X. Convocations on Professionalism


The Commission's state-wide convocations on professionalism gives greater impetus and sharper focus to professionalism issues:

1988  "The Practice of Law - Is There Anything More to It Than Making Money?"

1989  "A New Era of Professionalism"

1990  "The Social Responsibilities of Lawyers in the Practice of Law - The Lawyer as Citizen"

1991  "Professionalism - Passing It Along"  (Mentoring)

1992  "Town Hall Meetings - Attorney Concerns about Ethics and Professionalism"

1993  "Ethics - Beyond the Code"

1994-96 "Town Hall Meetings - Professionalism in Client Relations"

1996  "Professionalism and Community Service"

1997  "Professionalism and Public Service"

2010 "Law Practice 2010 and Beyond: Challenges and Opportunities"

In recent years, the concept of convocations on professionalism has been adopted by other bar groups.  For example, the Family Law Section of the State Bar conducts an annual "Family Law Convocation on Professionalism."
