Get the essentials on setting boundaries from Danielle Hall, Esq. with this 31-minute installment of Webinars for Busy Lawyers!
Boundaries are important. For instance, in sports they define the area of play. On roads they tell us where we can drive and where we can’t. In personal relationships they mark the emotional and physical limits one establishes in a relationship. But what about professional boundaries?
Professional boundaries are designed to provide the framework for a healthy relationship between lawyers, their clients, and their work. Without boundaries problems can arise, schedules can implode, and the lawyer can lose a sense of work/life balance. The failure to set healthy boundaries can also create environments that negatively effect your mental health and are ripe for potential ethical violations.
In this session, we will cover:
- the importance of setting boundaries,
- how to set boundaries, and
- the positive effects it can have for your work and your well-being.
Over 30 minutes of Q&A from the live program are included in the recording.
