The NALP Foundation for Law Career Research and Education and Fringe PD are excited to announce the relaunch of the lawyer survey on civility within the legal profession. The NALP Foundation has committed to undertake an important research project to begin an exploration of civility within the legal industry. The way that we choose to communicate with each other has a very real connection to law firm productivity and engagement as well as to attorney well-being. We take on this research in the hopes of giving law firms a mechanism to identify and mitigate this type of interpersonal communication.

We are pleased to report that over 55 law firms throughout the U.S. and Canada participated in the law firm administrator survey. We plan to publish the results of the lawyer survey and administrative survey in a  comprehensive report that will be available in fall 2019. 


Opportunities to become involved in the work of the Foundation are abundant.
