March Virtual Chapter Meeting

03/24/22 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Ethics Awareness Month

Topic: Hollywood Ethics With a Comedy Twist

Date/Time: March 24, 2022, at Noon Central

Speaker: Joel Oster, President & General Counsel, Comedian of Law, LLC

Our presentation will be on Hollywood Ethics with a comedy twist. We will discuss whether Hollywood's depiction of the legal profession is accurate or misses the mark. From My Cousin Vinny to Lincoln Lawyer; from Atticus Finch to Lieutenant Kaffee; Hollywood lawyers have a lot to teach us about the model rules of professional conduct. Using Hollywood storylines as a starting point, we will dissect the model rules of professional conduct, and then apply them to real-life cases. And as they will never disclaim in the movies, all characters appearing in this class are NOT fictional! Any resemblance to real-life lawyers, living or dead is purely intended.

This session is free to paid members. To reserve your spot and obtain the Zoom link, send an email to by Monday, March 21, 2022.
