Becoming a Different Kind of Lawyer: Our Broken Compass and the Aspirational Lawyer

The legal profession faces a ‘tri‐partite’ crisis: increasing levels of incivility, lack of public trust and rapidly eroding physical and mental health of its members. Why? In many ways, it is because so many lawyers today follow a broken compass: one concerned with “winning” and divorced from obligations to   clients and the legal system. In this often light‐hearted, one-hour presentation, we will review the root of the profession’s current challenges. We will explore how a dedication to “winning” corrupts our ability to serve appropriately. And, we will focus on how we can become a “Different Kind of Lawyer”: an aspirational vision of the practice of law that confirms the best in us and in the profession.

Free and open to the public.
