Popular Ethics And Professionalism Program Back By Demand

Monday, November 2, 2009 - 01:00

The Colorado Bar is again offering Ethics and Professionalism: A Law License Does Not Make a True Professional - a morning of interactive legal theatre - on Friday, November 20.

The seminar will run from 8:30 a.m. until 12:05 p.m. at the CLECI Large Classroom, 1900 Grant Street in Denver.

The morning begins with a brief history of professionalism to emphasize the effect it has on your legal practice, and then a presentation of everyday scenarios in the life of a lawyer, demonstrating the difficulties all lawyers face in handling ethical and professional dilemmas. The most difficult problem areas are covered, including the interaction between lawyers, clients, and opposing counsel, bias issues, depositions, mentoring, client and counsel communication, and courtroom decorum. The program will end with a discussion about how ethics and professionalism are distinct concepts and how they are sometimes intertwined.

Among the faculty are Hon. Edward C. Moss, 17th Judicial District, Adams County; John T. Baker, John T. Baker, P.C.; and John S. Gleason, regulation counsel, Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel.
