On February 9, 2019, FLPA organized its Dean’s Lecture Series at PUC South Campus, having Honorable Judge John C. Coughenour, United States District Judge and Pill Pickett, President of Washington State Bar Association sharing their legal experiences and inspiring FLPA’s students to become successful in their future legal careers.
In the first lecture, Judge Coughenour shared some of the key points to improve courtroom performance. He talked about preparation for the hearing, appropriate dress code, punctuality, asking questions, respect and courtesy, and candor to the court.
In the second lecture, Pickett presented his key ingredients to improve a lawyer’s life. Those ingredients included trust, friendship, and serving others.
The speakers also answered students’ questions and invited them to participate in their presentations.
