Description

Join this panel discussion featuring judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys to discuss the ethical obligations that lead our justice system. Attendees learn about the goals of a fair outcome from each side of the aisle, with practical and relevant information for their day-to-day professional lives.

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?
4. Are there professional and practical reasons to limit “civility” in the adversarial arena in criminal cases? How may civility and effective advocacy coexist in an adversary system?

"Too short and too little time. A few more videos would have been useful. "

"Could barely hear the questions from the audience. One slide was left up too long and did not coordinate with certain topics being presented and did not show the panel or speakers some of the time."
