Civility in the Legal Profession: Zealous Advocacy v. Professional Duty
Is civility in professional practice only a collateral veneer, and what is the fundamental value and duty of lawyers toward clients? Join Clyde K. Wells, Q.C., former Newfoundland Prime Minister, and other speakers who will lead this discussion at the CBA Legal conference.
The CBA’s Access to Justice Committee moved a resolution (.pdf) that calls for the CBA to:
• work with interested justice sector organizations, service providers and community-based organizations to increase public awareness about the importance of legal aid and the costly personal and social consequences of inadequate legal aid; and
• equip its members to raise legal aid as an election issue in upcoming federal, provincial and territorial elections.
The resolution will be debated by Council on August 14 at the CBA Legal Conference in St. John’s, NL.
