The Bonehead Play

Without emotion, legal ethics compliance will be best weekly formal. Inspiration for a higher level of ethical performances can come from the rest of life. In this talk, Professor Yochum will explore the ethics of sportsmanship as a model for law's practice. The title refers to the mistake Fred Merkle made in a storied baseball event of 1908, wherein the failure to attend to a simple rule leads to professional disaster and even death. The talk will tell his story and, perhaps, provide guidance on how we deal with errors in others and, inevitably, errors in ourselves.
