In a world of constant surprises, our lives and our

practices must be redesigned over and over again,

chapter by chapter, as we live them. Few of us know

how to do this, even after many years of training

and our experience as attorneys. This seminar

provides the tools you need to author your next

chapter, no matter your age or whether you are a

judge, a solo practitioner, practicing as a member

of a firm, practicing in the public sector, or not

practicing in a traditional environment. You will

identify your own core values as you piece together

challenging plans for the future you want.

This seminar integrates dynamic, professional

presentations with small coaching groups to guide

you into the years ahead with vision, direction, and

thoughtful planning as a lawyer or a judge. This

approach is grounded in key concepts of adult

development and human systems theories, as

explained by our faculty and facilitated by the

coaches who will work with each small group.

At this seminar you will:

• Identify significant priorities over the next

few years.

• Learn how to connect your own beliefs and

values to your daily schedule.

• Link your personal/professional goals to the

new opportunities and resources around

Many successful attorneys assume

happier they’ll be. Sadly, we know

that’s often not the case. Many come

to realize that money is not the only

way to measure success, and that the

goal of amassing billable hours as

the sum of one’s worth is a perilous


These days it’s not enough to be a “good lawyer.” One

needs to be good at managing people in the office,

astute in the marketing arena and virtually always “on

call.” This focus on working longer and harder is not

necessarily reflected in financial rewards and it leaves

many lawyers with limited opportunities to maintain

their personal and family life in a satisfying fashion.
