IBA: Do You Know the 5 Rules of Civility?

March 13, 2013

How do you want to be remembered when you retire from the practice of law? Or, if you have already retired, how do you hope your former colleagues speak of you now?

The IndyBar Professionalism Committee is here to help with the latest edition of “Pause for Professionalism.” This video installment features Hon. Tanya Walton-Pratt of the Southern District of Indiana discussing the “Five Rules of Civility.” As with the previous videos in the series, although Judge Pratt currently serves on the Southern District, the rules she discusses can be applied across the bar.

The video, along with previous installments of “Pause for Professionalism,” can be found at http://www.indybar.org/resources/video-gallery/.

Take a moment, watch the video and listen to Judge Pratt’s rules of civility. The video offers five rules in about four minutes, so it isn’t a large time commitment. And, after you watch the video, go out and not only practice these rules, but discuss them with colleagues. Become the kind of attorney that people will remember as being professional and courteous.•
