National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism

The National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism is a consortium of the following six nationally-recognized law school programs on ethics and professionalism:

NIFTEP conducts national and international workshops that bring together leading academics and practitioners involved in teaching legal ethics and promoting professionalism.

Other NIFTEP projects include the International Forum on Teaching Legal Ethics and Professionalism, a user-driven online community and resource library for ethics teachers, scholars, and practitioners worldwide.


The Fall 2018 NIFTEP Workshop will take place December 4, 2018 at 4pm through December 6, 2018 at 11am at Melbourne Law School in Melbourne, Australia, immediately preceding the 8th International Legal Ethics Conference (ILEC8)

The workshop is produced with support from United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), under the Education for Justice (E4J) initiative.  

From past workshop evaluations:

This was the best program for learning innovative ways of teaching legal ethics that I have ever attended.
