Behind the Cool Image: Coping with Loss and Navigating the Pathways of Grief
Expires: Jan. 25th, 2026

1.0 hour CLE credit in Enhanced Ethics
News Flash: Lawyers are human. Subsequently, they experience grief which is a normal human response to the loss of someone or something you love. Although a CLE and workshop on grief cannot fully address the uniqueness of an individual’s loss, we can use this program to educate and learn more about the process of grief. After the death of a loved one, or other life-altering losses, your world changes. Navigating through grief to your “new normal” is often filled with overwhelming emotions that can be difficult to understand. And even more difficult to suit up and continue lawyering. Moreover, it can be a tool to better understand a client or staff person too. DSB01252024BEHIN
