October is Legal Professionalism Month in Colorado, as proclaimed by Chief Justice Nancy Rice, Colorado Bar Association President Loren Brown, and Deans Martin Katz and Phil Weiser. Each week this month, we will be sharing a professionalism pearl of wisdom from a member of the bench or bar.

The DBA YLD will share some of these “pearls over the next few weeks. We hope you enjoy them!

LPM_fulllogoLegal Professionalism Month aims to encourage members of the legal profession, professional entities, and judicial officers and staff to rededicate themselves to demonstrating the highest standards of professionalism and integrity and promote public confidence in the profession and the court system.

This week’s Pearl of Wisdom comes from Carolyn Powell and the Association of Corporate Counsel:
