For those who missed it, last month’s ABA webinar, “Colleagues Under the Influence: Licensure and the Impaired Lawyer,” is now available for purchase. In it, panelists examine addiction within the legal profession through a discussion on the science of addiction, how impairment relates to disciplinary action and ethical considerations and how lawyer assistance programs are there to offer confidential assistance. Your ABA e-news recently featured the program in their article, “Colleagues under the influence: Signs, available help, obligations.”
The program is sponsored by ABA Government and Public Sector Lawyers Division and co-sponsored by the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (CoLAP). Panelists include CoLAP Commission Member Linda Albert and CoLAP Advisory Committee Member Tracy L. Kepler.
