How Bad Do You Want to Be Good? Legal Ethics Updates 1
Upholding the ethical standards in practicing the noble profession
Legal and Judicial Ethics
This course will discuss the updates in legal ethics including some of the selected 2020 cases. The course will also walk you through the importance of upholding the ethical standards in practicing the noble profession. Being an officer of the court, you are expected to maintain the highest standard of professionalism—which is sad to say, not always the case.
The sample cases covered for the first course of this three-part series will hopefully convey the importance why it is badly needed for lawyers to be good.
Specifically, this course will:
Explain the Code of Professional Responsibility and the Four-Fold duties of a lawyer
Analyze the narrative of cases covered concerning ethics
Discuss the Supreme Court ruling in selected 2020 cases
