Douglas E. Abrams on Civility

Civility (Part II) by Douglas E. Abrams.


“‘All advocacy involves conflict and calls for the will to win,’ said New Jersey Supreme Court Chief Justice Arthur T. Vanderbilt, but the will to win is only one ingredient of professionalism. Advocates, he added, also ‘must have character,’ marked by ‘certain general standards of conduct, of manners, and of expression.’ One prime marker of an advocate’s character is civility.”
