As lawyers, we can learn a lot from antics of lawyer Saul Goodman – the popular character from the hit television shows Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.*  This 1.5 credit ethics CLE program uses humorous clips from Better Call Saul as a launching pad to discuss a wide range of ethics issues. Topics include:

  • Ethics in Negotiations
  • Litigation ethics
  • The duty of candor to the court
  • Attorney advertising
  • Legal fees and retainers

Be entertained and learn about ethics at the same time!

* No prior knowledge of Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul is required
