Unplugging to Recharge; An Ethical Discussion on the Benefits and Pitfalls of Today's Technologies

Event Description

Deadline to Register: September 10, 2019

Do you feel like you are expected to always be available? Do you feel as though you will be penalized if you disconnect? Being connected 24/7 is the norm today and fully removing yourself from your job can be difficult. Rule 1.3 directs us to be diligent and prompt, but Comment 2 advises that "A lawyer's workload must be controlled so that each matter can be handled competently." Rule 1.4 directs prompt and reasonable communication. What does this all really mean? This program will focus on the importance of disconnecting yet doing it in a way that is both practical and ethical.

Join the MSBA Construction Law Section as it kicks off its 2019-2020 CLE season with this necessary discussion from Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers about lawyer wellness in an age of 24-hour connectivity.

*Lunch will be included. Lunch, registration, and networking will begin at 11:45 am. The program will begin at 12:15pm and goes until 1:15 pm .
