Building on a record of strong CLEs, a new podcast, and other activities, the Standing Committee on Professionalism will be aiming at helping lawyers cope with a new legal landscape in the post COVID-19 pandemic world.

“We have a lot of new ways of doing business and practicing law,” said incoming Chair Elizabeth Hunter at the committee’s June 10 meeting during the Bar’s Annual Convention. “As things open up, we’re going to be changing and bringing some new ideas and keeping some of the old. During change, our profession is really challenged. We get to be a positive part of that change.”

She also said professionalism will be a high-profile issue in the coming year with incoming President Michael Tanner’s creation of the Special Committee on Professionalism. Hunter and incoming President-elect Gary Lesser are co-chairs of the special committee.
