Recognizing Impaired Attorneys, Parties, and Witnesses

Wellness Wednesday is a complimentary series for Judicial Division members

A psychiatry professor will offer guidance and suggestions on recognizing impairments and handling this situation when it arises in our courtrooms and tribunals. Two experienced administrative law judges will offer insights and experiences handling these issues
