CIVILITY MATTERS SEMINAR
ABOTA is an organization that requires its members to be responsible for elevating the standards of integrity, honor, ethics, civility and courtesy in the legal profession. Members cultivate a spirit of camaraderie and fellowship among each other and work to encourage and advance members of ABOTA professionally. ABOTA’s mission is to educate attorneys, students, the community and other professionals.
The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) is proud to present Civility Matters, an effort to promote the first specific purpose in ABOTAʼs constitution: “To elevate the standards of integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession.” ABOTA created Civility Matters with the hope that the program would be presented at all ABOTA educational activities, other bar and professional programs, and, especially, in every law school in the country.
