(Ethics MCLE) “Let’s Talk About It” Ethical Art of Civility – Gain the Judge’s Respect

Legal Aid Society of Orange County presents:

Let’s Talk …
The ethical art of civility or how to gain the judge’s respect

You answer “ready” and step up to the lectern. The case has begun, but have you the respect of the court and your opposition attorney? What are you doing which engenders civility? What can you do to attain and retain the professional respect an attorney deserves? What are some ethical choices? Join us for this presentation by one of the court’s most respected retired jurists. Questions will be encouraged.

Speaker will be Judge Tam Nomoto Schumann, Retired
Orange County Superior Court

Judge Tam Nomoto Schumann was the first Asian-American woman on the Orange County bench and its second-longest sitting judge at the time of her retirement in 2013. After handling an extremely heavy caseload throughout her 30-year judicial career, she has a reputation one of the most prompt, efficient and well-organized judges.

Introduced by Commissioner Richard G. Vogl (Ret.)

(“Let’s Talk About…” is a series of classes sponsored by the Legal Aid Society of Orange County and led by Commissioner Vogl. This series covers a variety of court issues and is for MCLE credit for lawyers, paralegals, and office staff.)
