Goodwin is a proud sponsor of the Federal Circuit Bar Association (FCBA) 2021 Bench & Bar Virtual Conference.
Goodwin Partner William Jay is a featured speaker on the panel, "Civility and the Profession (Ethics)." The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life for all of us, adding new challenges to what can be an
already stressful profession. Remote working environments, social distancing, and isolation present new obstacles in communicating with our colleagues as well as our opponents during these unfamiliar times. This panel will discuss how courts have dealt with civility issues in this new environment, the model rules of professional conduct, and ways in which we can express compassion and empathy with one another.
