NEW BRUNSWICK - Join us November 18 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the New Jersey Commission on Professionalism in the Law as a panel of representatives from each of the groups comprising the commission discuss their own experiences with professionalism and apply the commission’s Principles of Professionalism to today’s practice. Whether a lawyer is dealing with clients, other counsel or the court, or judges are interacting with counsel or litigants, adherence to standards of professional responsibility and a broad respect for the law are necessary components for an enlightened and effective system of justice. Hear from the esteemed members of our panel about how to maintain the utmost professional integrity and courtesy in and out of the courtroom; how to effectively mentor and model professionalism for your new associates; and what resources are available to help you when you are faced with unprofessional situations.
