During the pandemic, we learned how to adapt and practice law differently, but we also lost something in the way we treat each other as professionals. We need to remember the important role that civility plays in the practice of law and how each of us can promote civility.
Featuring speakers and panelists with diverse backgrounds and perspectives, this year's NCBA Professionalism Committee CLE explores why civility is important, what civility means, how it works, and how to promote civility to improve the profession and make ourselves more effective as attorneys.
