Failure of Balance
This program addresses the impact on families when attorneys seek to deal with the stress of the practice of law by turning to alcohol or other substances. A panel of attorneys and their spouses describe the impact such a course of action had on their marriages and how they confronted the problem and dealt with the consequences.
This program is made possible by the Charlotte School of Law (who recorded the program and has graciously allowed the NCBA to use the video) and Lawyers Insurance Agency who generously provided funding to make this CLE available to NCBA members.
This presentation is part of "The Law is a Jealous Love: Loving the Law Without Neglecting Your Spouse, Children, Friends or Yourself" which was originally offered on February 24, 2012.
The program was jointly planned by the NCBA Committee on Lawyer Effectiveness and Quality of Life and BarCARES of NC.
