This program will explore many aspects of Nelson Mandela's biography, with particular emphasis on his training and development as a lawyer. It will also describe how President Mandela practiced the skills of lawyering throughout his entire life. The talk will also focus on the deep spiritual life that Nelson Mandela developed, and how this inner life continually impacted his lawyering skills as well as who he was as one of the greatest individuals of the 20th Century.

Lawyers can be humanitarians in addition to being advocates. To be an effective lawyer, one must stand in the shoes of the client and understand what is important to them. A lawyer's overarching duty to the client, court, and public requires a burning commitment to the moral underpinnings of the legal profession, and consciousness of the economic, social, and political factors that shape the world.

The program will connect Nelson Mandela’s life with today’s Rules of Professional Conduct, to show how they are relevant to each of us.

Bill Manning practices business litigation, intellectual property litigation and personal injury litigation, concentrating in the manufacturing and technology industries. Among many professional accomplishments, he has been appointed Chair of a Magistrate Selection Committee, three times to a Federal Court Magistrate Selection Committee and twice to a Magistrate Reappointment Committee. He was previously appointed to the Minnesota Federal Court Federal Practice Committee.
