Mental Health and The Practice of Law: Professional Health and Professional Ethics (Part 2)

Program Number
Program Date
CLE Credits

In the last 20 years, our profession has devoted a great deal of attention to the mental health of attorneys. 

This two-part presentation (which can be watched in any order) goes beyond outmoded fear-based discussions of statistics and answers real questions about how we can help ourselves and others. The ethics focus of this presentation is an attorney’s duties with respect to other attorneys. What are our obligations with respect to subordinates, colleagues, supervisors and even opposing lawyers who may have mental impairments? What is the role of the judiciary? These questions will be presented in the context of our profession’s changing approach to attorney mental impairment over time. ABA rules discussed: 1.1, 1.6, 1.14, 5.1, 5.2, 8.3; Model Code of Judicial Conduct 2.14.
