Resiliency Under Stress: A Lawyers Guide to Successfully and Ethically Navigating the Practice of Law
October 28, 2020, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, 1 hour CLE (.5 Ethics); Speakers: Corey B. Rabin, Eric Webber, and Barbara Mardigian.
This presentation explores the basics of resiliency in the legal profession and the impact of a lawyer’s ability to manage through challenges (within the profession, our communities, in our personal lives) on one’s ethical requirements and competency to practice law. Resilience is a person’s capacity for stress-related growth, and lawyer personality research reveals that lawyers as a population tend to be quite low in the trait. This presentation specifically addresses (i) the specific needs and difficulties for legal professionals to develop and maintain resiliency and (ii) how increasing resiliency enhances many critical performance skills in the practice of law.
