January 26, 2022, 12:00 COMPETENCY
Name:
 Emotional and Social Intelligence for Lawyer Wellbeing
Blurb: The epidemic of stress and burnout is affecting every sector of our society, but even more so the legal profession. A study by the American Bar Association found that over 25% of lawyers suffer from depression, 21% have a drinking problem, and 19% experience anxiety. Burnout and mental distress not only take a toll on the wellbeing of lawyers, but also make their clients, people, and businesses vulnerable, impairing decision-making, problem-solving, and risk management.

Drawing upon contemporary neuroscience, spiritual wisdom and creative practices, this interactive course sheds light on the inner workings of the emotional brain, and teaches frameworks and practical techniques to boost emotional and social intelligence – critical dimensions of human wellbeing. Through a combination of lecture, exercises, and experiential activities, it engages participants to develop their own actionable strategies to incorporate the learnings in daily life, for emotional regulation, mind/body rejuvenation, and improved relationship with both oneself and others, as well as sustainable productivity and personal growth.

January 27, 2022, 12:00  ELIMINATION OF BIAS
Name:
 Implicit Bias and Diversity in the In-House Counsel Setting
Blurb: Implicit biases are universal and can encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments and outcomes. These biases are unconscious attitudes, learned from an early age, that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in everything we do. If left unchecked or unrecognized, implicit biases in the workplace can hinder diversity, recruitment, promotion, and retention and can detrimentally impact an organization’s culture. With the recent increased national focus on societal racial inequality, it is more important than ever to achieve an understanding of how our implicit biases affect our decision-making processes in the workplace.
