Roseanne CashTHE SHOW: Rosanne Cash is one of the country’s pre-eminent singer/songwriters. Her latest album, “She Remembers Everything”, was released on November 2nd. More than at any time in her career, her spirit and approach to performance these days reflects the influence of her father, the legendary country singer Johnny Cash.

Although Cash is often classified as a country artist, her music draws on many genres, including folk, pop, rock, blues, and most notably Americana. She won a Grammy Award in 1985 for "I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me" and has received 12 other Grammy nominations. She has had 11 No. 1 country hit singles, 21 Top 40 country singles, and two gold records. In 2015, she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.

THE CLE: This fun and interactive program will use hypotheticals to address Ethics topics of interest to litigators and transactional lawyers whose clients might face litigation, including:

  • Determining which state’s ethics rules applies to your case
  • Lawyers' ability to talk in public about the case and the judge
  • Aggressive and deceptive discovery tactics
  • Dealing with fact witnesses
