A pre-recorded video replay of the September 2016 live seminar, Ethics Cabaret: The Ethics of Your Profession Sung to the Music of Your Life.

Topics covered include:

  • Learn about tomorrow's emerging ethical challenges
  • Professional Guidelines
Nothing captures the complexities, tragedies, and exhilaration of humanity more exquisitely than great American popular music. Now the latest musical ethics seminar from lawyer/ethicist/parodist Jack Marshall employs the full range of those memorable songs — from Judy Garland to Bon Jovi to Adele — and explores current developments in the field of legal ethics and, rather than the pain and confusion of romantic relationships, the equally perplexing relationship between lawyers, their clients, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and their own consciences.

“Ethics Cabaret” is a unique legal ethics seminar that fulfills three hours of CLE ethics credits. As with ProEthics’ other popular and award-winning musical seminars — “Ethics Rock,” “Ethics Rock Extreme,” “The Sound of Ethics,” “Ethics Blues,” and “Ethics Jamboree!” — each song is a challenging hypothetical exploring multiple important and current ethics issues that every lawyer needs to understand and be prepared to deal with. This time Marshall is assisted by professional cabaret singer/actress Esther Covington, a keyboard playing chanteuse with a flair for comedy. The songs parodied span more decades and styles than ever before, as Esther’s repertoire flip from Broadway to Disco to Billy Joel to 2016 chart-toppers in a heartbeat, but all with important legal ethics issues in their lyrics, evoking recent developments and important legal ethics opinions.
