Continuing Legal Education Programs on Civility in the Legal Profession
Presented by Robert's Fund and Seattle University School of Law
August 8-9, 2014 • 14 CLE credits, including 4.25 ethics
Civility in law practice benefits clients, practitioners, the profession, and the pursuit of justice. Furthermore, the costs of incivility extend beyond economics and time The Foundations of Civility seminar provides an overview of the issues related to incivility, as well as strategies on how to effectively foster civility within our profession.
In this 2-day intensive seminar, we will strive to create a retreat-like seminar. Through a series of lectures from prominent practitioners and judges, interactive exercises, and group discussion, we will explore and discuss characteristics of civility, the costs of incivility, and strategies to foster civility. Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on the ideals of our profession and address relevant areas in their personal and professional lives to enable them to foster civility in their practice and promote justice for their clients.
