Webinar: Mindfulness for Lawyers... Really?

Make 2017 the year you are more productive, resilient, and relaxed. Join the Webcast from the warmth and comfort of your home or office to examine how being more mindful can make you a better lawyer.

The CBA's Mindfulness and the Law Committee was launched to examine two questions: 1) what exactly is mindfulness and 2) how can a mindfulness help lawyers be more effective in their practice. The Webinar will touch on these issues and more. Panelists will examine the science behind mindfulness; address the benefits of mindfulness for lawyers in life and work; and provide resources and food for thought.

Speakers:
Jeffrey Bunn, Latimer LeVay Fyock LLC; Chair, CBA Committee on Mindfulness and the Law
Chris Cinnamon lawyer, martial artist, and owner of Chicago Tai Chi, offering private instruction and a regular schedule of Tai Chi and Qigong classes.
Moderator:
Kathy Morris, Under Advisement, Ltd.; Featured Legal Career Advisor for the CBA Career Advancement Program; Longtime Transcendental Meditation (TM) Enthusiast

Webinar: Non-traditional Careers for Lawyers

Many lawyers ponder what else they can do with their law degree and their skills. Kathy Morris, the CBA's featured career counselor for the CAP program, will lead a discussion on non-traditional career paths for lawyers. She will cover options for a law degree beyond practicing law, how to find JD preferred jobs and other alternative roles, and ways to adjust your job search when looking for a non-lawyer job, and more.

Kathy will be joined by special guests that will share their alternative careers paths and how they made their career transitions.
