|Event:||FSS-02 A Lawyer's Zealous Advocacy|
|Time:||10:00 to 12:00|
|Presenter:||Judge Moukawsher, Judge|
|Judge Moukawsher will address a Superior Court Judge's role in ensuring that minimally acceptable standards of ethical behavior are met by lawyers as "officers" of the Court. A lawyer's zealotry does not extend to the publication of reckless or intentional assertions incapable of substantiation. A lawyer is not licensed to promote occasions of mistrial or perjury. A judge must stand firm against the perception this errant conduct can be viewed as an acceptable stratagem. Acquiescence in this abuse would undermine the integrity necessary to effectively sustain the stabilizing presence of justice within our social compact.|
