Gain a better understanding of the recurring ethical issues facing attorneys
by exploring the pages of literature!
Literature is a unique and entertaining way to examine the ethical conundrums of the law by forcing us to step away from the formalities of the profession and gain a better understanding of the human condition. Retired Minnesota Judge, Timothy J. Baland, returns to the ISBA to conduct this distinct Master Series seminar in which he uses literature to explore a number of ethical and philosophical issues, including:
Program registrants will be given the required short stories and asked to read them prior to the program. During the program, Judge Baland will pose though-provoking questions from hypothetical scenarios and allow participants to share their experiences and ideas on the “themes” found throughout the required reading.
Attendees may register for the morning session, afternoon session, or both; however, due to the interactive nature of this program, registration will be limited to 30 participants for each session.
