I'm all ethical now and stuff

I spent most of my day today at a DC Bar ethics course. Well, the official title of the course is DC Bar Mandatory Course. That probably tells you how much I wanted to be there...

Once you are admitted to the DC Bar, you have 12 months to complete the course. I was sworn in in February, so of course I waited until the eleventh hour (eleventh month?) to do the course. There were over 400 participants today. I wonder how many of them had waited to the last minute like me!

Here are the pluses and minuses of the course:

Plus: They fed us breakfast, lunch, and snack.
Minus: The course cost $180, so that wasn't exactly free food.
Plus: My firm paid for me to attend the course, so it kind of WAS free food for me.
Minus: It was a snoozer.
Plus: I also got CLE credit for Louisiana.
Minus: It was boring.
Plus: ummmmm...
Minus: It was boring.
Minus: It was boring.
Minus: It was boring.

Back to work tomorrow!

don't suppose they'd let you get away with knitting through the course?
CLE points are always a bonus though

It is probably a good idea to let the system corrupt you for 11 months THEN take the ethics class so you can get back to the side of justice *laugh*

Was the free food good?

True, it was really boring, but now we can trust you.

Free food is good and if they paid well maybe it is? At least it's over with!

Paisley, I bet I could've gotten away with that - there were that many people there!

Molly, yes, the food was surprisingly good!

Rhea, yes, after a 6 hour course, I am now completely trustworthy.

And Mrs. M, true!
