I Don't Belong - Imposter Syndrome in the Legal Profession

Thursday, November 3, 2022
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. @ BCBA

The Beaver County Bar Association will present a CLE seminar “I Don’t Belong – Imposter Syndrome in the Legal Profession” at the Bar Association building in Beaver. Registration and lunch will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. The seminar will follow from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The presenter will be: Brian S. Quinn, Esquire

Imposter syndrome, also called perceived fraudulence, involves feelings of self-doubt and personal incompetence that persist despite your education, experience, and accomplishments. While early studies focused on highly successful women, it is now clear that it can affect anyone in the legal profession – from law students to Big Law executives.

Living in constant fear of discovery, you strive for perfection in everything you do. You might feel guilty or worthless when you can’t achieve it, not to mention burned out and overwhelmed by your continued efforts. The results can be devastating.

True imposter feelings involve self-doubt, uncertainty about your talents and abilities. But what if you find yourself in an environment where your peers fail to make room for you or imply you don’t deserve your success? Along with the more traditional factors, gender bias and institutionalized racism can also play a significant part in imposter feelings. Even if only perceived, they can surely reinforce the feeling you don’t belong.

Hear our experienced speaker discuss the impact of the untimely death of his mentor and how trying to “fill his shoes” became more than a job, it took over his life. The consequences were a decades long effort to cope with and then conceal those feelings with alcohol and drugs.

This seminar has been approved by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Continuing Legal Education Board for one (1) hour of ethics credit.

Seating for the seminar is limited to 30.  The first 30 reservations will be accepted.
