The Super Bowl CLE – Why Attorneys Get Penalized: Professionalism in Football and the Legal Profession
Don’t miss this interactive program in which Philip Bogdanoff discusses how rules of professionalism in football and other sports are based upon respect for the game and opposing players. Unfortunately, the legal community and courts have noted a lack of professionalism and civility among attorneys – even though these traits are the mainstays of our profession and the foundations upon which lawyers practice law. This entertaining presentation explores the unwritten rules of professionalism in various sports, including football, golf, hockey, baseball, basketball, and woman’s soccer, and discusses how these expectations relate to the legal profession by watching film clips of football and other sports to decide whether these same concepts of professionalism can apply in the legal profession. Learn how to deal with difficult attorneys, how to improve professionalism in our daily practice of law, and much more.
