The (Mal)Practice
 
1:00 – 2:00 p.m., 1.0 ethics
Live Webinar ONLY
 
Speaker:
Sean Carter, Esq.
 
In this program, the presenter will use short (30-60 second) video clips from the show The Practice to discuss precise rules violated and what the TV lawyer should have done to avoid the ethical violation. While these examples will provide for a more engaging experience for the lawyer attendee, they will also serve as a reminder that our clients have viewed these same programs, giving them an unrealistic view of the role of an attorney and the tactics available to that attorney in the furtherance of the client's cause.

 

I Think, Therefore I Am: How Implicit Biases Manifest in the Legal Profession
 
1:00 – 2:00 p.m., 1.0 credit
Live Webinar Only
 
Speaker:
Sean Carter, Esq.
 
In this eye-opening presentation, the presenter will use videos to show lawyers just how easy it is to form these biases, how they manifest themselves in the way we treat clients, colleagues and opposing parties, and most importantly, how we can reduce the effect of these biases by recognizing and compensating for them.

 

Coping with Daily Life Post-Pandemic
 
12:30 – 1:30 p.m., 1.0 ethics
Live Webinar Only
 
Speaker:
Patricia McLaughlin, Esq.
 
This program examines the stress that continues to be added to our daily professional and personal lives as a result of the pandemic. The flight or fight response intended to protect us from danger can be triggered by an accumulation of stressors in our life and impact our overall well-being. This already happens in our busy lives but has been increasing with the changes we still face as a result of the pandemic.
 
The speaker will review techniques that will assist in managing stress due to issues such as isolation, anxiety, going back to court, and other larger gatherings. Small shifts in our mindset and a focus on awareness and intentional, deliberate actions can lower our flight or fight response and allow us to control our responses rather than react to external circumstances beyond our control.
