Program Summary

The legal profession has no answer to the one-hundred-year-old problem of lack of access to justice by low- and middle-income people. The profession is not able to help solve many of the legal problems typical Americans face including discrimination, the large number of work-related legal problems employees face, school arrests, victim rights, delays in the court system, the failure of the court system to employ modern information technology, and many others. This course discusses how you can become a change agent in the legal profession from a person who has been a change agent in the legal profession for nearly four decades.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Learn how to work with key stakeholders and create needed change in the legal profession
  • Learn how to build your reputation as a change agent
  • Learn how to earn a good living being a change agent
  • Learn how to maintain work-life balance being a change agent
  • Learn how to pick your fights from a long list of possible changes the legal profession must go through soon to help solve the intractable shortcomings of how lawyers, courts and the profession currently operates
