CLE: Civility in the Courtroom

The need for civility in the courtroom has never been greater – especially in the age of stressful economic times and advanced technology! As an Illinois attorney, you need to understand how less-than-civil conduct can negatively impact your argument and reputation. Join us in Chicago on Dec. 5 for this half-day seminar that offers good practice tips for handling your next case with civility and professionalism. Litigators with all levels of practice experience who attend this seminar will better understand: why the Illinois Supreme Court Rule 794(d)(1) requires attorneys to complete six hours of Professional Responsibility MCLE credit; how civility is doing in the Illinois state and federal courts; how to achieve proper civility in the courtroom; what the Commission on Professionalism of the Supreme Court of Illinois has found in regard to civility in the Illinois courtrooms; why certain litigation areas are more prone to uncivil behaviors; and how to foster civility in the courtroom.

The program – which qualifies for 3.5 hours MCLE credit, including 3.25 hours Professional Responsibility MCLE credit (subject to approval) – is presented by the ISBA Bench and Bar Section and co-sponsored by the ISBA Civil Practice and Procedure Section and the ISBA Family Law Section.
