2.0 CLE credits: Ethics

Increasingly, lawyer civility and congeniality is becoming a thing of the past. Yet, it doesn't have to be that way. Civil litigation need not lead to all-out civil war. As legal professionals, lawyers have an obligation to act just that way — professionally. In this humorous presentation, veteran attorney and legal humorist Sean Carter will remind you that zealous advocacy does not require you to be a zealot. It's possible to be courteous, kind, accommodating and effective. In fact, for the continued well-being of the profession (and yourself), it's necessary. In particular, Mr. Carter will discuss practical ways to:

•   Reduce the hostility in interactions with even the most difficult opposing counsel;

•   Increase camaraderie among colleagues;

•     Diffuse tensions among warring clients;

•     Secure accommodations from opposing counsel;

•     Structure more mutually beneficial arrangements with clients;

•     And much more.
