Put Into Practice CLE – Topics

1) Lawyer Well-Being: Strategies for Finding Happiness, Satisfaction and Meaning in Your Personal and Professional Life

Well-being is a hot topic in the legal profession, and with good reason. Lawyers are suffering higher rates of anxiety, depression, and stress than ever before. The problem has only been exacerbated by the pandemic. What do we mean by well-being? Is it the same thing as happiness? How can we, as individuals, improve our personal and professional well-being? What can the profession do to help foster improvement in attorney well-being? In this program, we will explore practical solutions backed by science to improve our overall well-being and reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress.


2) Tech Tips in 60 Minutes

The presenters in this fast-paced CLE will provide 60 technology tips to power up your practice, ratchet down your risk, and crank up your client communication tools. The session will help you keep abreast of the benefits and risks of the dizzying array of technology solutions available for your firm and make sure you are meeting your duty of technology competence under RPC 1.18.


3) Dealing with Clients and Attorneys with Diminished Capacity or Mental Impairment Issues


Lawyers in almost every area of practice will encounter clients and other attorneys that show signs of diminished capacity or mental impairment. During this hour, Lawyers Mutual Claims Attorneys will discuss the professional responsibility and risk management issues that can arise when representing a client with diminished capacity or encountering another attorney with mental impairment. Topics will include communication, allocation of authority, decision making, conflicts of interest, supervision, and Rules of Professional Conduct 1.2, 1.4, 1.7, 1.14, 5.1 and 5.2.
