Professionalism and Legal Ethics: Do They Reinforce Each Other?

October 27, 2016

This program will highlight strategies for strengthening the professionalism of lawyers by chronicling some of the extensive initiatives of courts, bars, legal organizations and law schools. The panelists will discuss how failures of professionalism (including uncivil conduct and lackadaisical adherence to the rules of professional conduct) result in a decrease in public confidence in the civil justice system and seriously undermine the legal profession.

Panelists:

  • Keith R. Fisher (moderator), National Center for State Courts, Arlington, VA
  • Hon. Douglas S. Lang, 5th District Court of Appeals, Dallas, TX
  • Frank E. Stevenson, Locke Lord, LLP, Dallas, TX
