And so I found myself pondering the quote, “I listen to what you say, but I hear what you mean.” It was attributed to Agatha Christie’s famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, as played by actor David Suchet.

But it wasn’t until late last night that I came across the thought-provoker. Monday had caught up with me before I was ready to let go of Sunday.

That’s why I hadn’t yet finished reading Sunday’s NY Times Magazine and particularly Hope Reeves’ interview with Suchet, Part of Me Died With Him containing the quote. Suchet, who played Poirot in the BBC show, says Poirot made him “a better listener.”

Were it only so that we listened with Poirot’s discernment. More often’s the case that people don’t listen to what you say — and hear only what they mean. Or as the late Steven Covey perceptively proclaimed, “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”  

And so also true in the same interview was Suchet’s later declaration, “most people actually enjoy talking about themselves more than sharing with another person.”

On that note, here’s one more free continuing legal education link, which I missed last week. It comes with the usual disclaimers.

File:Falafel.JPG“What the falafel?” I rhetorically asked after two colleagues separately emailed me the past day about the State Bar of Arizona’s new CLE Institute Training Program.

Ahead of the Arizona Bar’s likely imminent approval of a new CLE provider precertification system that passes on more costs on lawyers, comes the same “friendly state bar’s” new “voluntary faculty development program.” Participants sign up for $50 apiece to attend a CLE Institute to become a “State Bar Certified CLE Presenter.” Wow!

Apparently someone had a brain infarction that Arizona lawyers were clamoring for such a credential! If I’d only known. Just tell me, though, when “voluntary” becomes “mandatory.” Meantime, my right-hand wearies from one-handed clapping.

Hushpuppies 5stack.jpgAccording to the Bar’s promotional flyer, attendees take part in a day-long “training session” in full business professional dress. They view pre-recorded video lectures and create a 10-minute video presentation for analytical discussion. On completion, they’re required to chair or take part in a SBA CLE program within 12 months of graduation.

On second thought, skip the falafel and pass me a hushpuppy! In truth, I never acquired a taste for either although I have friends who’ll drive miles for a good falafel sandwich. Don’t know about the hushpuppy. As for me — hand me a gyro.

But enough about food, frivolity and the foolhardy. So just before the Arizona Bar makes it more difficult for third-party providers to market and sell CLE, here’s more FREE CLE.

PLEASE NOTE: The in-person Phoenix, AZ CLE program worth “up to 7.0 CLE hours, including 1.0 Ethics and 1.5 Domestic Violence Plus BONUS .5 credit during lunch hour” is not technically FREE — but requires a $65 payment for materials, lunch, snacks and refreshments. All the same, quite the deal!

The usual disclaimers about content quality, jurisdictional acceptability and continued availability apply.

woman face 5A quick post on Continuing Legal Education (CLE). In the past, I’ve posted about CLEonline.com, which when you’re in a hurry; up against a deadline; and can’t find Free CLE — then almost free CLE is the next best thing. Better yet, in MCLE states such as Texas, California, Colorado and others, lawyers get full participatory CLE credits not merely self-study credit for CLEonline.com seminars.

For those that don’t always pay attention, this is an important distinction. Many jurisdictions like Arizona’s will restrict the number of self-study hours their lawyers can log toward the mandatory annual requirement. In Arizona, the limit is 5 hours of self-study out of the mandatory 15 hour requirement.

Now, I’m not a paid shill for this company or any other for that matter. And I know there are other cost-effective CLE providers out there, e.g., the low-cost bundles from outfits like, Attorney Credits. But when I’m not getting my CLE gratis, I admit to having paid for courses through CLEonline.com. But only when a particular program drew my interest and of course, when the price was right.

A few days ago, for example, I took advantage of their current Last Chance’ (50% Off) promotion and benefited from a terrific program for the non-immigration lawyer, “Immigration Basics: The Crazy World of Foreign Nationals in (and Wanting to Come to) the United States.” The 1.5 hour course was enthusiastically, wittily and informatively taught by a young immigration attorney out of Houston, TX, Anuj A. Shah. My total cost was $19.

FREE CLE.

But no post on Free CLE would be complete without providing lawyers 11 days before the fiscal year CLE deadline with at least one more FREE CLE option. This one comes courtesy of MCLE Online – Fidelity National Title.

Registration is required to access “hour long modules . . . broken up into four 15 minutes sections and certificates can be printed upon completing each hour.” The site goes on to mention “topics such as: Surveying, Title Examination, Bankruptcy and many more. Best of all, these courses are offered free of charge to any attorney that is interested.”

Once you’re registered and accessed their desktop feature, Fidelity National Title’s site also provides access to free ARDC Seminars.

As always, all my usual CLE disclaimers apply about continued availability, content quality and acceptability by your jurisdiction.

academic,dunce caps,dunces,hats,stoolsI’d meant to post about Arizona escaping the list of this year’s “Top 10 Dumbest States in America,” especially since my former home state of Nevada is an ignominious recidivist on the list.

 1) West Virginia

 2) Arkansas

 3) Mississippi

 4) Kentucky

5) Louisiana

6) Nevada

7) Alabama

8) Indiana

9) Oklahoma

10) Tennessee

And while I don’t put much stock in the ranking methodology, all the same I’m flummoxed at how Arizona dropped out. Just three years ago, Arizona sat at the pole position of America’s “Dumbest States.”

File:A-voluptuary.jpgThen again, dumb state or not some of you will think me cerebrally well-placed to live here since I was out golfing this past Saturday and Sunday when it was 100-plus outside. For some of you, this qualifies as dumb if not insane. And no matter those were days 7 and 8 on our consecutive day hit parade of triple-digit temperatures here with no relief in sight.

But this is par for June. Usually the hottest month in Satan’s nether region, it’s also just the start of our summertime ‘comfort zone’ in Arizona. You either go out into the inferno or you stay home, sort your sock drawer, and gaze at your navel.

And while I’m still planning on giving the local state bar another well-earned $3 hair cut, that post can keep. Instead, for all my friendly procrastinators waiting once again with under three weeks to spare before their annual June 30th fiscal year CLE deadline, here again is my now traditional fiscal year FREE CLE public service.

With the usual disclaimers about content quality, continued availability and jurisdictional credit-worthiness, find the following FREE CLE:

 ASU LAW CLE – PAY WHAT YOU WANT CLE

On demand Pay What You Want CLE | ASU Law Continuing Legal Education

http://cle.asucollegeoflaw.com/voters-choice-cle-survey/#sthash.hrGrQ6KL.dpbs

I have little doubt the Continuing Legal Education Program at Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law is hoping very few, if anyone, takes them up on the “$0″ option, which is part of their current offer of CLE based on a “pay what you want option.” You choose from their list of OnDemand recorded seminars and register for the program. You then “enter the amount you would like to pay. The amount you pay is unlimited and you can enter as little as $0. Once registered, you’ll receive the video access information and can follow the instructions to receive interactive CLE credit!”

Of course, these are the same folks who lawyer-glut and back-breaking student school debts or not — have nonetheless shamelessly decided to move into a $120 million law school Taj Mahal in downtown Phoenix. According to the Arizona Republic, “in documents being presented to regents, ASU said the goal is to increase law-school enrollment and degrees by 50 percent.

Meantime, the straight-faced ASU law school dean says of the Pay What You Want CLE: “Of course, we hope that most will still contribute something for the CLE credits they will earn. All proceeds will go to scholarships that will help us recruit high quality students, attract students that might otherwise not be able to afford law school, and have our new graduates enter the workforce with less debt burden.” 

Of course, we hope that most will still contribute something for the CLE credits they will earn.  All proceeds will go to scholarships that will help us recruit high quality students, attract students that might otherwise not be able to afford law school, and have our new graduates enter the workforce with less debt burden.” – See more at: http://cle.asucollegeoflaw.com/ondemand-pay-what-you-want-cle/#sthash.HZdrdunJ.dpuf

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/96/Golf_ball_5.jpg/320px-Golf_ball_5.jpgA couple of Saturdays ago, we were paired up on the golf course with a happy wise-cracking guy who turned out to be a presiding judge in another jurisdiction. I won’t mention where he was from but let’s just say, he was one happy hombre hitting white dimpled balls in the sunshine while his cold snap compadres back home were freezing theirs.

He was also a much better duffer than me which, of course is no big deal since I set the bar pretty low on the golf course. But I especially liked his bracing candor and absence of pomposity particularly when referring to his day job. His ‘hail fellow well met’ attitude was refreshing. Ah, but then again, we were basking on a sunny Arizona golf course. Who knows what he’s like back home? But at least he wasn’t like Judge Spaulding Smails!

Nonetheless giving him the benefit of the doubt, mid-round I commended the long-time jurist for having successfully inoculated himself from black robe disease — and for not asking me to kiss his ring. Hearing my good-natured razzing, he laughed and smote his Pro-V-1 down the middle of the fairway.

And with that I segue to less berobbed congeniality in the following updates:

From the slapping the spanker file.

Remember Texas Judge William Adams who lost it in more ways than one? For those who forgot, he was the jurist suspended for a year after his daughter, Hillary, posted an embarrassing angry belt-whipping video online. Judge Adams was the belter and Hillary was the beltee. Well, add one more loss for the now ex-jurist. Following enough mea culpas, Judge Adams had been reinstated by the Texas Supremes in November 2012. But thing was, that video followed him around like the proverbial tin can tied to a cat’s tail. So thanks to getting caught beating his daughter on the video, he lost re-election last month. Chalk one up for prudent voters slapping down an ill-advised reelection bid. And give credit to much-maligned judicial elections, which now and then do somehow manage to impose some semblance of accountability courtesy of the voters.
Meanwhile back in Texas, remember Judge William Adams who lost it in more ways than one? For those who forgot, he was the jurist suspended for a year after his daughter, Hillary, posted a video online of the belt-whipping he administered. Well, add one more loss for the ex-jurist. The judge who was reinstated by the Texas Supremes in November 2012 after he was caught beating his daughter on video lost re-election in March. Chalk one up for voters slapping down an ill-advised reelection bid. And chalk up one for much-maligned judicial election voter accountability.

From the foot massages no more file.

Sadly at only age 56, former Clark County, Nevada District Court Judge Elizabeth Halverson passed away March 1, 2014. She’ll be remembered for a lot of things, including the stuff that led to the imposition of judicial discipline. In particular, I’ll recall her former bailiff Johnnie Jordan’s affidavit where he said the judge had ordered him “to massage her feet, neck and shoulders, or some combination of those body parts.”  Also see “Foot massages no more. Nevada Supreme Court reaffirms district court judge’s permanent removal.”

From the shame in his game file.

photoAnd finally it turns out there was more than a little shame in the game of Wayne County, Michigan Circuit Judge Wade H. McCree Jr.

At least more than enough to convince the Michigan Supreme Court to hand down an order dated March 26, 2014 to remove from the bench the self-professed “No shame in my game” judge with a hankering for old-school R & B; inappropriate liaisons in chambers; and bare-chested texts.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/14/It%27s_enough_to_make_a_horse_laugh%2C_1896.jpgKnock on wood but on occasion, I have sore back problems. I usually chalk it up to my sorry golf game or to my reckless past.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/27/Very_slippy-weather.jpg/373px-Very_slippy-weather.jpgThere are a lot of blameworthy pratfalls in my annals of yesteryear. Here’s a short list:  coming off cantering horses; cracking a tailbone rollerblading; one-too-many pick-up basketball games and an assortment of snow-related mishaps from yard-sale ski crashes to some ill-fated snowmobiling capers.

Speaking of snowmobiling, I think I blame that the most. The last one was several years ago in Wyoming.

After a while of herding us in a disordered group on a road or head-to-tail down a path, our guide turned us loose in a snowy meadow — just to get an unrestricted feel of our snowmobiles.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ed/SnowmobilesYellowstone.jpg/320px-SnowmobilesYellowstone.jpgHe told us, “Have fun running your machines but avoid the swales around the trees.”

No sooner said but a friend and I threw proverbial caution to the four winds and forgot his advice. The two of us tore off from the group at high-speed and within three minutes were racing toward a hill and a tree.

Swale? What’s a swale? My friend fortunately remembered the guide’s admonition and at the last second he turned away. Hooting and hollering — I did not. But I ‘won’ the race.

As soon as I hit the swale, my snowmobile went one way and I went the other. I landed right where the good Lord splits you.

After grunting, groaning and griping, I eased myself out of the deep snow, found my snowmobile, and with a little help from my friends was back astride the Artic Cat. The worse, however, lay ahead. The trip back to the lodge was over miles of icy washboard road. I still wince remembering every single teeth-chattering reprimanding rut and bump all the way back.

The filing cabinet.

So here I was over the weekend recalling all this whereupon I decided I may actually have one more thing to blame for my occasional low back pain. I was cleaning out my billfold — a somewhat rare feat. And I remembered what a longtime lawyer friend once ribbed me about a few years back.

We were having breakfast in a coffee shop. And when the check came, I took out my billfold to pay. But when I put my wallet on the table, he started giving me no end of grief over the heft of my billfold, the “filing cabinet under half of my ass.” He laughed and said my cluttered wallet reminded him of George Costanza’s exploding wallet in Seinfeld.

Well, so much for that recollection. I don’t really know if the wallet is to blame. I’m still going with the snowmobile. But at least for now I’ve taken out all the collected paper, business cards, post-its, receipts and notes out of my wallet — that is, until they accumulate again.

Meanwhile, here’s more Free CLE along with the usual disclaimers about content quality, continued availability, and creditworthiness in your particular jurisdiction.

Clifford Law Offices

2014 Webinar: “The Ethics of Client Communications”

“Clifford Law Offices is sponsoring a free two-hour continuing legal education program on the ethics of client communications in the seventh annual Clifford Law Offices Continuing Legal Education Series. The 2014 program will cover the dos, don’ts and best practices of lawyer communication with both commercial and consumer clients; issues in ex parte communications between lawyers and adjudicators; and how to avoid breaches of client confidentiality. The program will also address the unique challenges and ethics of client communications in the Internet Age: What can we say about our cases on our websites and in our marketing materials? Can we discuss our cases in private online forums with other lawyers? How do we handle a bad “Yelp” review? Should we accept Facebook “friend” requests from clients? A number of actual cases and hypotheticals will be presented to help attendees understand the ethics of dealing with client communications in light of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct. The goal of the two hours is to train lawyers on ethical communication with their clients and about their cases.”

Well, I won’t be splitting the Mega Millions with anyone. I didn’t win last night’s gazillion dollars. But then since I forgot to buy a ticket — I can’t complain about not winning the $636 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Congratulations, though, to whoever it was in Atlanta, GA and in San Jose, CA who correctly picked the winning numbers of 8, 14, 17, 20 and 39, with a Megaball of 7. Another 20 ticket holders will win $1 million after matching all the numbers except the Megaball. For the rest of us, “Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”

The truth is that for most of us, the odds of winning aren’t always in our favor. And especially in the case of the Mega Millions Lottery, those odds are now slimmer than ever. The field of numbers to choose from changed from 1 through 56, to 1 through 75 and the odds of winning a jackpot changed from 1 in 176 million, to 1 in 259 million. Last, the jackpot annuity payout changed from 26 years to 30 years.

And speaking of long odds, the legal profession’s own version of “Hunger Games” continues for newbie lawyers. But at least the market correction has accelerated. According to law professor Paul Campos, “Most law schools now appear to be losing money, and law school budgets almost everywhere will undergo even more severe stress as the entering classes of 2011 and 2012 are replaced by much smaller cohorts over the next two to three years.” See Progress report at “Inside the Law School Scam.”

Can this mean the long-term employment odds will gradually improve for law school students and graduates? With law-school matriculation plunging to 1970s levels and some law schools finally wising up and slashing jobs and salaries, it will still take some time.

So what’s next? Serious tuition decreases? Nah. Don’t hold your breath.

The clown car is still packed with too many chuckle heads chortling that the “perceived oversupply of lawyers is largely illusory” while the car goes 90 mph over the nearest cliff. See ASU law school to move to downtown Phoenix in time of lowest law graduate employment.”

And also see “Second-Tier Law Schools Feel The Squeeze As They Stubbornly Keep Tuition Rates High.”
