A Case for Cinema: The Lincoln Lawyer
Join Bradley students and local attorneys for an interactive and analytical discussion of the ethical dilemmas presented in the film, “The Lincoln Lawyer.” Clifford Scott-Rudnick, Assistant Professor at The John Marshall Law School, will stop the 120-minute film at key moments and facilitate a discussion. We anticipate a lively dialogue among Bradley’s students, attorneys, and OLLI members.
Please note that there will be a short presentation and review of recent changes to the Illinois Rules of Professional Responsibility and a review of recent Supreme Court decisions on recommendations from the Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission. Clifford will also discuss some of the differences between real practice and the movie.
The Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism approved the substance of A Case for Cinema: The Lincoln Lawyer for 3.00 hours professional responsibility credit for attorneys.
