Duke Law Mock Trial Board, Duke Law Moot Court Board, and Distinguished Trial Lawyers from The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) are proud to present Civility Matters here at Duke Law with the goal to elevate the standards of integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession. Join us for an inspiring panel discussion led by Professor Donald Beskind.

Discussion will be focused on principles of civility, integrity and professionalism and Why Civility Matters ... especially in today's emotionally-charged legal environment.
