Proactive Lawyer Self-Assessments: Promoting Professionalism, Inclusivity, and Access to Justice 

Speaker Jonathan White 

This presentation will review the concept of proactive practice management programs. Colorado operates such a program for its lawyers known as the Colorado Lawyer Self-Assessment Program. It helps lawyers meet ethical obligations, better serve clients, and run efficient practices. An important aspect of these programs is content that goes beyond basic requirements of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The Colorado Lawyer Self-Assessment Program includes content related to access to justice and inclusivity. Accordingly, the programs benefit consumers of legal services by giving lawyers who participate in such programs resources to expand their services to a more diverse pool of clients.

At the end of this session, participants will:

  • Gain an increased understanding of voluntary, confidential proactive practice review programs and their benefit to lawyers and their clients.
  • Become more familiar with the publicly-available resources that discuss lawyer ethics as well as concepts ranging from lawyer well-being to inclusivity.
  • Learn how to create such programs and, in tandem, market them to lawyers.
