Distinction Between Ethics and Professionalism
The Supreme Court has distinguished between ethics and professionalism, to the extent of creating separate one-hour CLE requirements for each. The best explanation of the distinction between ethics and professionalism that is offered by former Chief Justice Harold Clarke of the Georgia Supreme Court:
“. . . the idea that ethics is a minimum standard which is required of all lawyers while professionalism is a higher standard expected of all lawyers.”
Join Wendy Williamson for a discussion on the Laws and the Rules of Professional Conduct. This CLE is approved by the State Bar of Georgia for 1 hour of Professionalism credit.
NOTE: Only “Self-Study” CLE credits apply if viewing this presentation via web conferencing.
