CNA - Stemming the Tide of Incivility in the Practice of Law

As officers of the legal system, attorneys play a special role in the preservation of democratic society. When lawyers engage fairly and with respect for all parties involved, they instill public confidence in the justice system and the rule of law. In the course of representing clients, lawyers serve as advisors, advocates, negotiators, and evaluators. They have a duty to protect and pursue client objectives and in so doing, engage in advocacy and debate.

Every lawyer has a role to play and is in a position to stand up for civil and professional conduct in the legal profession. By looking inwards, bringing attention to unprofessional behavior and reinforcing positive conduct, all of us can help to combat the rise of incivility in the profession.
