Welcome to Legal Ethics in Motion

‘Tis a far better thing to ponder a hypothetical, than disbarment. – Daniela Torrealba

Welcome to Legal Ethics in Motion, the blog of the Professional Responsibility and Ethics Program (PREP) at the University of Miami School of Law. PREP develops and presents continuing legal education (CLE) ethics training for the legal community. We explore “hot-topic” ethics and professionalism issues, draft academic materials and present on-site, customized ethics programs to bar associations, nonprofit legal services organizations, government agencies, law firms and corporations.

In creating Legal Ethics in Motion, our purpose is to provide student commentary on ethical issues affecting the legal community in the digital age. We will explore such topics as: social media, technology, and other breaking legal developments.

We asked students to describe the  PREP experience:

PREP is a practical, hands-on law school course that is unlike anything else offered here.”  – Candice Lazar

“Being part of PREP, and helping attorneys and judges keep up with the evolving landscape makes me feel like I’m part of something bigger than myself.” – James Lechter

PREP is a program composed of law students dedicated to mastering the Rules of Professional Conduct and facilitating discussion among attorneys about the importance of fostering a professional and ethical environment in the legal field.” – Matan Scheier
