Ethically Dealing with Substance Abuse and Addiction in the Legal Profession (12/15/2020)

Program Number: 30276 Presenter: Joan Bibelhausen, JD

Studies show that lawyers are at greater risk for alcohol and other substance use disorders, depression, other mental illness, and stress than members of other professions or the general population. This stress has been exacerbated in 2020 as lawyers are on the front lines in our nation’s crises and major events. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness. By understanding lawyer stress, this continuum, and the facts about addiction and mental illness, lawyers can reduce their risk, encounter fewer ethical challenges, and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a problem. Signs, symptoms, risk factors and recovery regarding these problems will be presented. The discussion will include competence (1.1), diligence (1.3), communication (1.4) and other ethical considerations and the program will offer timely tools to reduce risk as well as information on lawyer assistance programs and other resources.

Program Number: 30116 Presenter: Sharon D. Nelson, Esq., John W. Simek

Program Number: 29181 Presenter: Whitney Hodges, Esq., Stephanie Sweat, Esq.

While federal law, including the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, still prohibits cannabis-related activities within its border, several largely progressive laws in applicable to thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia permit the possession, cultivation, transportation, and distribution of cannabis in some form or another, including medical and adult use. This program will present a case study of three states in various stages of the full legalization process – Colorado, California and Illinois. This program will cover: • Brief history of cannabis legalization in these states • What local governments may regulate and deem appropriate use of land within their jurisdictions • Court reactions sustain local government control of cannabis activity • Common trends we are seeing by local governments • Fundamental cannabis specific concepts in leases • Common trends we are seeing in leases and sale agreements

Substance Abuse, Chronic Stress, Trauma, Mental Health and Addiction (12/11/2019)

Program Number: 29146 Presenter: Joan Bibelhausen, JD

Lawyers face stress daily and are subject to particular circumstances which can lead to higher levels of stress than for most other members of the population. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness, particularly depression, which are also more prevalent among lawyers. By understanding this continuum and the facts about addiction and mental illness, lawyers can reduce their risk and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a mental health or addiction/dependency problem. Signs, symptoms, risk factors and recovery regarding these problems will be presented.
