Emotional Intelligence and Ethics - Is There a Connection?  
(1.0 Mental Health & Substance Abuse Professional Responsibility Credit)
Does a low emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) put lawyers at higher risk for malpractice liability and ethical violations?  Lawyers test at low emotional intelligence compared to the general population and other professions. They are particularly low in a critical component of emotional intelligence: emotional perception, or awareness of their own and others’ emotions.  So what is emotional intelligence and how does it relate to the ethical practice of law?  Are there concrete and practical ways lawyers can enhance their EQ?
Dr. David Shor, Northwestern University, Evanston

Tales from the Tube
(1.0 Professional Responsibility)
We can always learn from the mistakes of others. In this session, the others just happen to be our favorite television lawyers. Join us in an interactive, entertaining, and educational look at a variety of timely ethics issues.
Mary K. Foster, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, Chicago

Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow: The Lawyer as Whistleblower
(1.0 Professional Responsibility)
Whistleblowing is making the news on an almost daily basis. When lawyers feel the need to "blow the whistle", what are the ethical concerns? We'll explore the following issues: When corporate counsel or a government lawyer discovers illegal or fraudulent counsel, what should they do? How can lawyers abide by their ethical duties of loyalty and confidentiality and to report wrongdoings? Can lawyers receive SEC or FCA bounties or awards? Is there any recourse if the lawyer faces retaliation?
Mary K. Foster, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, Chicago

Cautionary Tales from the Front: Ethics, Technology and Social Media in Litigation
(1.0 Professional Responsibility)
We'll look beyond the usual "be careful when you use Facebook" programs and look at current ethical concerns for litigators when using social media and technology. Cyber-stalking, internet research, spying, spoliation, and the use of stolen or hacked materials are among the many topics we will discuss.
