Title of Presentation : Building on Best Practices and Educating Lawyers to Be Public Citizens

Names of all Presenters : Nancy Cook, Ann Juergens, Antoinette Sedillo Lopez

Short Abstract : Our presentation will focus on the lawyer’s role as public citizen, which we believe is a matter of professional responsibility throughout the world. We begin with a comparison of approaches to this professional duty. We will then engage the audience in exercises designed to draw attention to the intersections of professional responsibility, community responsibility, and cultural sensitivity, and the inherent challenges in meeting those goals and responsibilities. We will demonstrate teaching methods that communicate these issues to students, and end with a discussion of “best practices” in this area.
