“Mentoring and Professionalism Still Matter,” By Lanny Lambert

Nov 16, 2016

I recently had the opportunity to visit our northern neighbors to provide a keynote address at the Federation of Ontario Law Associations 2016 Spring Plenary Conference on behalf of NCBP. Like NCBP, FOLA is an association that represents the interests of practicing lawyers and its committees deal with the many issues affecting the legal profession. I share with you my keynote, in which I discussed why mentoring and professionalism still matter. The practice of law is an honor and privilege, one that carries great responsibility to our clients, associates, partners and opposing counsel and society. As lawyers, we are a part of something that is much greater than simply making a living.

Several years ago, a Florida lawyer was suspended for sending emails to opposing counsel, calling opposing counsel a liar and disingenuous, saying that his motions were laughable and scurrilous, and accusing the other lawyer of being incompetent. More recently, an Illinois lawyer was suspended for repeatedly calling opposing counsel offensive names, including a "whore" and a "child molester." Sadly, stories like these - while shocking - are far from uncommon. These incidents reflect a disturbing trend of a growing lack of civility in our profession.
