NOT THE FRUIT, IT'S THE ROOT: GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF OUR ETHICAL ILLS
In this unique legal ethics seminar, acclaimed legal humorist Sean Carter goes beyond the do’s and don’ts of the Rules of Professional Conduct to get to the heart of the matter — the common mindsets that result in ethical violations in the first place. Employing the witty one-liners and poignant stories that have made him a favorite presenter at bar events across the country, Mr. Carter demonstrates the root causes of our ethical ills. Furthermore, he will provide tips and insights on how to heal ourselves from these mindsets so that the ethical canons become guide posts and not obstacles in our drive to become successful lawyers.

THE ETHYS AWARDS: 2014 EDITION
Each year, Hollywood celebrates the best performances in motion pictures at the Oscars. Well, this year, we will celebrate the worst ethics violations in the legal profession at the Ethys. The festivities will be hosted by legal humorist Sean Carter, who will announce this year's winners of the coveted Ethy for Best Original Excuse, Least Competent in a Legal Representation, Most Over-Animated Courtroom Outburst, a special Lifetime Achievement Award and so much more. In the process of recapping some of the most egregious instances of unethical behavior, Mr. Carter will demonstrate how the rest of us can avoid more common ethical violations.
Mega Meeting 2013 Attendee Feedback:
"He was very informative and effective in his presentation of the materials. It was great that he added humor because his examples were very applicable. He did not try to cram too much information in. The hour flew by! Thank you for getting him to speak. He was the best ethics speaker I ever heard. It was great that he could speak and be applicable to such a wide variety of attorneys."
"I can't remember a better Ethics presentation."
"Mr. Carter's presentation was outstanding! Especially given the nature of the subject matter. It was extremely practical and relevant to each attorney regardless of the attorney's area of practice."
