Law Club Ethics Review CLE
The Law Club has wrapped up another outstanding Ethics Revue CLE, putting on two shows in Denver and one in Boulder. The Ethics Revue is unlike any other ethics program—it’s written and performed by members of the famous (or infamous) Law Club and CBA Ethics Committee! In this annual musical extravaganza, the attorneys act, dance, and sing parodies of well-known songs, incorporating valuable ethics lessons into each performance.
With “The Law Club Horror Show” as the theme, this year’s event featured creative twists on old and new songs alike, including “Let’s Do The Law Club Again,” “Biller,” “Day-O,” “Don’t Fear the Reefer,” and “Whom You Gonna Call (Office of the ARC).” The Ethics Panel was on hand to interpret and teach ethics rules. Honorable Ray Satter served as moderator, and panelists included Gregory G. Sapakof, Podoll & Podoll, P.C.; Cat Shea, Office of Attorney Regulation; and Kate Strauss, Overturf McGath & Hull, P.C.
