A vast majority of lawyers in all settings report that pressure and tension on the job is considerable. Stress and sleep deprivation among lawyers often cause job dissatisfaction, burnout, depression, and substance abuse which, in turn, cause ethical violations, malpractice, and various types of unprofessional behaviors. It hurts lawyers and their families, diminishes their ability to serve clients, and reduces the respect that people have for our entire system of justice. The core values contained in the Nebraska Rules of Professional Conduct, such as integrity and civility, require lawyers to manage their stress levels by reducing their dysfunctional negative thoughts and emotions (e.g., anger). Furthermore, ABA Formal Opinion 03-429 (June 11, 2003) imposes an ethical obligation on law firms to assist lawyers who are mentally impaired.

Attendees will walk away from this program with an understanding of the effects of stress and sleep deprivation on the body and mind and how proper management of stress improves mental health, which allows attorneys to better serve their clients, the justice system, and the public. Attendees will learn effective ways to reduce stress through higher quality and quantity of sleep and through simple relaxation techniques.
