The Florida Bar Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism and Florida International University College of Law will hold a professionalism symposium this month.
The half-day event, Professionalism Matters, is set for 8 a.m. Wednesday, February 27, at the college in Miami.
“The program is designed to enhance and support efforts of the Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism, The Florida Bar, and Standing Committee on Professionalism to continue to try to infuse our culture with notions of stability, professionalism, and leadership,” said George Knox, a law professor at FIU.
Speakers plan to discuss why professionalism matters, mindfulness, and how to embrace professionalism. In two panel discussions, justices, as well as state and local leaders, will share their views on the subject.
“Our panel on the view from the judiciary will feature Judge Alan Gold, who has been a pioneer in efforts to have lawyers appreciate wellness, fitness, and mindfulness in the practice of law,” Knox said. “Our keynote speaker is Raoul G. Cantero, one of the most active and vigorous chairs of the Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism.”
