Fierce & Gritty: Resilience Training for Lawyers

An ABA Free CLE Series Webinar

December 19, 2016
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET


As lawyers, many people depend on us to be at our best. This includes our clients, who depend on us to guide, help, and protect them. It also includes our families and friends, for whom we want to be our best selves. Developing resilience is critical for lawyers to maintain fitness to practice and to avoid running afoul of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct or applicable state rules. We need to be able to bounce back quickly from setbacks, face challenges with a positive perspective, and feel energized rather than depleted. Fortunately, resilience is a collection of competencies that can be developed. This webinar will provide a general overview of how to build resilience, including strategies taught by the U.S. Army to soldiers in combat. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of our paneled experts.


The learning objectives for this ABA Free CLE Series include the following:

  • Provide an overview of factors and competencies that contribute to resilience
  • Understand the scientific evidence that resilience competencies are positively associated with well-being and business outcomes, such as engagement and retention
  • Learn at least one skill that contributes to resilience
