CHICAGO, Jan. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Clifford Law Offices, a nationally renowned personal injury and wrongful death firm in Chicago, is hosting its 15th annual two-hour continuing legal education program at 2:30-4:30 p.m., on Thursday, February 17, 2022. Already more than 3,500 lawyers have registered for this event.

The first hour, "Mind, Body & Soul: Defining Well-Being in the Law," will discuss how the six components of well-being – emotional, intellectual, occupational, physical, spiritual, and social — have evolved since a culture shift from the 2017 National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being issued its Report & Recommendations.

Robert A. Clifford, founder, and senior partner at Clifford Law Offices will moderate the program. Speakers are Erin Clifford, Partner, Clifford Law Offices and Founder/CEO of Erin Clifford Wellness; Brian Cuban, Lawyer, and Author of "The Addicted Lawyer;" Tracy Kepler, CNA Risk Control Director, Adjunct Law Professor and former Director of the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility; Judge David Shaheed (ret.), Associate Professor at Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs.

The Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism approved the program for one hour of professional responsibility credit (Mental Health and Substance Abuse). The Missouri Bar has approved the Wellness course for 1.2 hours of ethics credit. The State Bar of Texas has approved the program for one (1.0) hour in ethics credits for lawyers attending from that state. All have been approved for live attendance only.

The second hour entitled, "Mind, Body & Soul of Diverse Lawyers: The Weathering Effect," addresses a relatively new term that deals with one's experiences and reactions as a lawyer in a diverse community that are different because of one's race, gender, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic status, and other diverse factors and how it can create an erosion of professional, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health from unconscious bias and daily microaggressions.

Clifford will once again moderate the program of speakers: Lea Gutierrez, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Director at the Cook County State's Attorney's Office; Leslie Davis, CEO, National Association of Minority & Women Owner Law Firms (NAMWOLF); Judge Lindsey Draper (ret.), Former Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney, Assistant Public Defender, and Judicial Court Commissioner primarily with the Children's Court; Vice President of DEI for the Institute of Well-Being in Law.

The Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism approved this program for one hour of professional responsibility credit (Diversity and Inclusion). The Missouri Bar has approved the program for 1.2 total hours, including 1.2 ethics hours and 1.2 elimination of bias hours. The State Bar of Texas has approved the program for one (1.0) hour in ethics for lawyers attending from that state. All have been approved for live attendance only.
