Original Program: A Most Stressful Profession: Promoting Civility and Sanity in Your Practice, December 7, 2018
In an age abounding with stories of public and private incivility, division and discrimination, how can lawyers model and promote good behavior in their interactions with members of the bench, bar and public?
And in a time when individual struggles with stress and depression make news every day, how can lawyers recognize and respond to warning signs in themselves and others in ways that promote individual flourishing?
Our featured speaker forges the way by focusing on recent studies relating to interactions between bench and bar, and by exploring the ABA’s 2017 report The Path to Lawyer Well-Being and the 2016 anti-discrimination amendment to Model Rule 8.4.
Following the featured speaker, three panels of experienced North Carolina attorneys and judges engage program attendees in a lively discussion featuring the use of hypotheticals.
