Answering the Call to Self and Service | Mental Health Tools for Pro Bono and Legal Services Practitioners

1.0 Elimination of Bias CLE Credit

As “the new normal” continues to evolve, the legal profession—especially pro bono and legal aid practitioners—have an increasing interest in attorney and client mental health. Low-income people have been devastated by the pandemic. When they come to us for help, these clients are often sharing stress, depression, and other mental health concerns along with their legal issues. Pro bono and legal aid practitioners are best equipped to serve indigent clients when attorneys have tools to support their own mental health, and have knowledge of resources for clients in crisis.

Managing Ethics, Negativity & Stress in Family Law Practice

As lawyers, our duties under the Rules of Professional Conduct underpin our service to clients. We are accustomed to quiet withdrawals, transfers of representation, and serving clients well, even when clients are at their most difficult.  We work in the midst of looming deadlines, mountains of cases, negativity, and other stressful conditions. Our duties as advocates frequently put us in the line of fire with difficult parties and opposing counsel, while requiring us to maintain the integrity of the profession and respect the rights of others.  Learn how stress, negativity, and ethical duties interact and how we can better manage our practice, our lives, and our ethical obligations.

Weed on the Worksite

1.0 Standard CLE Credit

When Minnesota “accidentally” legalized some forms of THC last year, it made recreational marijuana legalization all but guaranteed. This raises a not insignificant amount of questions for the construction industry. Can employers prohibit all marijuana use for safety sensitive positions? What happens if an employee tests positive? What if we find marijuana at work? What happens if an employee gets injured at work and we hear rumors they were high? This session will cover the likely answers to these questions and provide some practical approaches to addressing weed in the workplace.
