CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION

LUNCHTIME SEMINAR

“SHACKLED TO OUR SCREENS:

HAS HYPER CONNECTIVITY IMPRISONED THE LEGAL PROFESSION?”

THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

 

        The Beaver County Bar Association will present a CLE seminar “Shackled to Our Screens: Has Hyper Connectivity Imprisoned 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 presenters will be: Attorney Brian Quinn

 

        Workers today are ‘never turned off.” Like our mobile phones, we only go on standby at the end of the day as we crawl into bed, exhausted. Gradual, incremental increases in responsibilities, duties, pressures and demands at home and at work combined with long work-days and weeks has placed our profession at risk. At some point work may dominate our lives and keep us at a chronically high level of distress; yet we are often unaware that we have lost balance in our lives. Since it doesn’t appear that the “always-on” culture will be switching off any time soon, we need to develop key strategies that can help safeguard our personal life.

 

        Recent studies have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, addiction and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession. The statistics are compelling and clearly indicate that 1 out of 3 attorneys will likely have a need for substance use or mental health services at some point in their careers. And Technology? What role does it play in perpetuating this public health crisis?

 

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.

 

LUNCH WILL BE SERVED ONLY TO THOSE WHO HAVE PREREGISTERED.
