Ethics, Civility, and Professionalism in the Courtroom: A Disciplinary Perspective
Friday, April 21, 2017 | 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM PST

The practice of law is more competitive than ever, and hard-charging attorneys with winner-take-all attitudes seem ever-present - even in the courtroom, where civility and decorum once ruled.

This panel, all with experience in attorney discipline, will discuss several key questions involving the disciplinary ramifications of over-the-top courtroom lawyering:

  • Where lies the dividing line between zealous advocacy and sanctionable conduct?
  • Is rudeness protected speech?
  • When is patently unprofessional behavior tantamount to failure to perform a lawyer’s duties competently - or even moral turpitude?

These vital topics and more will be explored in an animated, conversational format.
