Who needs 190 pages on conduct rules?
The Columbus Bar LIVE ethics program features scholar, law school dean and terrific lecturer, William I. (Bill) Weston, as he debunks the cant, goes back to first principles and puts all this ethics/professionalism stuff in perspective without footnotes or caveats – just the straight skinny with his discussion of the three "C"s - conflicts, confidentiality and competence. And, if you get a laugh or two out of it, we promise not to tell the Supreme Court. Oh, by the way, Dennis Ehrie, the Director of Talbot Hall at OSU Hospital East, will be here to fill you in on what’s being done these days to help lawyers in crisis.
