Description

[In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org - In this presentation given at a meeting of the American Bar Association in 2007 titled "Civility in the Legal Profession: Where Has It Gone, and Why Does It Matter? An Entertainment Lawyer's View," attorney Philip K. Lyon opens the question of why the law profession has become less civil over the last few decades, and what the legal profession loses when professional camaraderie disappears from common use. He addresses what civility adds to legal proceedings, shares some stories of how badly things can go when lawyers forget to be civil, an engages in an extended discussion of the ethical and professional obligations that lawyers have to be civil, ethical, and human in their dealings with clients, peers and adversaries.]
