The Civility Center for Law (CCL) and The National Judicial College are presenting this special seminar.

Judges are role models for all the people who work in the legal system. The degree to which judges practice and promote civility directly impacts the quality of decisions made as well as public confidence in our legal system. Practicing civility improves personal health, workplace productivity, and the ability to make good decisions. This transformative seminar will help judges better understand the need for civility in our legal system and develop strategies to increase civility throughout all levels of the legal system.

About the Italy Seminar

Set in Sovana, Tuscany, a medieval village surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, our seven-day program integrates lectures, small-group discussions, and interactive exercises.

You will:

  • Develop and deepen relationships;
  • Relax and reconnect with yourself; and
  • Earn 30 CJE credits (including 8 ethics credits) and still have plenty
    of time to explore the spectacular surrounding towns of Pitigliano and
    Sorano, as well as Etruscan tombs, the famous Tuscan landscape,
    and more.
