Civility in Practice Survey
Commentators have noted a three-part crisis facing the legal profession: lack of civility among lawyers, negative public perceptions of the legal profession, and mental health and substance abuse issues among attorneys.
We have developed a survey to help assess and measure civility in practice. Modeled closely after a survey promulgated by Professionalism Commission of the Illinois Supreme Court, the survey will help establish the extent to which a lack of civility exists and the challenges presented to the legal profession.
Once concluded, the survey results will be reported here. Thanks for your participation!
