NYWBA Annual Membership Meeting, Elections and Ethics CLE Program


April 26, 2018 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

NYWBA Annual Membership Meeting,
Elections and Ethics CLE Program
Please join us at the Annual Meeting.

Mingle with members, get updates on the Association and vote on the NYWBA and WBASNY Officers, Directors and Delegates for next year. This is one of the highlights of our year, and we hope that you will join in the festivities!

Following the Annual Meeting, a panel of distinguished ethics attorneys will present an ethics CLE program.

 Lights! Camera! Ethics!
Why your favorite movie lawyers may need an ethics lawyer!

 A great actress once said “Everything I learned, I learned from the movies.”  Fortunately she was not a lawyer.  Some of our favorite and unforgettable movie characters over the years have been lawyers.  These characters have made us laugh, cry, and inspired us to do great things.  But sometimes what we learn from the big screen may not fly in the real-world where the Rules of Professional Conduct govern lawyers’ conduct.  Join us for a fun-filled evening where we will explore some of the ethics issues that arise in lawyer movies including the duties of candor, competence, and the unauthorized practice of law.  Ethics credits and popcorn to be provided
