Not only do lawyers serve as representatives of their clients, they serve as officers of the legal system and public citizens having special responsibility to the quality of justice. To fulfill these overarching and overlapping roles, lawyers must make civility their professional standard and ideal. In doing so, they will receive better results for themselves and their clients.

During this session you will learn what civility means and the consequences of bad behavior, including:

• Civility as a condition of getting and keeping your license.
• The difference between zealous advocacy and civility.
• Solutions to the lawyer incivility problem.
• Benefits of civility.
