The Ethical Challenge: Theory vs. Practice


Learning ethics in law school is important as it prepares your brain for critical thinking. But what happens in real life, when…
… the unethical person in question is your boss or the judge in charge of your case?
… your head tells you one thing but your heart tells you another?

Attorneys often wrestle with the black and white of right and wrong in an all too grey world. Join us for a discussion of how well the theory behind legal ethics holds up to the actual practice of law and walk away with some tips of how to handle your own ethical conundrums.
