legal status of “required honesty,” before diving deep into a review of the various Rules of Professional Conduct relating to honesty, and how they play out depending on the relationship between attorney-speaker and subject. Attorneys who attend this webinar can expect to learn:

  • The relationship between First Amendment-protected speech and professional speech regulation.
  • How shifting cultural values shape what we define as a lie.
  • Negotiation ethics and the difference between bargaining and lying.
