Criminal Law Section: Elimination of Bias-Criminal Law Section: When Your Client is Impaired (live teleconference available)*
Presenters: Joan Bibelhausen, Executive Director, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers
Lawyers often see clients who appear to be suffering from substance misuse, addiction or other impairments. While it is not our job to diagnose, what is our role, responsibility and opportunity? How do our biases govern our actions and behaviors? The answers are seldom simple and never easy. This program will provide an ethical framework as well as practical guidance and resources for lawyers facing these questions.
