Session 1
(1.0 MHSA Professional Responsibility credit)
Positive Psychology: Proactive Tools and Techniques
The aspiration to “feel better” is admirable but shortsighted, especially for lawyers. We face formidable societal and organizational obstacles to achieving a sense of well-being. The factors that make lawyers a vulnerable population, in combination with mainstream messaging about positivity, create a counterproductive and harmful approach to lawyer well-being. This workshop uses brain science and interactive techniques to challenge participants’ preconceived notions of positive thinking, depression, and anxiety, and explore how impactful their mindset truly is. 
Chelsy Castro, Castro Jacobs Psychotherapy & Consulting, Chicago

Session 2
(1.5 Professional Responsibility credits)
Webcam Like You Mean It

Apply lessons from cinematographers, YouTubers, and online gamers to communicate effectively on (web)camera.

  • Add a working knowledge of camera angles and lighting to your toolkit
  • Improve your audio and video quality with things you already own
  • Set up your home studio with cinematic flair

Session 3
(1.0 Professional Responsibility credit)
E-Lawyering: Making the "E" Mean Electronic and Ethical
Pandemic-related shutdowns merely hastened the transformation of the delivery of legal services. E-lawyering is here to stay. This presentation will address the ethical pitfalls inherent in the virtual, or semi-virtual, practice of law, and will give best practice advice on how practitioners can continue to adhere to the Rules of Professional Conduct regardless of whether their “platform” is physical or technological.

    • Gaps in laws and emerging technologies-- the “not technically breaking the law” game.
    • Breaking the myth of cryptocurrencies – it's not just for the bad guys.
