This year's speaker is Professor Heidi K. Brown. Professor Brown is a graduate of The University of Virginia School of Law, a law professor at Brooklyn Law School, and a former litigator in the construction industry. Professor Brown champions the importance of openly discussing stressors, anxieties, and fears in lawyering, and helping quiet and anxious law students and lawyers become profoundly effective advocates, in their authentic voices. She just released her third well-being book entitled, The Flourishing Lawyer: A Multi-Dimensional Approach to Performance and Well-Being.
Professor Brown's program, Civility Reboot: Defusing Bullies and Cultivating Respectful Rigor in Advocacy offers a fresh approach toward addressing the detrimental effects of incivility, bullying, rudeness, and inappropriate intimidation that unfortunately pervade the legal profession and appear to have been exacerbated by the stress of the pandemic. Professor Heidi K. Brown--a twenty-year veteran of the rough-and-tumble field of construction litigation who now teaches law and writes about lawyer well-being and healthy performance--will 
  1. Explore the negative ripple effects of incivility and bullying in our profession, including issues relating to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, 
  2. Seek to inspire a civility reboot by highlighting ethical principles that can get overshadowed by the day-to-day intensity and stress of lawyering, and 
  3. Offer practical tips for defusing toxicity (in ourselves and others) and instead cultivating respectful rigor in service of our clients, the profession, and society.
