The Nuts and Bolts of Work/Life Balance
4.0 hours CLE credit in Enhanced Ethics (or 1.0 hour CLE credit per session)
Delaware State Bar Association, Wilmington, DE
The single most important asset in any law practice is you, the lawyer. Good health and work balance are essential to the lawyer and the law practice. Fitness to practice law means more than legal expertise. It also means those qualities of physical, mental, and psychological health that enable a lawyer to carry out the responsibilities owed to clients and to the legal profession. Join us for interactive sessions that will deal with real life, as well as the professional issues that lawyers and judges face. DSB09092014NUTS_
