    WEBINAR
    This program will now be offered as a live webinar and will count as live CLE credit in Kansas.

    (8 Hour CLE with 4 Hours of Ethics)

    Friday, May 22

    8:20 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

    Presented by Joel Oster, Comedian of Law LLC


    This class is a comprehensive de-briefing of the law.  Starting with ethics, we review the crazy predicaments some ethically-challenged attorneys have found themselves.  You will have to decide based on the severity of the facts and the relevant model rule, would you take a deal for that violation.  While Hollywood might not be setting the finest examples when it comes to actual morals and ethics, they do a good job of exhibiting legal ethics.  We will explore the Model Rules through the eyes of Hollywood.  From Hollywood, it’s not a long journey to our legal rock stars – the Nine! The Supreme Court, aka, the Real League of Justice, has been busy exerting their super hero legal powers.  We will review recent landmark Supreme Court case.  For example, Masterpiece Cakeshop and stale while wedding cake: discrimination or a valid excuse to skip your cousin’s wedding?  Finally, we will take a countdown of the Top 10 Wacky cases.  You might be surprised what you will learn about legal strategy from these headline cases.

    8:20 a.m. - Introduction
