All The Queen's Horses - The Defrauding of Dixon - Breach of Attorney and Accountant Ethics

Program Materials

Date and Time: September 23, 2020 / 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Clifford Scott-Rudnick

Topic: Clifford Scott-Rudnick will moderate the program where attendees will watch a documentary, All The Queen's Horses (November, 2017), and stop at each point the attorneys, accountants, and elected officials are faced with an ethical dilemma under the ABA Model Rules and the Illinois Attorney Rules of Professional conduct, as well as Illinois Accountant and CPA Codes of Conduct. We will discuss and analyze several issues raised by the presenter and the attendees. Attendees will try to determine the similarities and differences of the ethical obligations of both professions,  especially if the individual is dually licensed by both professions.


Learning Objectives:

  • To discuss not crossing the line on many ABA & IARDC Rules of Professional Responsibility.
  • To recognize the limits of approaching and crossing the line between aspirational and actual acceptable and sanctionable behavior when advising and representing clients in criminal matters.
  • To understand when an act may be unethical but still not be a violation of the IARDC and ABA Model Rules.
  • To apply accountant, attorney, and government rules to real-life and imagined scenarios and the frailty of human beings.  


Credits: Approved for 1 Credit PRMCLE - Legal Ethics
