  4. Fill out the short Zoom registration sheet and click on “Register” to complete

Important Information Regarding Registration

  1. Do not wait until 2 minutes before the webinar to register with Zoom if possible, as you cannot log in until you get the email from Zoom and while email is usually instantaneous, we all know that isn’t always the case.
  2. You must be watching the webinar in order to get credit.  Most states accredit webinars differently than other formats and in order to get webinar credit, you must be watching, not just listening using the audio only link.
  3. There will be poll questions every hour, as many states require them.  If you don’t answer the poll question, we can’t award credit for that hour.  The poll questions are NOT obscure, as Joel always announces them before he runs them, and he reads them out loud.  If your state requires you answer them, please don’t miss them.  Please note that you will not be able to answer poll questions if you are using an audio only link, which is another reason you need to be watching the video presentation

 

How to Get Credit for the Webinar

  1. All webinar certificates are done by hand, so you will not get them when the webinar is over.  We have to cross reference your log in and log out times and your poll questions to figure out how much credit you earned.
  2. You will receive your certificate of attendance within a week of the webinar and it will be sent to the email address you used when you registered for the webinar.
  3. Comedian of Law will report to all states that are provider report states.  If your state is a self-reporting state, we will not (like FL, IA or MO for example).  Hours are usually reported right before certificates of attendance are sent, but the email you receive will explain.

Course Description

This class is a comprehensive de-briefing of the law. Starting with ethics, we review the crazy predicaments some ethically-challenged attorneys have found themselves. You will have to decide based on the severity of the facts and the relevant model rule, would you take a deal for that violation. While Hollywood might not be setting the finest examples when it comes to actual morals and ethics, they do a good job of exhibiting legal ethics. We will explore the Model Rules through the eyes of Hollywood. From Hollywood, it’s not a long journey to our legal rock stars – the Nine! The Supreme Court, aka, the Real League of Justice, has been busy exerting their super hero legal powers. We will review recent landmark Supreme Court case. For example, Masterpiece Cakeshop and stale while wedding cake: discrimination or a valid excuse to skip your cousin’s wedding? Finally, we will take a countdown of the Top 10 Wacky cases. You might be surprised what you will learn about legal strategy from these headline cases.
