Following in the tradition of its popular musical seminars that present challenging legal ethics scenarios into song, ProEthics presents the first country-western musical ethics seminar, Ethics Jamboree! While previous acclaimed CLE musical seminars have entertainingly parodied the best of classic ’60s rock (Ethics Rock!), ’70s and ’80s rock (Ethics Rock Extreme), and the great ballads of the ’30s and ’40s (Ethics Blues), Ethics Jamboree employs perhaps the best music for story-telling—especially stories full of drama, tragedy, and human frailties: country-western music. Amusing and authentic sounding parodies of songs identified with such country artists as Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Buddy Rogers, and others will plunge attendees into difficult and current dilemmas in legal ethics.
Introduced by the program’s guitarist/country vocalist who sings (to the chorus of the country classic, “Heartaches by the Number,” the 3-hour program proceeds with toe-tapping songs that raise multiple ethics problems and involve important new cases and bar ethics opinions. Professional ethicist and lawyer Jack Marshall then leads the audience through an interactive analysis of them—all that is stimulating, fast-moving, and educational. And at the end, like all ProEthics musical CLE seminars, a sing-along to send attendees home humming, enlightened, and with 3 more Ethics credits.
