The Value of Hiring a "Credible" Attorney

Attorney credibility and its influence on courtroom verdicts has been a topic of interest to attorneys for quite some time. Some attorneys believe that their credibility matters, while others believe that only the evidence matters. The purpose of this webinar is to take an in-depth look at the definition of attorney credibility, discuss the ways in which attorney credibility can influence verdicts, and identify ways in which attorneys are hurting their credibility.

Mental Health and the Practice of Law

Mental Health and the Practice of Law

Dec 4, 2019 - Dec 11, 2019

Join us for this two-part webinar series on mental health.

Part 1- A Challenge to Our Profession

This webinar is an in-depth discussion of the mental health challenges facing the legal profession. Lawyers experience mental illness issues and suicide far beyond those experienced by the general population. These issues take a toll not only on attorneys but on their clients as well, as made evident by the frequency with which mental health issues are discussed in disciplinary opinions. Learn how to recognize these issues in yourself and others, and how to respond to them when they arise through the presentation of facts and law, and the discussion of hypothetical situations.

Part 2- Legal and Ethical Considerations

This webinar discusses the legal and ethical principles relating to mental health issues in the legal profession. Even before they start their careers, lawyers are faced with mental health disclosure obligations on their bar applications. These obligations follow the attorneys, though perhaps only by implication, for their entire careers. Lawyers’ duties in this regard do not, however, end with self-inquiry, as issues arise concerning the mental health of both colleagues and opponents. Learn here what legal and ethical obligations exist, and how to fulfill them.
