Civility in the legal profession. Some think of it as a nod to archaic forms that uphold classist underpinnings of the profession. Some think of it as the best thing about Canadian lawyers, their respect for one another and the court. Some think of it as a state body limiting the lawyer's free expression and ability to advocate for clients. Whatever your opinion is, civility is an immoveable tenet of the Rules of Professional Conduct, and it continually raises debate. What is it? What is its role? What kind of conduct reaches the level of incivility?
