Public trust and confidence in the judicial system is undermined when judges make ethical missteps.

With more and more litigants appearing in court without the means to hire lawyers, and with the anticipated wave of cases involving people and small businesses economically devastated by the pandemic, judges need to understand the contours of their ethical responsibilities in cases involving self-represented litigants. This webinar will explore that topic in depth.

What will I learn?

During this course, you will learn to:

  • Cope with the anticipated “tsunami” of post-COVID disputes involving litigants who suffered financial reversals during the pandemic
  • Identify the rules of judicial conduct pertinent to adjudicating disputes involving pro se litigants
  • Expand access to the court without compromising neutrality
  • Internalize the boundaries of judicial discretion and distinguish reasonable accommodations for pro se litigants from unreasonable accommodations

Participation is open to judges and members of judicial disciplinary bodies.
