Information

Why Attend?

  • Learn the symptoms of digital addiction
  • Consider the ethical dangers of digital addiction for lawyers
  • Evaluate whether digital addiction is impacting your law practice—and your life
  • Determine whether you need a digital detox—because most lawyers do
  • Make and follow a plan that results in controlling your use of digital devices

Our technology is with us to stay. But we can decide when to use it. Who determines your relationship to technology? In the end, you do. It is a choice we make every day—and if we can’t control our technology, we risk our health, our relationships and the quality of our legal work. So go ahead and make some resolutions about “getting off the grid.” You won’t regret it.

Join our speakers in a conversation about how detaching can increase your service to your clients and increase your productivity, while enhancing your vitality and wellbeing. This program tackles realistic strategies and best practices for unplugging.

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance.

A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
