I’ll Take Legal Ethics for $400, Alex
You might consider yourself an ethical lawyer – and we hope you do – but how well do you really know our state’s ethics rules? Printed out on 8.5x11” sheets of paper, the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct (including comments) run 122 pages. Few, if any, Texas attorneys will remember everything that’s tucked into the 50 sometimes-lengthy rules and their accompanying comments. So, maybe the real question is: how much do you not know?
One way to find out is to test your knowledge using our Ethics Question of the Month, featured in the Texas Bar Journal. Every month since September 2018, TCLE provides a scenario that raises one or more ethical issues and provides several possible solutions. Read them regularly and you’ll stay ahead of many of your peers, ethics-wise.
Additionally, if you’ve missed any EQMs, you can find all of them here on our website. And a bonus: testing your knowledge this way can be counted toward the one hour of ethics self-study CLE credit you can claim each year.
