Somewhere along the way, lawyers decided ethics CLEs were boring. But since they’re still important, the ABA decided to put together a touring program that uses role playing in order to make the subjects more relatable to lawyers. In this report from On The Road, host Laurence Colletti talks to Greg Brooker and Katherine Mikkelson about this program and how it has grown. During the episode, they also give examples of their role playing scenarios, their parts ranging from disgruntled cops to confused U.S. Senators.

Greg Brooker is an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota in Minneapolis. He serves as Chief of the Civil Division.

Katherine Mikkelson has over 15 years of experience in the field and her articles have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Adoptive Families magazine as well as professional association publications, small business and nonprofit communications.
