Avoiding Burnout as an Ethical Imperative

Event Description

Remote Only Event

As lawyers serving clients, the profession, and our system of justice, we can find ourselves feeling exhausted, discouraged, stressed, and “burned out” even in the best of times.  Burnout, and the chronic workplace stress that leads to it, has a significant impact not only on our health and well-being, but on our ability to meet the ethical standards of our profession.  This timely program explores the impact of chronic stress and burnout on us and our professional responsibilities, and the imperative to address it to avoid harm to our clients and ourselves. 

Judith Rush, Outreach Manager, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers
