About the Program

Civility is one of the cornerstones of our society and the legal profession. Yet in recent decades it seems to be withering. The California Civility Task Force was convened to identify methods to bring civility back to the legal profession. This program brings together champions of civility from the bar and the bench and members of the Civility Task Force to discuss common drivers of incivility, what incivility looks like in practice, methods to be more civil while zealously advocating for your clients, impact of incivility on clients and counsel, and more.
