ETHICS & CIVILITY IN THE COURTROOM

Published by New York State Trial Lawyers Association




Summary
This Ethics webinar will inform participants about the import of courtroom demeanor during trial from the perspective of a trial lawyer engaging the jury hearing a case, the trial judge presiding over the trial and the appellate judge reviewing the record. Our distinguished panel will discuss several cases, but will focus on one notable case tried by Mr. Rubinowitz in front of Judge Rakower that was subsequently brought up on appeal to a First Department Panel that included Justice Kapnick. This unique and engaging discussion will provide multiple perspectives on how to try a case with zeal, while also being mindful of the bounds of professional responsibility.
