Special JAMS Mediation Event Invitation To
RCBA BARRISTERS & ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICAN LAWYERS of the Inland Empire (APALIE) Members!
Someone once said that when you sling mud, you lose ground. It’s clever, but is it possible for litigators to heed that sentiment by being civil with opposing counsel and representing their clients’ best interests at the same time?
You’re invited to join a conversation about why civility in the law is not just possible, but essential, at an interactive program on Thursday, October 16 from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Co-presented by the Riverside Barristers, the Asian Pacific American Lawyers of the Inland Empire and JAMS, the presentation will offer one hour of ethics credit.
The complimentary program will be geared toward young attorneys and established practitioners who serve as mentors to provide a useful framework for practicing civility in the law. The discussion will include professionalism guidelines, related court decisions, and real-life anecdotes about civility—or a lack thereof—in the legal profession. Hon. John Kennedy (Ret.), a full-time neutral with JAMS and retired San Bernardino County Superior Court judge, will lead the discussion.
Immediately following the program, you’re invited to stay for a craft beer-tasting reception where you’re free to network, sample hors d’oeuvres and local brews, and most of all, enjoy some civility with your colleagues in a relaxed and comfortable setting!
