Attorney Licensure and the Impaired Professional

21 Mar , 2022

To register for the upcoming live webinar, please check back later.

Substance use disorders and mental health challenges can affect any attorney regardless of gender, culture, ethnicity, age, or socioeconomic status. This program, taught by seasoned attorneys Tracy Kepler and Laurie Besden, instructs attorneys on how to recognize the impaired professional, provides various resources to assist in the recovery, and identifies the possible disciplinary implications of an impaired attorneys' conduct. 

Ms. Besden will share her personal journey from the darkness and depths of despair, while struggling with a substance use disorder, as a license attorney, to her path of long-term recovery, where she received a full Governor’s Pardon by Governor Wolf in 2020.

We will be discussing multiple Ethics rules, including; MRPC Rule 5.1 (a) & (b), NM RPC 16-501, MRPC Rule 8.3 (a) and (c), ABA FORMAL OPNINION 03-429 (2003), VA LEO 1886 (2016), D.C. LEO 377 (2019), and MRPC 1.1, 1.16 (a)(2).
