This is one of the least effective CLE's I've experienced. The written materials are inadequate - as far as I can tell, this was a preview of the speaker's book for law school consumption. Constant references to the speaker's book wasted time and made little sense since I was unable to see what the audience presumable saw - pages of his book.

This lecture made you really think about the scope of the fiduciary duty, and to critically articulate your duty to each party to a transaction or relationship. This gentleman gets 10 stars.

Rafael Chodos

RAFAEL CHODOS has been an attorney in private practice in Los Angeles for over 37 years. Before he became an attorney, he taught Latin, Greek and Hebrew in high school and college. After receiving his B.A. from UC-Berkeley in philosophy, he went into the computer field where he started his own software company which specialized in an early application of artificial intelligence: the design and optimization of large-scale telecommunications networks.

After becoming a lawyer, he maintained his interest in computers and published his treatise, The Law of Fiduciary Duties (2000, Blackthorne Legal Press) simultaneously in hardcover and CD-ROM formats. His treatise has been cited by several California courts of appeal, and by the California Supreme Court. In 2010, he launched an online eBook library, and in 2011, after the hardcover edition of his treatise had sold out, he published the second edition as an eBook in a dedicated chamber of that library. He is the author of several books and many articles on the history of ideas, philosophy, religion, and art, as well as law.
