7th Annual Cultural Competency in Family Law Practice: Lunch With Your Family Law Judge

From physical appearance, to choice of words, tonality and manner of addressing others (the Court, the Judicial Assistants, the opposing counsel, and the witnesses) a litigant, knowingly or unknowingly, is controlled and guided by the culture of her/his immediate families, extended relatives, friends, classmates, teachers, spouses, co-workers, religious, and political beliefs. And under the adversarial nature and environment of the legal proceedings any unfamiliar cultural behavior may be interpreted as disrespect and prejudice toward others.
