In this unique legal ethics webinar, humorist Sean Carter** will go beyond the simple "dos" and "don'ts" of rules and get to the root of the matter -- the mindsets that cause lawyers to commit ethics violations in the first place. In doing so, he will cover the Seven Deadly Sins of legal ethics:

1. Lust (conflicts of interest -- Rules 1.7-1.9)
2. Gluttony (over-commitment -- Rule 1.3)
3. Greed (trust account violations -- Rules 1.5 & 1.15)
4. Sloth (lack of diligence -- Rules 1.1 & 1.3)
5. Wrath (incivility -- Rules 3.4, 3.5, 4.4 & 8.4)
6. Envy (incompetence -- Rule 1.1)
7. Pride (breaches of confidentiality, failure to communicate -- Rules 1.4 & 1.6)
