When Your Client Is Impaired

Event Description

Online registration is now closed, to register, please email Section Manager Yajaira Lansiquot at ylansiquot@mnbars.org .

Remote Only Event

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?  What if the issue is not with a client but with a colleague?  The answers are seldom simple. This program will provide an ethical framework for lawyers facing these questions in addition to practical guidance and resources.
