IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE, SHUT UP!

The Ethical Imperative for Civility

Wednesday, Aug 19, 2020
12:00 pm- 1:00 pm CT
1 hour of Ethics & Professionalism
As children, we were all taught, "If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all." Well, that advice holds especially true for lawyers. Whether in open court, a deposition, or contract negotiation, lawyers who choose to "go low," run a high risk of bar discipline. Increasingly, disciplinary authorities are treating the once aspirational goal of civility as a mandate. Therefore, it's important for all lawyers to be reminded of their obligation to "play nice."
