Some of the most effective and entertaining ethics lessons of the year were brought to life in a dazzling three-night run on the stage of Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret in November. The CBA-CLE 2011 Ethics Revue is an incredible CLE program produced and performed by a talented group of lawyers and judges from the Law Club. The production weaves dancing, singing, music, and ethics lessons into one irreverent musical satire.
The theme this year was Pirates of the COBAR: Search for the Ethics Pearl, with Greg Cairns as Captain and Patricia Madsen as First Mate and hosted by Phil James, chair of the CBA Ethics Committee. Moderated by the Honorable Claude Appel, the Ethics Committee Panel brought wisdom and gravitas with insightful ethics lessons from attorneys Michael Berger and Marcy Glenn, and the Honorable Ray Satter. Director Barbara Laff ably guided the production that featured clever legal-themed twists on the lyrics of familiar songs including: “Mister Adjuster” (“Officer Krupke”), “Litigation, A Lawyer’s Life for Me” (“A Pirate’s Life for Me”), and “Tweet It” (“Beat It”).
Watch the trailer below to get a taste of the “must see” musical production of the year. And, you can also get the whole program for 3 ethics CLE credits! Click here for more information.
The Law Club was founded nearly 100 years ago by a group of young lawyers, as a way to meet and discuss legal topics. The club evolved over the years and started staging elaborate skits and productions featuring distinguished judges, as well as founders and senior partners of some of Colorado’s most prestigious law firms. Today’s Law Club puts their talents to good use performing at various law functions throughout the year.
We look forward to seeing what antics the Law Club gets into for the 2012 Revue!
