Featured Seminar



July 23, 2015 (1:30-4:45pm)
The "newly discovered" prequel to To Kill a Mockingbird set off a debate about diminished capacity and the publication of the first of Harper Lee's novels. This seminar will discuss not only the professional conduct lessons taught to us by To Kill a Mockingbird, but will also discuss how the issues of diminished capacity color the ability of attorneys to effectively and ethically counsel their clients. The presentation will be framed by several live-acted vignettes from Mockingbird.
