Sponsored by the LSBA Committee on the Profession, this course focuses on the practical aspects of professionalism and ethics. Students will watch short vignettes of professional and ethical dilemmas many new attorneys face. After each short presentation, experienced practitioners and judges will guide the discussion on how to best handle difficult situations. Many attorneys in the first five years of practice may not know how to handle certain situations. Through mentoring and experienced attorneys, this class will help you transition into practice. Come learn how to prevent ethical dilemmas and understand professionalism issues before such occur in real life.  There will also be a short presentation at the end of the discourse concerning the issues and solutions of law student debt.
