Coping with Burnout and Staying Ethical While You Do It

$60 for MBA members | $95 non-members 

The last few years have been a doozy, and for some, it may feel like there is little relief in sight. Managing our well-being through the ups and downs of an ongoing global pandemic, staff shortages and upheaval in the labor market, while maintaining a law practice and a personal life, has been challenging for most, and overwhelming for many. Nellie Barnard, Schwabe Williamson & Wyatt PC; Holli Houston, Professional Liability Fund; and Bryan Welch, Oregon Attorney Assistance Program will walk through factors that contribute to burnout, strategies for mitigating its effects, as well as the legal ethics issues at play when a lawyer or someone the lawyer supervises is experiencing burnout, including competence, diligence, client communication, candor to the tribunal, confidentiality, withdrawal, and lawyer supervision obligations.  We will discuss how to maintain your practice, and practical tips for giving yourself some professional breathing room so you can thrive personally and professionally. 

The MBA will apply for one hour of Ethics and one hour of Mental Health and Substance Use OSB MCLE credits.
