The Case for Civility - W

The Chicago Bar Association and the American Board of Trial Advocates-Illinois Chapter are proud to present this program in an effort to promote and elevate the standards of integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession. The program features first-hand lessons and experience and is intended to instill values and standards that promote high regard for the legal profession.

Course Description:
Lawyers are not just expected, but obligated to zealously advocate for their clients. At the same time, maintaining a reputation of integrity and civility in the legal profession are more important than any one disputed issue or case. In this seminar, you will learn through a series of true-to-life examples complete with audio/visual how to identify and avoid instances of incivility, while maintaining your reputation in the process. You will learn not only how having a good attitude and behavior can be contagious, but also how your practice will become less stressful and more profitable when civility is your habit.

When it comes to civility in the legal profession, there are two kinds of lawyers: those whose conduct makes them part of the problem and those whose conduct makes them part of the solution. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how you can be a part of the solution!
