It’s no secret that many attorneys—especially women—find law practice and family care responsibilities incompatible. Even the generous “family leave” policies at big law firms can prove to be a double-edged sword leading to bias against the hiring and promotion of women who are more likely to take advantage of such policies. Work expectations that are incompatible with life outside of the office can make legal careers unsustainable for those who wish to have a life outside of the law. Learn how to improve the profession by helping to shift the perceptions of family leave and build and encourage family-friendly workplaces.

Law practice, by nature, is full of difficult and stressful communications. Internalizing the conflicts constantly presented by clients, colleagues, opposing counsels, and judicial officers is a recipe for burnout. By learning to communicate empathetically and compassionately, you will more effectively deescalate and resolve conflict in your professional and personal life and reduce stress. Improve your communications with your most difficult clients and colleagues with these methods.
