Featuring Scott Peppet, Professor, University of Colorado Law School. A provocative discussion on ethics and the business of lawyering and zealous representation: is it ethical if it's legal? Topics include regulating ethics and morality, such as organ sales and prostitution, and the ethics of hourly billing, lying in negotiations and to clients.
This lecture is part of the 2013 William K. Weinstein Conversation Series of six lectures focusing on the ethical issues and related decision making models that arise in discrete industries in which lawyers practice. Each symposium provides a plenary overview of the ethical obligations and challenges facing clients as well as lawyers in the particular industry.
