Approved for 1 CLE ethics credit
Fictional, fictionalized, and real-life lawyers permeate American popular culture. Movies, television, radio, books, magazines, comic strips, editorial cartoons, popular music, and the cybersphere unquestionably affect how the public perceives lawyers and the legal system, as well as how lawyers perceive themselves and the roles they play in the legal system. This program will utilize multimedia clips from both recent and classic movie and television depictions of lawyers at work in a variety of settings to promote what should be a lively discussion among the panelists and the audience about legal ethics, professionalism, lawyering skills, and – to a lesser degree, subject matter competence.
