As lawyers, we are fond of looking for the “black letter law,” the well-settled, undisputed and clearly articulated rule of decision for application to the facts of our case. So often, however, there simply is no such rule, no clearly delineated guidepost for us to follow or to urge upon a Court as outcome determinative. Rather, the law is mostly neither black nor white, but varying shades of gray, offering some succor and at least partial support to both sides of a dispute. The resolution of the matter thus generally turns upon issues of policy and the vigorous practice of the art of persuasion.
Ethical issues for lawyers may be similarly described, at least structurally. That is, every state proscribes and declares its “black letter” rules to inform and guide the practitioner in the conduct of office, but no matter how carefully articulated, the rules invariably leave gaps in their midst and spaces between themselves: areas which implicate what we might call “white letter” ethics. The difference is this: the absence of clearly defined rules of law energizes the substantive aspects of practice, and engages the fullness of our skills, to the end that a court may rule on our client’s cause. But an ethical issue which falls into the cracks between the rules of professional conduct affects us, personally and directly, and can pose exquisitely poignant and problematic scenarios for the practitioner who, in default of clearly defined ethical norms, must ask herself hard questions about what shall I do? And she may often be compelled to answer those questions alone, at her professional peril, with nothing but her own experience, judgment and personal moral code to guide the outcome.
The purpose of this program is broadly to begin the exploration of those “white” spaces; the interstices between the rules, generally codified in most states as the “Rules of Professional Conduct,” or “RPC’s.” What the exploration of that apparently “blank” space will reveal is that it is not empty at all, but a roiling sea of clashing values, where tidally conflicting ethical principles can and do crash into one another, each having a legitimate claim to our attention and action. How we choose, then, is as often as important as what we choose. Let the exploration begin...
JEFFREY D. ULLMAN has more than thirty-eight years of concentrated experience handling all facets of complex litigation in the state and federal courts. He has earned a very strong reputation for integrity and legal ability among his colleagues and adversaries alike. He is and has been “AV” rated by Martindale Hubbel for more than twenty-five years, and is identified by that organization as “Preeminent,” the highest possible third party peer reviewed recognition of legal acumen and ethical standards available in the legal profession. He has appeared as trial and appellate counsel for a diverse clientele in a wide variety of cases covering the broad spectrum of civil and criminal litigation. His principal areas of expertise include commercial litigation, intellectual property disputes, criminal defense and appeals.

Having gained substantial trial and appellate experience principally at small New York firms specializing in criminal defense and complex commercial litigations, Jeff founded the law firm which bears his name, ULLMAN, FURHMAN & PLATT, P.C., together with Arthur Furhman and Gary Platt in 1992. The firm, which represents clients in connection with a broad range of legal matters, celebrated its 20th year of practice and service to its clients at its original Morristown, New Jersey office location, in January, 2012.
Mr. Ullman graduated cum laude from Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, in 1970, with a degree in Philosophy, and, following a year of graduate study in that field at the University of Rochester, obtained his law degree from the New York University School of Law in 1974. Mr. Ullman served as an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Philosophy at Rutgers University for the 1992-1993 academic year, teaching courses in Social Justice and Philosophical Issues in Punishment and Human Rights.
Jeffrey Ullman is a member of the bars of the States of New York and New Jersey, and is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the District of New Jersey, the United States Courts of Appeal for the Second, Third and Fourth Circuits and the United States Supreme Court.

Mr. Ullman's course was the best I've seen so far. His energy and use of real cases (=stories) made this an excellent presentation. The issue of the "grey area" where our ethical responsibilities are unclear is important for us all. I hope to see more from him!
I usually just click 4s for our presenters, but this was truly a fascinating and enjoyable hour.

Excellent presentation. It reminded me of why I am not a litigator or negotiator. It's not in my nature to hide the ball, so to speak. I admire those attorneys who are able to negotiate these very difficult waters.

Brilliant (with no shades of grey).
I found Mr. Ullman's presentation to be extremely engaging. Kudos!
Truly enjoyed the presentation. Abraham Lincoln is always good for the soul of any lawyer.
Interesting premise - how does a lawyer navigate between conflicting Rules, blurred lines is applicable in many legal contexts. Focus on professional conduct is excellently applied here. The compass of honesty as a foundational tool in these matters is well presented.
Good on you for being animated about your topic -more instructors should be
Excellent speaker, made an often boring topic compelling.

This was an excellent presentation. i have been an attorney for 36 years and this one of the best ethics presentations i can recall! Well done!!!!
Really enjoyed the presenter!!
Very polished presentation by a very effective speaker.
finally, someone who was fun to watch and easy to listen to.

Very interesting viewpoint- comparing black letter law to the "white space." I liked it.
He's a very good presenter.
The best ethics program I've attended. Cases used to illustrate the ethical lessons kept me engaged.
Most entertaining ethics class I've had in a long time
One of the best presentations I have ever encountered. I wish I knew Ullman as a friend.
Greatly enjoyed the lecturer's energy and sincerity in presenting thought-provoking questions.

A fantastically-engaging and clearly-passionate presenter.
Great speaker, important topic
Mr. Ullman was one of the most engaging speakers I have ever heard.
A superior ethics presentation. I very much appreciated the speaker's willingness to address directly the concepts of right and wrong, and of conscience within the practice of law. Well presented, and extremely thought provoking.
Thank you very much.
Excellent. What a great speaker!
Compliments to the presenter - this was an exceptional CLE.
Such a knowledgeable, dynamic speaker. An excellent presentation.
What an incredible presentation! I found it challenging, thought-provoking, demanding, and (ultimately) uplifting. The speaker was wise, and his oratory impressive. The presentation's title did not serve to indicate the topic, and brilliance, of his lessons. Bravo!
Best video I've seen so far. Excellent.
Good distinctions through recent cases.
truly excellent, and in fact inspirational - well done!
This was a great course, and a great speaker. You will come away with a real appreciation for the limits of ethics rules.
The delivery of an evangelist. I enjoyed it.
excellent presentation and clear description of operative principles in differing underlying fact patterns that are nevertheless very close and consequently can cause confusion regarding what principles should apply. Very very good indeed. I learned -- usually difficult from ethics courses. But this one is clear as is its message.
Excellent and interesting instructor
One of the best programs I've seen on Lawline. Mr. Ullman's presentation was delivered with the energy, precision and poise of the seasoned advocate. His performance should be the standard by which others are measured.
very well presented
Excellent, everyone should watch
Really a nice job!
Excellent course. The faculty was terrific. Very good discussion of obligtion of zealous representation and obligations to the court

Very good course.
This speaker is very engaging and one of the best I've ever heard with regard to ethics-related topics.
Jeffrey is a terrific speaker. I truly enjoy listening to his lectures.
Mr. Ullman is the best of the best Lawline lecturers.
Bravo! An excellent presentation in an area which often is lackluster. Presenter brought a clear presentation of a lawyer's continuing dilemma.
The speaker was excellent and very engaging
Fantastic presentation, I applaud Mr. Ullman for attacking the "white policy space" that too few touch upon for teaching moments. It is those areas of the law that we really must navigate for the "black letter law" are akin to navigation markers in the sea of law. Yet in the end, it is the lawyer that must navigate by those markers and into the realm of open water space.
One of the best webinars that I have ever viewed. The speaker was excellent, and most importantly, inspiring, even to a lawyer who is entering his 40th year of practice, like I am.
Best program on Lawline that I've seen.
Excellent ethics lecture. Black and White but still exist the shades of grey at times. No court is perfect and no system is flawless. However, the system and ethics should always strive towards perfection.
Speaker was excellent !
Very engaging lecturer.
Extraordinary presentation. Would actually like break bread with the speaker!
Presenter was fantastic.
I have watched many videos and been to many programs. This presenter was by far the best I have ever seen. Thank you for putting together such a good program.
excellent presentation in all respects
One of the very best ethics presentations I've attended. Thank you!
Outstanding! Excellent presentation.
A different take and a good one. Rightly distinguishes ethics from competence and the case examples were excellent illustrations of the white (gray) areas of ethics. Erring on the side of good behavior sounds like the better alternative-as recommended.
Very very good.
Great passion and belief!
I would watch more of his presentations.
Excellent presentation and presenter. Thank you.
I thought the presenter was a very good orator who presented an engaging cle. Thank you.
A very thoughtful presentation of the conflict between zealous advocacy and duty to the tribunal.

Excellent presentation, although limited examples geared for trial lawyers. Exhortation at the end was a useful reminder
The ethics courses in this bundle are uniformly the best - taught with intelligence and passion.
This program is one of the best that I ever encountered. Mr. Ullman passionately and effectively explained the real crux of ethics considerations, gave good guidance to navigate the issues, and challenged the audience to be genuinely ethical.
What a fine, interesting speaker! Mr. Ullman's presentation was excellent.
This was without a doubt the best CLE course I have taken in years. The content and presentation was head and shoulders above the norm. Very well done!
This presenter is excellent.
Jeffrey Ullman was the best presenter, and best ethics presenter, I have ever encountered. Prosecutors have a duty (in all jurisdictions) to seek justice and be candid with the court. Criminal defense attorneys should be required to listen to his session.
Phenomenal presentation and message --eloquent and bottom-line at the same time. Speaker makes one remember when "Ethics" was an integral part of our profession and not just a CLE requirement.
The most interesting lecturer yet.
Mr. Ullman is a great and engaging speaker!
Very knowledgeable speaker, and passionate about the topic.
Would love to have Jeffrey Ullman present on more topics!
This was the best legal ethics presentation I've heard by far!
Wow. Absolutely fantastic presentation, terrific content, terrific speaker!
One of best presentations I have seen with regard to ethics. A very forceful, well informed, persuasive speaker.
Jeffrey Ullman made a wonderful, inspirational ethics presentation with many excellent examples of a lawyer's obligation to make disclosures from a collateral matter in one he's then dealing with.
I was able to take the slides and print them directly. Very nice feature.
Excellent, thought provoking. Keep this speaker!
An excellent presentation!
Mr. Ullmann has captured the essence of being a lawyer and scholar. His cases are most interesting and stimulate the mind. As both lawyer and Rabbi, i found his lectures on ethics and lawyering very stimulating and meaningful.
Best presenter on this packet
The best presentation I have seen or heard about "professional responsibility. " It captured my attention. Thanks.
Outstanding! I'm 73 and this is one of the best lectures on ethics I have ever heard!

Very informative and entertaining lecture
Great...really good speaker.

A vary excellent lecture !
I would encourage EVERY person who practices law to see this! It's time to understand that honesty is key to how you address the practice of law. My recent encounters with attorneys have not displayed this.
