Description

Earn Pennsylvania CLE and Laugh!

(Used code "Discount20" for 20% off tickets at checkout)

Accredited for 6 hours of live CLE credit with the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board, including 3 hours of ethics.

Experienced constitutional litigator and national speaker to attorneys and non-attorneys alike, Joel Oster, presents "De-Briefing the Law".

As a public speaker, he has collected many stories that illuminate the funnier side of the law. He adheres to the admonition of John Cleese, of Monty Python fame, that "He who laughs most, learns best!" This class will include:

  • Deal or No Deal: Ethics on Trial - After learning the predicament of certain attorneys, you must decide if you will take a deal or take your chances at trial
  • Supreme Court Review - These nine justices are our legal super heroes. And their holdings are revered throughout the land. Faster than a congressional amendment, more powerful than an executive act, able to leap tall precedents with a single bound, it's the Nine! Even with one narrow 5-4 decision, this court can radically change the scope of the American jurisprudence with a single decision. And so... it would behoove an attorney to know the recent landmark cases that are making such legal waves.
  • Top 10 Wacky Cases - This class explores the law behind the headlines. Is spilling coffee the equivalent of winning the litigation lottery? Since the sitcom Seinfeld can be about nothing, must a lawsuit against Jerry Seinfeld be about something? This class, for the general practitioner and any lawyer with a Facebook account, examines the law behind the laughs. Because who knows, maybe one day you too may spill a hot beverge and want to know your rights!
