The Civility Promise Seminars
CO-SPONSORED BY ROBERT'S FUND AND SEATTLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW
As part of our mission, Robert's Fund is pleased to offer a limited number of sliding scale need-based fee-reduction scholarships for all CLE/CJE seminars. Scholarship applications for this 2-day seminar must be submitted by Tuesday, July 29, 2014.
Civility in law practice benefits clients, practitioners, the profession, and the pursuit of justice. Furthermore, the costs of incivility extend beyond economics and time. Incivility impacts the mental and physical health of all who are involved in the system, and it impairs the pursuit of justice. The Civility Promise: Foundations of Civility seminar provides an overview of the issues related to incivility, as well as strategies on how to effectively foster civility within our profession. In this 2-day intensive seminar, we will strive to create a retreat-like seminar. Through a series of lectures from prominent practitioners and judges, interactive exercises, and group discussion, we will explore and discuss characteristics of civility, the costs of incivility, the benefits of civility, the foundations of civility, and strategies to foster civility. Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on the ideals of our profession, revitalize their commitment to their practice, and address relevant areas in their personal and professional lives to enable them to foster civility in their practice and promote justice for their clients.
