(Madison, WI) – On Monday April 13 the
Paralegal Association of Wisconsin (PAW)—Madison chapter heard from IGE president and CEO, Anthony J. Gray,
when he presented an hour-long talk titled “Ethical Fitness®
for Legal Professionals.” During his talk they explored a framework
of ethical principles that, when properly applied, can guide legal professionals
through proven steps for analyzing and resolving the toughest ethical dilemmas.
An important role of the Paralegal Association of Wisconsin (PAW) is to
expand professional knowledge and provide a forum for the discussion of
subjects relating to legal matters. This event promised to accomplish
just that. Gray’s talk was presented as part of the April 2015 meeting
of the Association’s Madison chapter.
“Attorney Gray’s presentation truly expanded our view on ethics
and what it means to be faced with an ethical dilemma,” said Tonya
Petrick, Madison Chapter director for PAW. “I love that the skill
set taught by the Institute for Global Ethics can be applied to any professional
or personal situation. I only wish we’d had more time to practice
using the tools and techniques provided to us.”
Gray has presented similar talks to the State Bar of Wisconsin Health Labor
& Employment Law Institute, as well as the 2015 Western States Bar
Conference in Hawaii.
“Legal professionals come across genuine ethical dilemmas with much
greater frequency than many other professions,” says Gray. “IGE’s
methodology is designed to provide guidance on getting to the core of
a dilemma, parsing between core and non-core elements, and seeing it through
to its resolution.”
The event was held on Monday, April 13
th at the offices of Godfrey & Kahn, located at One East Main Street
#500 in Madison, WI. Mr. Gray’s 45-minute presentation was followed
by a 15 minute period of Q&A.
