All too often, civility and professionalism take a back seat during high-stress interactions among lawyers, clients, and judges. Add in the challenges from the pandemic, and you’ve got a recipe for disrespectful, discourteous, and potentially sanctionable conduct. Co-sponsored by the PBA Civility in the Profession Committee, presenters will use interesting vignettes based on real-life scenarios to:
- Spark interactive discussions on how to be an effective advocate without sacrificing civility and professionalism
- Provide tools to help navigate through volatile situations with opposing counsel and
- Illustrate why lawyers and clients benefit when lawyers pursue civility and professionalism in their day-to-day practices
