The COVID-19 pandemic sent a shockwave to lawyers, disrupting the normal routines of managing a law firm. Navigating the logistical, technological, and psychological challenges of working remotely adds to the already stressful nature of the practice of law, as the July 2019 report from the Supreme Judicial Court Steering Committee on Lawyer Well-Being underscored. To the long hours, precision, and heavy workload of the practice were added the stress of quickly integrating technology, the severe isolation of social distancing, secondary trauma, no boundary between work and a personal life, and financial pressures.
Join the Greater Newburyport Bar Association and LCL | Mass LOMAP via Zoom for a dialogue on managing the changes we’re facing. Program leaders will share tips on operating remotely and related stress that are tailored to the concerns voiced.
