On April 8, 1994 Kent Merker of the Atlanta Braves is pitching a no hitter in the ninth inning and it is a tense time for the pitcher. Although it was a tense time for the pitcher, he knew that the unwritten rules of baseball would prevent any ninth inning batter from bunting the ball and ruining his chance to make baseball history. Unfortunately, the same sense of professionalism and civility are oftentimes lacking within the legal community, even though these traits are the mainstays of our profession and the foundation upon which lawyers practice law. Don’t miss this interactive presentation in which our speaker, Philip Bogdanoff, uses the unwritten rules of professionalism in baseball, football, basketball, and other sports to discuss whether these same concepts of professionalism can apply to the legal profession. Attendees will watch film clips of baseball, football, basketball and soccer while we discuss professionalism in sports and the legal profession. Learn how to deal with difficult attorneys and how to improve professionalism in our daily practice of law with this entertaining online discussion.
The speaker, Philip Bogdanoff is a nationally recognized continuing legal education speaker and has done presentations for over 50 bar associations and prosecutor organizations across the country. His presentations have been described as entertaining, engaging, useful and informative. He served as senior assistant prosecutor in the Summit County, Ohio Prosecutor’s Office for more than 27 years and still does work as a special prosecutor.
