    In this unique legal ethics program, award-winning stage and film actor Paul Morella, who has been portraying Clarence Darrow to acclaim for nearly two decades, reenacts some of the iconic lawyer’s most riveting courtroom moments while laying the foundation for an examination of the ethical issues raised during the performance, including conflicts of interest, jury nullification, dishonesty, misrepresentation, fraud and more. 

    Paul Morella has performed professionally in regional theatre, film, television and radio for over almost four decades. For the past 19 years, he has toured with his one-person show, A Passion for Justice: An Encounter with Clarence Darrow, appearing before some of the most elite trial lawyers, law firms, legal organizations and bar associations in the country. No stranger to lawyers, Mr. Morella received unanimous critical acclaim and a Helen Hayes Award nomination for his portrayal of Roy Cohn in both parts of Angels in America. He also appeared as prosecuting attorney Horace Gilmer in the world premiere of To Kill A Mockingbird, as well as attorney Jarreld Schwabe opposite Julia Roberts in The Pelican Brief, among many others. His extensive credits include more than 64 leading roles in over 125 professional productions, as well as 22 world premieres. His one-person adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has become a tradition in the Washington, DC area, playing to unanimous critical acclaim and sold-out houses for over 10 years. Mr. Morella is also a highly sought-after trial consultant and oral advocacy trainer in the nation’s capital, where he has been a member of the faculty of American University’s Washington College of Law for 24 years, teaching the art of persuasion as part of the Trial Advocacy Program. In addition to The Pelican Brief (directed by Alan J. Pakula), Mr. Morella has appeared in The Replacements (with Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman), The Hunley (with Armand Assante), That Night (with Juliet Lewis), Diner (directed by Barry Levinson), Liberty (with George Kennedy and Chris Sarandon), HBO’s The Wire, HBO’s The Corner, and recurring roles on Homicide: Life on the Street and The District (with Craig T. Nelson). He also has portrayed three felons and two victims on the Fox television series America’s Most Wanted, and was chosen by host John Walsh as one of only three actors to be featured on their special 700th capture episode. An honors graduate of Washington and Lee University, Mr. Morella received his MFA (Acting) from Catholic University. He is a vested lifetime member of Actors’ Equity Association and the Screen Actors Guild.

    Join us for a trial reenactment of Korematsu v. United States. During the World War II, Japanese Americans were regarded as a threat to U.S. security and were sent to remote internment camps in the West. However, Korematsu stood up for his rights as an American-born citizen.

    Join us for a trial reenactment of Korematsu v. United States. During World War II, Japanese Americans were regarded as a threat to U.S. security and were sent to remote internment camps in the West. However, Korematsu stood up for his rights as an American-born citizen. He took his case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which rejected his claim that the relocation of Japanese Americans during the War was based on racial bias. At this program CBA members will reenact key moments from his trial and panelists will examine key areas of law involved in the case. This program will be held in person at The Chicago Bar Association building (321 S. Plymouth Court, Chicago, IL 60604). Sandwiches will be served in advance of the program.

    The trial reenactment materials were drafted and generously provided by the Asian American Bar Association of New York. The program is co-sponsored by The Chicago Bar Association D.I.C.E Committee, the Young Lawyers Section of the CBA and the Japanese American Bar Association of Chicago.
     
    Remarks:
    Daniel Berkowitz, Chair of Young Lawyers Section, The Chicago Bar Association
    Nina Fain, Treasurer & Co-Chair D.I.C.E Committee, The Chicago Bar Association

    In this How To…, we’ll walk through the set-up process and different usage scenarios so that you’ll leave ready to put it into practice. We’ll discuss multiple platforms, but primarily focus on and demonstrate using LastPass.

    A password manager is one of the most significant steps you can take to improve your security online. Are you still practicing bad password habits, like using one or a handful of passwords for all your logins, or using easy to guess passwords like “123456” (still the most common password in use)? If so, you and your firm’s security are at a significantly greater risk. A password manager helps you securely store your passwords and generate extremely secure ones, so you can have increased peace of mind without having to remember a million different combinations. It also makes collaboration and delegation a breeze. In this How To…, we’ll walk through the set-up process and different usage scenarios so that you’ll leave ready to put it into practice.
