View a sample from a live program
Substance abuse is a huge problem in the legal profession. Lawyers suffer among the highest rates of alcoholism, drug addiction and being shot in the face by the former Vice President. And while Mr. Carter can't do much about Dick Cheney's aim, he can show you how to detect, treat and prevent substance abuse within your organization.
In this webinar, the speaker will discuss substance abuse and common mental illnesses that impair a lawyer's ability to faithfully fulfill his/her duties as both an advocate and an officer of the court. Specifically, the speaker will explain how substance abuse and mental illness play a part in many disciplinary matters / malpractice cases and the most common ethical violations resulting from these ailments (e.g., failure to communicate, lack of diligence, trust account violations, etc.). The speaker will then closely examine the detection, treatment and prevention of each specific malady.
This program is eligible for 1 hour of Ethics in AL.
