Not your same old ethics
Most ethics courses concentrate on the “thou shall” and “thou shall not” aspects of practicing law and are driven by the Rules of Professional Conduct. Why not try a different slant, a philosophical slant, for this required topic and still meet all the requirements for ethics, professionalism, and substance abuse?
Former Cincinnati news anchorman Kyle A. Hill and Diane S. Hill of Hill Media Relations will conduct “The Elephant in the Courtroom: Ethical Theory and the Rules of Professional Conduct” on Monday, December 17 from 12:30 p.m. 4:45 p.m. for 4.25 hours of CLE credit, including 1.0 ethics, 1.0 professionalism, and 0.5 substance abuse credit. Note the early starting time of 12:30 for this offering.
This course approaches ethical behavior from a different perspective by examining a foundation for ethical behavior and providing workable steps for establishing ethical relationships in the practice of law. Focus includes a personal perspective on ethics; moral development (Piaget and Kohlberg); utilitarianism (Bentham and Mill); the principal of veracity (Bok); the categorical imperative (Kant); and accountability (Michael Josephson’s 10 universal, timeless values.) Substance abuse instruction will be provided by Stephanie Krzarnich of the Ohio Lawyer’s Assistance Program.
