Ethical Train Wrecks and Other Avoidable Disasters: Practical Steps to Heading Off Professional Misconduct Before It Happens

The practice of law has always had its share of stress, but the climate in recent years has been described by many as nothing short of brutal. This seminar examines the links between the ethical and professional demands of litigation practice and an attorney’s mental health. Using clips from the legal thriller Changing Lanes, this presentation provides a powerful and entertaining forum for exploration of the manifold sources of stress encountered in the litigation process, and the corresponding toll they can take on an attorney’s mental health and psychological well-being (and vice versa).
