What is a Webinar?
A webinar consists of one or more instructors delivering content primarily via audio and a PowerPoint™ presentation. Unlike in a webcast, you will not see the instructor; you will only hear his/her voice and see the PowerPoint™ presentation on your screen as the instructor delivers the material. You will receive a PDF of the coursebook, just as you would for an in-person or webcast program.

Presented in partnership with WSBA World Peace Through Law Section


 

In these challenging times fraught with conflict, social injustice, and polarized political discourse, we need leaders who practice civility and foster peace. Civility calls upon us to approach issues with self-awareness, respect, and humaneness. Instead of silencing voices or maintaining the status quo, civility creates the understanding and compassion necessary for an inclusive and diverse dialogue.

 

Because we rely on our justice system to prevent and resolve disputes, when members of the legal profession lead with civility, ensure a more equitable process that affirmatively enhances the experience of all the parties, results in better outcomes, and builds public confidence in the justice system. 

 

In this session, we will review the ways incivility harms us personally and impedes justice. We will discuss how practicing civility complies with the Washington State Rules of Professional Conduct sections 1.1, 1.2, and 3.5. And  because civility, like peace, begins within each of us, we will then focus on strategies for nurturing within ourselves a practice of civility. By practicing civility, lawyers and judges not only promote the interests of justice, but as leaders in their communities, they also model ways to engage in challenging discourse to obtain greater understanding, resolve conflict, and pave the way toward peace within the greater society.
