Civil War Lessons for Lawyers: A Dialogue with President Lincoln is a unique and compelling opportunity to engage with President Lincoln (portrayed by nationally renowned Civil War reenactor Robert Costello), as he provides fascinating insight into the famous cases he handled, to the lawyers that surrounded him, and his masterpiece, the 272-word Gettysburg Address - which is not only a model of conciseness, but is also fertile grounds for a better understanding and adaptation of the Rules of Professional Conduct. Our legal panel (President Lincoln’s modern friends) will tie these conversations to legal practice today, showing as advocates, the role of the modern day attorney in advancing Lincoln’s principles.
As an attendee, you’ll witness history come alive as you pick up tips on the importance of communication, responsibility, representation, and client interaction as they relate to attorney ethics and beyond.
