Program Summary:

This interactive, transformative 3-part series is designed to challenge lawyers in their thinking about civility; why civility might be on the decline; what triggers incivility; and how we can commit to and help grow a more civil profession.

As lawyers we are a powerful influence within society. We work with individual clients to either prevent or resolve conflict through negotiation, settlement, ADR or litigation. We shape our laws as politicians or judges; and we serve as leaders in our respective communities - either in our capacity as lawyers or as members of larger groups. When we are civil, we help de-escalate conflict, reduce rudeness, increase empathy and ultimately increase understanding.

Civility is more than politeness and affability; it incorporates deep acceptance and skilled management of differences, disagreements and conflict. We are not born with the tools, skills or knowledge required for civility. However, these skills can be learned and put into practice in a manner that is consistent, reliable and influential.

The format of this program necessitates a limit of 50 participants and a certificate of completion is provided.
