The Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism has spent years changing the conversation on professionalism in the legal profession. Thanks to the dedicated work of our Commissioners and staff, we have been asked to speak about civility, professionalism, and inclusion, both around our state, and around the country.
Just in the past year, we have traveled to California, Connecticut, Ohio, South Carolina, and Colorado to share our thoughts on the legal profession. Now we’ll be adding South Dakota to this growing list.
This week, Commission Executive Director Jayne Reardon and Professionalism Counsel Mark Palmer will make their way to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to present at the 2016 State Bar of South Dakota’s Annual Convention alongside Lori Keating, the Attorney Services Counsel and Secretary of the Ohio Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism.
The South Dakota Bar Convention runs from June 22nd through the 24th, and will offer up a number of CLE programs and educational sessions each day, including one entirely focused on civility and professionalism.
Jayne Reardon will kick off the “Professionalism” session on Thursday, June 23rd at the state’s bar convention with the keynote address discussing the relevancy of professionalism in future law.
Jayne will continue the conversation with Mark Palmer and Lori Keating, as the three discuss strategies for incorporating multi-generational communication and inclusive leadership skills into one’s law practice, approaching professionalism proactively, and increasing the impact of civility in the workplace.
The professionalism session is scheduled to run from 8:00am until 11:45am on the 23rd.
At this time, pre-registration is closed for the State Bar of South Dakota Annual Convention, but on-site registration will be open starting at 11am on Wednesday, June 22nd if you still would like to attend.
