Attorney Guidelines —
Civility And Professionalism

The State Bar of California has adopted the Guidelines of Civility and Professionalism set forth below.

Uncivil or unprofessional conduct not only disserves the individual involved, but also demeans the legal profession and system of justice as a whole. Judge Crandall strongly endorses these Guidelines and encourages counsel to take the attorney's pledge that appears at the end.

Copies of the full and abbreviated versions will be available in Department 9.
