Legal Ethics Publications & CLE Webinars

Joseph, Hollander & Craft’s legal ethics and malpractice group is pleased to offer resources on this subject to their friends and colleagues in the bar. Currently, JHC offers two resources of significant value to the legal community in Kansas, Missouri, and across the US: our monthly Legal Ethics & Malpractice Reporter (LEMR) publication, and free, quarterly continuing legal education (CLE) seminars. Subscribe to our email list via the form on this page to receive LEMR and information on upcoming CLEs.

Legal Ethics & Malpractice Reporter

Legal Ethics & Malpractice Reporter

The Legal Ethics & Malpractice Reporter (LEMR) is a monthly publication covering current developments in ethics and malpractice law. This popular, free publication, with close to 8,000 current subscribers, was envisioned by KU Law professor Mike Hoeflich, who serves as the publication’s editor in chief. After nearly forty years of teaching legal ethics, Professor Hoeflich came to believe that most lawyers find it difficult to keep current with developments in legal ethics and malpractice law—both in their own jurisdictions and nationwide. He set out to make it easier.

Professor Hoeflich joined forces with publisher Joseph, Hollander & Craft LLC to bring his vision to fruition. The firm’s legal ethics and malpractice group—including Diane Bellquist, Christopher Joseph, Christopher McHugh, and Carrie Parker—shares Professor Hoeflich’s vision of helping attorneys better understand the evolving landscape of legal ethics, professional responsibility, and malpractice. We are all thrilled to partner with Professor Hoeflich in producing practical educational materials for the legal community in Kansas, Missouri, and beyond.

This site serves as the repository for the monthly issues of the Legal Ethics & Malpractice Reporter as well as blog posts providing pertinent and pragmatic ethics and malpractice information for lawyers. To receive LEMR and related content directly in your inbox, you may subscribe here.

Continuing Legal Education (CLE)

Joseph, Hollander & Craft offers four (4) free CLE seminars annually — one per quarter — which are consistently approved for credit by Kansas Continuing Legal Education and The Missouri Bar. These seminars are regularly attended by hundreds of attorneys across Kansas and Missouri (and sometimes beyond). In 2021, JHC ethics CLEs drew more than 2,100 (1,340 unique) participants.
