Ethics and Legal Writing


Created on December 17, 2012


An area of increasing concern for litigators is the possibility of being disciplined not by state bar authorities, but by judges in the form of sanctions and public ridicule.  This course will explore four areas within the broader topic of legal ethics and writing in which judges have taken the leading role in enforcing ethical norms.

Learning Objectives:

I.   Understand court-awarded sanctions for frivolous legal writing;

II.  Learn about the duty to cite adverse authority;
