Afro-Descendant Institute of Human Rights Code of Ethics states:
(a) Human Right Monitors should treat colleagues with respect at all times.
(b) Human Rights Monitors should avoid unwarranted negative criticism of colleagues in communications with clients, or with other professionals. Unwarranted negative criticism may include demeaning comments that refer to colleagues’ level of competence or to individual attributes,
This statement not only relates and applies to colleagues but to potential colleagues (i.e., supervisors, other professionals, professors, administrators and staff alike).
Effective written communication is essential for professional Human Rights State Facilitator Candidates. Written communication (court reports, letters written regarding clients, case reports, etc.) is often the vehicle through which we represent clients and the profession. Therefore, it is imperative that Human Rights State Facilitator Monitor Candidates use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling on all assignments. State Facilitators must write with clarity, accuracy, relevance, precision, depth, and breath. The quality of writing will have a positive or negative impact on your grade.
Those of you who are not lawyers or advanced Paralegals may need to obtain assistance from the Confederation Lawyers.
