The Business Law Society at Regent University hosted a screening of UnSettled, a documentary that deals with ethical issues surrounding the asbestos litigation, especially on the Plaintiffs’ side.
Center for Ethical Formation and Legal Education Reform Co-Director Natt Gantt sat on the panel.
The documentary focused on issues such as paralegals coaching witnesses on what to say, filing frivolous lawsuits, and filing an unnecessarily large number of suits in an attempt to win more money. After the screening, the panel provided feedback regarding the issues addressed in the documentary as well as fielding some questions.
"The purpose of the UnSettled Screening and Panel was to inform current students of the ethical realities in the practice of law and especially in 'Big Law,'" said James Rhyne, President of Regent Law's Business Law Society. "The hope was to illustrate through the screening and discussion how we as attorneys-in-the-making can make a positive impact in the practice of law and society's stigma regarding attorneys in general."
