1.0 Hour CLE credit in Enhanced Ethics for Delaware and Pennsylvania Attorneys

Course Materials

This will be a HYBRID CLE.  You may register for this event as a live participant or by Zoom.  Even if you register as a live participant, you will receive a Zoom link by email immediately which you may disregard if not attending by Zoom. (Check spam folders if you do not.) If you are going to attend the live session, you will report to the venue and check in.  Only live attendees will receive live CLE credits after 12/31/2022.  If you do not receive your Zoom link upon registration, please contact reception@dsba.org

In 2011 a Pennsylvania attorney was suspended from the practice of law for three years following a Disciplinary Board finding of misconduct, primarily in the nature of neglect and failure to discharge various ethical duties. The attorney testified he used “computer games” to relieve professional and personal stress and acknowledged that he could not practice law until he overcame his claimed addiction to “electronic recreation.”

In today’s increasingly digital world, most people own multiple electronic devices and their use and value have increased exponentially. However, similar to tobacco, alcohol or drugs, video games and screen time can become an addiction if their continued use harms a person’s health, relationships, or career. Join us for a panel discussion among members of the Delaware Council on Gambling Problems as we focus on problematic gaming and its link to certain mental health issues, including stress, depression, poor sleep or insomnia, impulsivity, anxiety, and work-related fatigue. This conversation will also include a discussion on the convergence of gaming and gambling; lawyer specific risks of unhealthy gaming; and resources available for individuals seeking help or support.

This CLE and lunch are free to judges, lawyers, staff, and law students.  If you are seeking one (1) ethics credit, it is not free; but is available, through the DSBA, www.dsba.org for a charge of $50.00.  To rsvp for no credit, please email Caroleena Goldman at cgoldman@dsba.org or reach out to Scott Godshall at sgodshall@de-lap.org for more information about the Delaware Lawyers Assistance Program.

The Delaware Lawyers Assistance Program (DE-LAP) provides a confidential, free, non-disciplinary way for Delaware’s Judges and Lawyers to seek appropriate help for problems before they sabotage an individual’s career and/or quality of life.

** Lunch will be provided by DE-LAP**
