Task Force on Civility and Professionalism

The Task Force on Civility and Professionalism was created with the goal of creating a series of recommendations and best practices for the bar and the bench that will increase civility and professionalism in the practice of law.

A product of the Task Force, the CMBA is please to share a recently revised version of the Lawyer's Creed of Professionalism.

In addition to the Lawyer's Creed, the CMBA now has a Professionalism Conciliation Panel to help improve the deportment of lawyers in Cuyahoga County in their interaction with each other and with courts. The Panel will use the Statement of Professionalism issued by the Supreme Court of Ohio in 1997 and the Lawyer’s Creed of Professionalism adopted by the CMBA in 2013 as the guiding principles for the new program.
