Who Should Order Homestudy

All attorneys in Washington needing Ethics credits

Why Order

In a new twist on ethics presentations, we will discuss a number of lawyer jokes. These jokes are all grounded in patterns of behavior persistent enough to have given rise to unkind jokes. The jokes will be a humorous spring board to a serious discussion of underlying ethical rules and actual disciplinary cases. These jokes, ethical rules and disciplinary cases span all areas of the practice of law. ~ Program Chair: Peter L. Buck, Esq.
