Time: 11 a.m. - Noon
Credits: 1.0 EP
The first season of the Lincoln Lawyer series was the most popular English-language Netflix show having made the Top 10 in 90 countries. Although everyone enjoyed watching the exploits of the Lincoln Lawyer, Mickey Haller, was he ethical? The goal of this program is for attorneys to review the Rules of Professional Conduct while discussing this fascinating series.

To do so, we will use film clips to examine Haller’s conduct , and determine whether he violated the following Rules of Professional Conduct:
• Rule 1.1 - Competence of Counsel,
• Rule 1.2 - Allocation of Authority Between a Client and Lawyer,
• Rule 1.6 - Confidentiality of Information, and
• Rule 3.3 - Candor Toward the Tribunal.

Attendees have described Mr. Bogdanoff’s presentations as “entertaining, engaging, informative, and helpful.”

Philip Bogdanoff, Esq., is a nationally recognized continuing legal education speaker on the topics of ethics, professionalism, and other related topics. Previously, as an attorney, he served as assistant prosecutor in the Summit County, Ohio Prosecutor’s Office for more than 25 years, beginning in 1981. Mr. Bogdanoff argued cases before the Ohio Ninth District Court of Appeals and twenty cases before the Ohio Supreme Court including six death penalty cases - before retiring as a senior assistant prosecutor.

He is the author of numerous articles on ethics, professionalism and other related legal topics and has taught the members of numerous organizations including the National Association of Legal Administrators, as well as numerous state and local Bar associations, Prosecuting Attorney's Associations, and law firms.
