April 27, 12 – 1 PM, free Wednesday Wisdom Zoom webinar for Solo & Small Firm Section members.* Presented by Melissa Caballero Alton, Alton Law, Miami Lakes and Samantha S. Loveland, Hamilton, Miller & Birthisel, Jacksonville, and moderated by Joshua Hertz. Course number 5890 is approved for 1.0 General CLE credit. REGISTER
The challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic have undoubtedly changed the way we practice law, but the lasting impact of how we prioritize home life, work life, and parenting has been entirely revolutionized as well. This CLE will explore the unique trials and tribulations lawyers face as they attempt to excel in their career as well as in parenthood—and how to use the changes of post-pandemic lawyering to benefit them in both.
*Registration will be approved when section membership is confirmed.
