Developing Resilience for Successful Practice of Law

November 14, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 12:50 pm

How you think under stress and pressure is critical to your success as law students and future practitioners. Your “think like a lawyer” training is helpful when you’re working on legal matters, but it may interfere with your ability to effectively communicate with staff, colleagues, clients, and your family. Luckily, there are specific research-based strategies that have been shown to help you develop a resilient mindset and develop the ability to think about challenges in a more flexible and accurate way.

During this workshop, you’ll learn about and practice some of following:

  • A five-step process to stop worst-case scenario thinking
  • Key thinking traps that cause you to miss critical information and undercut leadership capabilities
  • How to develop a mindset of confidence by building your self-efficacy and reducing imposter syndrome

Please join us for a non-pizza lunch on Wednesday Nov. 14, 2018, noon-12:50 pm, WCC 3009. Paula Davis-Laack, JD, MAPP, is a former practicing lawyer turned stress and resilience expert who started her own company teaching busy lawyers, law students and organizations how to build their resilience to stress.
