A well-known legal aphorism states that while a good lawyer knows the law, a great lawyer knows the judge. Kidding aside, in order to be successful, a litigator must routinely have positive interactions with judges. 

This course will explore ways lawyers can improve their interactions with judges without running afoul of legal and ethical rules that limit the ways that lawyers and judges can interact with one another. Among the topics that will be discussed are MCLE classes and bar receptions, social media, courtroom advocacy and social hospitality.

Learning Objectives:

Understand the legal and ethical rules that govern judges’ interactions with lawyers both on and off the bench.

Understand the legal and ethical rules that govern lawyers’ interactions with judges both inside and outside the courtroom.

Review examples of appropriate and inappropriate interactions between lawyers and judges.

Examine strategies for successful advocacy.

ABA Rules to be covered - Model Rules of Professional Conduct: 1.6, 3.3, 3.6, 8.2

Model Code of Judicial Conduct - Canon 1, Rule 2.9, Rule 3.7, Rule 3.13, Rule 4.4
