“Wild Card” Credits

Don't think you need three ethics credits? Ethics credits are "wild card" credits that can be applied either as ethics credits or generally toward your overall 12-credit CLE requirement.

Special thanks and acknowledgement to the Atlanta Bar Association, producers of the Lincoln on Professionalism DVD, for making the DVD and selected accompanying materials available. Both were prepared by the Atlanta Bar Association with the Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism.

Our thanks, as well, to the PBA Civility in the Profession Committee for their support and sponsorship of this program. The Committee's mission is to instill, promote and enhance professionalism and civility within the legal profession by encouraging discussion about the importance of professionalism and civility among the members of the bar, the judiciary and the public. We hope this program offers a means for meeting that objective. 

All attendees will receive the course book as a digital download. A printed copy of the course book is available, at a discount to attendees, for $20. If you wish to purchase the printed version of the course book, please call PBI Customer Service at 800-932-4637.
