On Monday, March 31, 2014, more than 30 students attended the Legal Lunch ‘n Learn program on ethics and professionalism entitled, “Why Civility and Why Now?”

Sponsored by the FIU Law Trial Advocacy Program and the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), the hour-long program was presented by Coral Gables attorney Michael A. Mullen, a partner with Gaebe, Mullen, Antonelli & Dimatteo, and President of ABOTA’s Miami Chapter.

“ABOTA’s civility program reinforces our faculty’s consistent emphasis on advocating with civility, class, and super-competence,” said Professor H.T. Smith, Director of the Trial Advocacy Program.

The ABOTA program is part of the Trial Advocacy Program’s ongoing mission to cultivate the next generation of passionate, principled, great legal storytellers. For more information about the Trial Advocacy Program, including its curriculum and community outreach, contact Professor H.T.
