Professional Development Course:


Vivá la revolution?! Civility in the Canadian Legal Profession (ACL CIV 101)

Lecturer: Professor Adam Dodek, LSM University of Ottawa.


Over the last fifteen years, the legal profession in Canada has been engaged in a sustained civility campaign.    It has celebrated and elevated civility and prioritized it at the cost of other more important values and issues in the legal profession and in the administration of justice.  This provocative lecture will explore and reveal the roots of the duty of civility for Canadian lawyers from the 19th century until modern day.   Is the civility revolution over in Canada?   We’ll see.

CPD: 1.5 hours including 1.5 hour in client relations, ethics and professional responsibility.
