Lawyers Mutual’s Courtney Risk spoke last week at the Kentucky Bar Association Annual Convention about the use of Generative AI in the Legal Arena and additional resources are in the works for insureds—stay tuned!

It’s a completely anonymous Interactive Screening Program for Kentucky Lawyers only, created by our partners at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

I (Can’t) Challenge You to a Duel:
Kentucky Attorneys and the Ethical Implications of Dueling

May 21, 2024 at 1:00 pm EST
1.0 Hour KY Ethics CLE Credit

“I... have not fought a duel with deadly weapons within this State nor out of it, nor have I sent or accepted a challenge to fight a duel with deadly weapons, nor have I acted as second in carrying a challenge, nor aided or assisted any person thus offending...” New Kentucky attorneys have giggled their way through this oath for generations, but few have become borderline obsessed with figuring out how it even got in the Constitution in the first place, why we still say it today, and wondering whether the Model Rules or the Kentucky Supreme Court Rules would prevent us from dueling without it. Fortunately, Kentucky attorney Anna Girard Fletcher has developed just such an obsession and through a series of historical anecdotes, pop culture references, attorney discipline cases, and absurd hypotheticals will lead you on a journey through Kentucky’s dueling past, and a discussion of the ethical implications of the way we “duel” today.
