Join this panel discussion featuring judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys to discuss the ethical obligations that lead our justice system.

What You’ll Learn:
1. The ethical rules in an adversarial system, including how to manifest a professional and courteous attitude toward opposing counsel
2. When does a lack of civility or unprofessional conduct become an ethical violation
3. Why civility at all? What does it do for us, for our profession, for our institution, and for our community?
