It's not too early to earn your ethics and professionalism for 2016!
January 28, 2016

Ethics at 12 Noon - “The Lawyer’s Role in Preserving the Impartiality and Decorum of the Tribunal”
Speaker: James Gulotta, Stone Pigman

This program will explore the relationship and interplay of Rules of Professional Conduct 3.5, 7.1(c), and 8.2 in the contexts of advertising, client development, and contributions to judicial candidates.  

Professionalism at 1:10 pm - “Navigating Professionalism Landmines: Stereotypes in the Workplace.”  
Speaker, MyKell Clem, Louisiana 4th Circuit Court of Appeal

The presentation will help you to understand what stereotypes are and the difference between them and prejudices. You will also understand how our brains are programmed to automatically filter information based upon our influences and beliefs.  These influences and beliefs along with our personal experiences help create stereotypes, which affect how we interact with individuals from various groups.  The presentation is designed to help people acknowledge that we all have hidden biases/stereotypes, how to check ourselves when we judge others based on those biases/stereotypes, and how to better communicate and interact with others in our profession.
