Information

Why Attend?

  • Learn about new and looming ethics developments from two dynamic and unorthodox lawyer-ethicists
  • Earn 3.0 hours of MCLE Ethics credit

The ethical standards for lawyers began rapidly evolving 20 years ago, and the process has only accelerated in recent years. The assumptions and conventions regarding what makes a “good lawyer” mutate without warning, and often, without adequate publicity. “Your 2020 Legal Ethics Survival Kit” will explore as many of the new and looming developments as three fast-moving and intense hours will allow, employing lively interactive hypotheticals and tales of terror about lawyers who didn’t see the new perils until it was too late.

Among the topics to be covered:

  • Technology challenges and how to keep up
  • Changes in what is “ethical” in firm organization and marketing
  • The fee-sharing trap
  • Conflicts you don’t see coming
  • Legal ethics opinions you missed, but can’t afford to ignore
  • Rules nobody reads

And more.

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance.

A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.

A Massachusetts and D.C. lawyer and professional writer and stage director, Marshall specializes in bringing the techniques of theater, comedy, and satire to the legal ethics CLE, and regularly presents jurisdiction- and practice-specific seminars to bar associations, law firms, corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies nationally and internationally.

John T. May, Jordan Coyne LLP / Fairfax

John May is Senior Counsel at Jordan Coyne LLP. He joined the firm in 1981 and became a partner in 1987. Throughout his tenure, he represented clients in the area of professional malpractice including attorneys, accountants, insurance agents, and title agents. He also represented attorneys in disciplinary matters before the D.C. Board of Professional Responsibility. His experience in this area includes service as a member, and subsequently as a chairman, of a hearing committee for the D.C.

Mr. May retired from Jordan Coyne and assumed Senior Counsel status on January 1, 2019.  He has shared the breadth of his knowledge and experience with others through continuing legal education lectures and as an Adjunct Professor for fourteen years at the American University Washington College of Law on the topic of legal ethics. Notably, he has lectured on ethics and legal malpractice for the D.C. Bar, the Virginia Bar, Georgetown University Law Center, American University Law School, and the Ethics Resource Center, among others. Mr. May spent many years as an actor and singer in local theater groups. Although many have practiced at the Supreme Court, he is one of the few attorneys who actually has performed there.
