Professionalism in the Practice of Law

how do we get there?

The mission of the American Inns of Court is to "...inspire the legal community to advance the rule of law by achieving the highest level of professionalism through example, education, and mentoring." It sounds great—and let's all agree that the profession needs to move in this direction - but putting words into action can be more difficult than it sounds.

This course is designed to provide you with practical tips and ideas on how to recognize, incorporate and embody professionalism as you practice the law. Hear from a cross-section of judges and attorneys who share their own experiences and understanding about professionalism, how it may or may not differ depending on the area of the law, and the impact of the Pandemic. Leave with advice that can be implemented right away, making your practice stronger and the elevating the profession.


  • Part I: What does professionalism mean to you?
  • Part II: Professionalism Potpourri

Each part contains a video presentation and a Knowledge Check. Once you have gone through all the parts, you'll complete an evaluation.
