Francine Griesing will discuss whether there has been a decline in civility and respectfulness in the legal profession and how this impacts lawyers, paralegals and other professionals working in the law. We will review the PA Code of Professional Conduct, the PA Code of Civility for Judges and Lawyer, and Court and Judge rules. Our discussion will focus on how these issues impact not only lawyers, but other legal professionals including paralegals. The program will discuss bullying and bias by lawyers in our firms, opposing counsel, clients, witnesses and the judiciary. We will explore effective strategies to respond to offensive and disrespectful conduct when we are targeted or observe others being subjected to it.
