Competence, Conflicts & Ethics: A CLE in Story

“[S]tories about the law (both fictional and real) allow us to visit the psychological and moral realms of legal actors both before and after they make decisions or take actions.” (Carrie Menkel-Medow, Telling Stories in School: Use Case Studies and Stories to Teach legal Ethics, 69 Fordham L. Rev. 787-816 (2000).)

In this inventive CLE, professional actors perform a reading of an original story about attorneys. The characters face legal and ethical questions that are relevant to an attorney’s practice. Afterwards, lawyers will analyze the story and the legal and ethical issues it presents.

In this course, we meet Marshall Andrews, who is corporate counsel to the entity Betawaze and its subsidiaries. Marshall suffers from drug and alcohol abuse, a problem that challenges his duty of competence. And while investigating the company’s possible exposure from an employee selling Opioids, Marshall becomes entangled in a web of conflicts that undermine his license to practice law.

Paul Gruwell, a partner with Ragghianti Freitas LLP, leads the panel discussion, together with Amy Neuberger, Corporate and Compliance Counsel for OneAccess MedCard, Inc., and Sage Graves, associate at Hickman Menashe. Drugs, alcohol, competence, and conflicts of interest.
