Who likes lawyer movies? Who needs ethics MCLE?

Some lawyers just can't get enough of law practice, and love lawyer movies. Other lawyers can't stand lawyer movies. One reason lawyer movies can be so annoying is that the fictional lawyers engage in unethical behavior that wouldn't (or plainly shouldn't) ever happen in real life. Well, whether you love or hate lawyer movies, the L.A. chapter of the Association of Business Trial Lawyers has an enjoyable ethics MCLE for you on February 12:
